Update 5/11: Bow Wow responded to the #BowWowChallenge social media attention he got for this in an interview he gave to the Hot 97 show Ebro in the Morning. In the video above, he claimed that, "People don't understand the scientific method to my madness," before talking up his new WE TV show Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.
"Everything is for the show," he said, refusing to admit one way or another as to whether or not the incident was a troll, and encouraging listeners to watch the WE show when it premieres May 25th.
On the subject of social media embarrassment, Bow Wow claimed: "It doesn’t affect me. It doesn’t affect the women. It doesn’t affect the bank. It doesn’t affect anything,” he said. “Me and my homies play around all day, so you have got to have thick skin. Period. We play all day. So when the joke is around on me, I don’t really care. Our group chat it's relentless. It don't stop.”
Asked to name who else is in his group chat, Bow Wow ticked off the names of Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, and Big Percy. "We give each other the blues."
