You may have heard of the actor and rapper Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Moss, and his many public appearances and performances all across the country…but while preparing for a big show in NYC, he made a big mistake. Actors and musicians with large fan bases will often announce that they might be traveling, but try to be careful about where and when their actual flights will occur to avoid mobs of fans overrunning the airports.
Moss implied that he was traveling to NYC that day on a private jet by posting this picture to his Instagram account…
But just a short while later was spotted by a fan on the same commercial flight, sitting in the regular passenger seating. There was no denying it – and the rapper didn’t even try. He just said it was an “old picture” used to say “where I was and wasn’t,” to try and protect his location.
Unfortunately, people realized it was all fake and found the original image that he used was actually from a VIP transportation service located in Florida! Moss had simply uploaded the company’s promotional picture and pretended that it was his own.His fans decided to poke fun at him by starting the hashtag #BowWowChallenge, where they posted pictures of themselves to “fake it ’til you make it,” like this gem:
No one can stop you from pretending, at least! He still hasn’t responded, but his fans got a kick out of knowing the rapper was just as human as they were.
