    The gig took place in Houston, where the pandemic is currently raging, on Friday night to celebrate a club promoter's birthday. A largely maskless crowd can be seen singing along to his song "Like You."

    Bow Wow got the club packed in Houston

    Meek Mill and J. Prince Jr. were reportedly also there.

    Bow Wow even shared footage of the packed club to his own Instagram story:

    According to the club's Instagram, face masks are required.

    And it's safe to say that the social media backlash was pretty swift:

    Even Zach Braff got involved:

    It wasn't too long before Bow Wow himself got tweeting — once he'd woken up. In a series of now-deleted tweets, he wrote:

    FYI, Houston's 14-day average COVID-19 positivity rate is currently 17.4%. Harris County has crossed Texas' hospitalization threshold and bars are supposed to have been shut down to just pick up service, as per Gov. Greg Abbott's executive order.

    Welp, he certainly should have Bow-ed out of this one.
