It appears that Bow Wow has forgotten there's no fooling the internet! If you haven't checked your timeline lately, then we'll get you up to speed. Allegedly, rapper Shad Moss, better known by his stage name "Bow Wow," tried to pull a fast one on his Instagram followers by posting a photo of a private jet, suggesting he was flying in style during a press tour for his new show Growing Up Hip Hop. 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. May 25th on @wetv." Spoiler alert: Bow Wow was caught in a huge lie, and Twitter basically exploded with roasts.
Naturally, someone was quick to pull out the receipts. One Twitter user shared a side-by-side post of the Instagram photo and a screenshot of a Snapchat by someone claiming that Bow Wow was on their flight to New York City rather than flying private.

And the shadiness doesn't stop there! Another Twitter user caught Bow Wow in an even bigger lie, revealing that the photo he shared was actually stolen from a website for a VIP car service located in Fort Lauderdale.

Of course, just as the people of Twitter can always be counted on to bust out the receipts and debunk some lies, they can also turn just about anything into a meme. Bow Wow was no exception. I present to you the #bowwowchallenge:

Bow Wow certainly underestimated the power of the Twitterverse.
