Rapper Bow Wow has been attacked on social media after he hosted a packed nightclub event in Houston on Friday evening that appeared to disregard the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
On Friday night the 33-year-old rapper managed to pack a night club full of people who were maskless and clearly not following any Covid-19 regulations while celebrating club promoter Larry Morrow’s All Black Birthday Weekend.
‘Safe to say the mayor of Houston hates my guts. I can’t believe I get the blame for a whole weekend. This is ridiculous,’ the 33-year-old rapper tweeted on Monday.
‘Someone tell the Mayor of Houston TX I’m leaving right now. Geeeez! He singling me out as if I was the only celeb here this weekend. This is ridiculous,” Bow Wow wrote.
After footage from the party went viral on social media, Twitter users lashed out at the rapper, days after Texas became the second state to record two million Covid-19 positive cases.
“I would never risk my life for Lil Bow Wow…. Also, do we have no Covid restrictions in H-Town? The club needs to be shut down. There are some awful ways to die, but death by Bow Wow has to be up there. Do better people,” wrote a Twitter user.
“So wait, people risking their lives in a packed club to see Bow Wow???” another user questioned.
Another user tweeted to the musician and accused him of having no regard for the crowd’s safety as well as his own.
“At what point do you as an artist stop and say. ‘This is irresponsible?’ Do you not have a conversation with the promoters about social distancing? People are DYING because of Covid-19, especially people of color! But you got paid, right?!”
Bow Wow whose real name is Shad Moss came to his own defense claiming he had done nothing wrong and it wasn’t his party.
“Man I been hosting parties all last year. I wore a mask in the club. I can’t host with that thing on.”
In another tweet he said, “IT WASN’T MYBPARTY. But of cause ima get the blame. Up until I got on the mic. That simple keep hand sanitizer on me at all time.
He also tried to save himself by saying he didn’t want people to think he doesn’t care about the crowds. “Don’t want folks thinking I don’t car ya know…” read his tweet.
However, all the tweets by the rapper are no longer available, it seems they have been deleted.
The purported weekend long event also saw top rapper Meek Mill in attendance with Trey Songz and Fabolous also slated to perform.
