Bow Wow Tries To Teach The Origin Of The Dab & The Internet Is NOT Happy About It

Bow Wow

Class is in session, y’all.

Bow Wow AKA Shad Moss created his very own PSA on Monday to inform the masses about the origin of “dab.” The dance — which we’ve seen the dance most recently by NFL owners, news anchors, and professional athletes — has sparked an Internet craze, and the 28-year-old rapper is. just. not. having it.

What the Like Mike star probably wasn’t expecting was the insane amount of backlash from his fans! We mean, people are completely up in arms about this.

Here’s how it went down.

Bow posted the selfie video of him explaining that the “dab” is actually a strong hit of weed that makes you cough, causing you to put your mouth to your arm (hence, the dance move):

“We got the whole world dabbing, and they don’t even understand or know what dab is. First of all, dab is a strong way to smoke marijuana. It’s the purest form of marijuana. It’s extremely strong.”

The Ohio native said he is sick and tired of people dabbing all over the place without knowing what it means:

“There you go, I just helped you out. That’s the origin of it. So when you see these old people on the news, CNN, and these sports anchors that do it because they see Cam Newton do it or because they see NBA players do it — we come from the culture, we know what it is. It’s y’all that don’t know.”

Here are a few examples we’re sure the Shortie Like Mine singer is referring to:

People dabbing and dont know the origin

Soooo… seems like a pretty reasonable announcement, right? NOPE — not according to the people of the Interweb!

Many critics are even knocking the rapper for hating on the dab, when he used to do the crip walk back in the day to a very young audience.

Ch-ch-check out some of the (hilarious) responses to Bow Wow’s video (below)!

Migos, the rapper who claims rights to the particular dance, has also responded to the 106 & Park host’s dab lesson:

LOLz! This is all just too much for us to handle.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?? Which side are you on? SOUND OFF in the comments!
