    People Are Roasting Bow Wow Because Of An Alleged Plane Picture And It's Hilarious

    Black Twitter wins yet again with the #BowWowChallenge.

    This is Shad Moss, formerly known as Lil' Bow Wow to those who were teens and tweens in the early '00s.

    Along the way, Moss dropped the Lil' in front of his stage name, but the hits like "Bounce With Me" ft. Xscape and "Take Ya Home" will always warm the cockles of our hearts.

    Earlier this week, Moss posted a photo on Instagram with the caption: "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."

    That was all fine and well until a Twitter user by the name of @Al_Khee sent out this tweet, alleging that Moss wasn't on a private jet but instead traveling on a regular plane.

    BuzzFeed News has reached out to the user to verify if the image is actually of Moss, and to Moss's publicist for comment.

    As a result, people began clowning Moss over the alleged plane/Instagram-gate, and thus the #BowWowChallenge was born.

    People began making their own fake stunts in response to the unverified photo.

    Nothing is what it seems.

    And the jokes wouldn't stop.

    "Riding in my foreign" #bowwowchallenge

    People chimed in on everything from fake cars...

    Blessed πŸ™ My new ride at the car wash. #BowWowChallenge

    ...to meals that looked less than appetizing.

    "Just ordered room service." #BowWowChallenge

    And other food, as well.

    There were even fake romantic interests.

    Y'all keep sleeping on me and mine, and we'll keep slaying #bowwowchallenge

    Jokes aside, there was another interesting detail about the whole ordeal: It looks like there's a website β€” which specializes in VIP transportation β€” that features a photo that looks pretty similar to the one Moss uploaded to Instagram.
