Rapper Bow Wow, formerly known as Lil' Bow Wow, posted a photo on Instagram yesterday of a private jet, implying that he was taking it to New York from Peachtree Dekalb Airport in Atlanta for press appearances related to his new reality TV show Growing Up Hip Hop.

However, Twitter user Al_Khee spotted him on a regular old airplane to New York City, posting a photo with the caption “So this guy lil bow wow is on my flight to NY. But on instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned "traveling to NY today" smh." The tweet prompted the people of the internet to investigate Bow Wow’s luxe private jet claims.

Twitter users managed to track down the image Bow Wow used for his Instagram post, linking it to a an image on the Fort Lauderdale VIP transportation website. Once all truth was revealed, the internet was inspired to take the #BowWowChallenge, naturally dragging him with memes,

Bow Wow has not commented on his obviously false Instagram post, but rest assured “flu and all” he’s in New York to “take care of business” with his Gucci backpack in tow.
