The rapper has finally addressed the #BowWowChallenge.
Bow Wow has finally revealed why he lied about flying on a private jet following a stream of ongoing Internet ridicule.
The 'Like You' rapper - real name Shad Moss - posted a picture appearing to board a private jet last year, only to be spotted on a commercial flight by a fellow passenger shortly after.
After the images went viral, a joke known as the #BowWowChallenge took over social media where users fabricated their own exaggerated lies and posted them online.
"Players f*ck up!" Bow repeated several times during his recent interview with The Breakfast Club after being asked whether he lied previously.
When co-host Charlemagne asked Bow to admit that he was lying, Bow replied "I just said it!"
"I’m flying, and I’m like ‘Sh*t, I like the picture, I’ma throw it up! I am flying to New York, but I like this picture better.’ I didn’t say ‘I’m on this jet and I’m about to travel.’ I was like ‘Yo, f*ck it. I like the picture.’"
Moss went on to explain that the picture he posted was indeed not the plane he was boarding, but insisted that he was flying in first class and not coach as was reported.
The interview comes after the rapper previously revealed plans to create a TV show based around the viral challenge, which he claims to have been paid a million dollars for.
