Bow Wow may’ve been caught in a HIGHlarious lie, but he really couldn’t care less!
As we previously reported, the Like Mike actor was DRAGGED online after he was caught lying about how he was traveling to NYC. Specifically, the former child star took to Instagram on Tuesday to claim he was heading to the Big Apple via private jet, only to be snapped shortly thereafter on a commercial flight. LOLz!
To make matters worse, in response to the Let Me Hold You artist’s fib, fans on Twitter have started the “Bow Wow Challenge” where users attempt to make false claims about how rich they are. Ouch.
Thankfully, the Roll Bounce star isn’t letting this VERY embarrassing online snafu get him down. In fact, the 30-year-old had quite the clap back for his haters as he noted in a recent interview:
“The thing with the Internet is ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ we live in a time where it’s a show and prove type of thing. A lot of people can’t take comments. A lot of people can’t take scrutiny. So therefore, as a man, I hope you have balls to stand up for yourself and fight for yourself.”
So, is this you standing up for yourself?? Got it.
“A guy like me, like today they put up a story about me not coming to New York in a private plane ├óΓé¼┬ª but I know how I got to New York, you know what I mean? So it’s like ├óΓé¼┬ª what do I have to prove?”
Well, bud, you don’t have to prove anything… but you are the one who was BUSTED for lying. So maybe fans just want a little explanation as to why you lied?
Nonetheless, Bow Wow seems resolved to move forward with his life following the internet scandal. The industry vet added:
“Like I’m not gonna get on my Instagram and make a one minute video ├óΓé¼┬ª like for what? Cause then you’ll get comments like ├óΓé¼╦£You’re Bow Wow, you have nothing to prove.’ So therefore, if you know who you are you’ve got nothing to prove.”
Hey, do whatever works for you! Just maybe think before you post next time, m’kay??
