Bow Wow Responds To The #BowWowChallenge, Explains Fake Jet Photo
Bow Wow knows you were laughing at him with the #BowWowChallenge and his latest response to the social media craze is EXACTLY what you’d expect from Sir Shad. On Tuesday Bow was in NYC for the “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” premiere screening, and while there with costars Zonnique,
On Tuesday Bow was in NYC for the “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” premiere, and while there with costars Zonnique, Reginae, Shaniah Mauldin, Ayana Fite and
Brandon Barnes, he was asked by Sway Calloway about THAT fake jet fiasco that took over social media.
According to Bow his mentor/surrogate dad Jermaine Dupri called him when he saw the #BowWowChallenge trending and Bow had to explain the “method to his madness.”
“He hit me like “WHAT. THE. F&%K. ARE. YOU. DOING?!” said Bow.
And I said ‘Yo, just be cool, I got this. There’s a method to my madness. Be cool. Be calm, I never actually said I was on the plane.’”
Bow continued and spoke to his “method” and his personal experience after the photo was exposed as fake. “I’m bulletproof to it all,” said Bow.
“Once America got a hold of it I said, OK. I said, damn we got a show coming. This is probably gonna be the newest hot show on WE tv. F%@k it, I’m runnin’ with it. We gonna ride this wave, we gonna spin this thing around,” said Bow.
“And for me and my homies, we joke all the time. Like, we be at the studio, we be at the bar, and it’s no cut. What I mean by that is there’s no holds barred when we crack jokes. So for me, I think what a lot of people don’t understand is, by me being in the game since five (years old), I’m pretty much bulletproof to it all. I’ve heard it all.
I’ve heard the naysayers…so for me it’s like just kick back and be like ‘OK world, pay attention to me.’ It’s the right time. We got May 25th right around the corner. That’s called P.R. Let’s go ahead and ride this thing out. That’s just how I am. I’m a high-spirited person. I never really get down. If I get outta line sometimes, and they wanna go in (on me), I let ‘em go in. I laugh at it. We kick back, we smoke, we chill. Sometimes we need that laughter. Laughter—that’s happiness, you know what I’m sayin’?
Oh and for all the broke boys still big mad at Shad, he’s got another message;
“So for me, I never trip. AND I never said I was on that plane. But I guess I’m just gonna hop on J.D. (Jermaine Dupri)’s jet and call it a day,” he laughed.”
“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” premieres on WE TV Thursday, May 25 at 10.
