Bow Wow Thinks Houston’s Mayor Using Him As Scapegoat Amid COVID-19 Superspreader Event

I don’t dislike @BowWowPromoTeam. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths. “Someone tell the Mayor of Houston TX Im leaving right now. “He singling me out as if I was the only celeb here this weekend this is ridiculous,” he added. “Let me be very clear. Bow Wow is not just facing backlash for his recent event in Houston from fans but from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner as well. Safe to say the mayor of houston hates my guts. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths. This is ridiculous,” he posted. Turner made the statement after Bow Wow tweeted that he thinks that the mayor hates him. St.”
These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. st.”
Let me be very clear. The rapper has responded by saying that he thinks he’s being singled out. “Safe to say the mayor of houston hates my guts. The same for other bars & clubs. Help us get past this virus and then do your thing. — Bow Wow (@smoss) January 18, 2021

Bow Wow’s argument is that other artistes namely Fabolous and Trey Songz, also threw concerts this weekend in Houston and weren’t singled out as he was. I cant believe i get the blame for a whole weekend. The same for other bars & clubs. Geeeeez,” he said. st #COVID19

Bow Wow responded using his Instagram Stories, where he displayed the mayor’s tweets. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. I cant believe i get the blame for a whole weekend. Mayor Turner tweeted, “These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. Though it could be said that only Bow Wow’s concert clip surfaced on Twitter, showing blatant disrespect for the coronavirus protocols. This is ridiculous. While the city is in the midst of this pandemic nearly 2000 infected and 17 dying yesterday, this is not the time for concerts. Clips of his performance surfaced on Twitter and drew the ire of many people who felt he had behaved selfishly as many of the patrons seen in the club were not wearing masks or socially distanced. While the city is in the midst of this pandemic nearly 2000 infected and 17 dying yesterday, this is not the time for concerts. Twitter
Facebook I don’t dislike @BowWowPromoTeam. He also took to Twitter to express his frustration. Bow Wow seems to be of the view that the mayor of Houston is using his as scapegoat amid backlash over a COVID-19 superspreader event he performed at last weekend. Help us get past this virus and then do your thing. st

In a later tweet, he said that he wanted it to be made clear that he had nothing personal against the rapper but that it was simply a matter of accountability. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. Following the circulation of the clip, the mayor expressed his disappointment with the incident and the fact that he thinks the club should face some repercussions for allowing the concert.
