That Feeling When You Instagram Your "Private Jet," Then Get Busted in Coach (Let Bow Wow Explain — Badly)

That Feeling When You Instagram Your "Private Jet," Then Get Busted in Coach (Let Bow Wow Explain — Badly)

First rule of social media: Don't get caught lying.

By Alesandra Dubin

Ouch, Bow Wow.

Earlier this week, the rapper — real name Shad Gregory Moss — posted a photo on Instagram showing what he put forth as his private jet, or at least a private jet he was getting ready to board.

He captioned the photo: “Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Lets gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER."

Let's see that snap here (because oddly, it's still live):

Well, turns out the plane wasn't his. Hell, even the photo wasn't his. An eagle-eyed passenger spotted the (erstwhile?) star flying in coach, and put him on full blast on Twitter, writing, "So this guy lil bow wow is on my flight to NY. But on instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned 'traveling to NY today."

Turns out the photo belongs to a Florida-based VIP group transportation company.

Womp womp. Naturally, social media went to town on Bow Wow after that. The whole thing inspired the #BowWowChallenge meme at his expense.

But don't worry — Bow Wow has a perfectly reasonable explanation. Sort of?

“I love it, because people don’t understand the scientific method to my madness,” he said on Hot 97 Thursday morning before getting in a plug for his upcoming WE tv show, Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta. “I’m about to have to the biggest show on WE tv, period. It’s a scientific method to my madness. You gotta just watch the show. Everything’s for the show.”

So yeah — there's a method to his madness. Scientific even! Y'all just don't even know about it yet.
