In the age of Catfish: The TV Show, you would think pretty much everyone on the planet knows how easy it is to do a reverse image search on Google. But apparently, Bow Wow (a.k.a. Shad Moss) missed the memo, because he just got caught trying to pass off someone else's photo - and private jet - as his own.
During his press tour for his new show Growing Up Hip Hop, the rapper and actor recently shared a photo to Instagram of a private jet, along 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." The photo not-so-subtly implied that the swanky little plane would be Bow Wow's means of transportation for the day - but before long, someone came forward to call him on his bluff.

According to a tweet from @Al_Khee, someone on Snapchat allegedly shared a photo of Bow Wow on a commercial flight to New York the same day the rapper claimed he would be flying private.
"So this guy Lil Bow Wow is on my flight to NY," the caption reads. "But on Instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned 'traveling to NY today.'"
Before long, Twitter began roasting Bow Wow for his blatant lie.
Bow Wow: I'm on the private jet!

Meanwhile, a few sleuths decided to dig a little deeper - and discovered that the image on Bow Wow's Instagram appeared to be stolen from a Florida car service's website. Others soon discovered it wasn't even the first time he'd lied about flying private.

At this time, Bow Wow has yet to address his little snafu, despite continuing to post to social media as usual.
