Can鈥檛鈥 stop鈥 cringing. Seriously, there鈥檚 no lack of embarrassing incidents stemming from the wild & whacky behavior of the stars 鈥 we鈥檙e looking at you, Jennifer Lawrence, Drake, and Adele 鈥 but this latest sitch may in fact be the most awkward celeb lie EVER. And, just as you would expect, the internet is all over it.

Bow Wow

It鈥檚 not unusual for the rich and famous to try to impress us with their luxe lifestyles, but what isn鈥檛 so usual is to find out that their claims are a total (cringe-worthy) lie. However, it *can* happen. Just ask Bow Wow.

Apparently traveling to New York for his Growing Up Hip Hop press tour, the 30-year-old posted a slick pic of luxury cars and a private jet to his social media feeds. Adding the message, 鈥淭ravel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Lets gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER. May 25th on @wetv,鈥 it all looked pretty impressive.

That is, until a few people totally blew it up as a blatant lie.

Bow Wow was indeed flying to NY, but not on a private jet. And one Twitter user had the proof. With the dude posting his own pic showing Bow Wow as his co-passenger, he added the caption, 鈥淪o this guy lil bow wow is on my flight to NY. But on instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned 鈥榯raveling to NY today鈥 smh.鈥

Are you cringing yet? Because that鈥檚 not it! The internet community wasn鈥檛 about to let this one go so easily and put their sleuthing skills into full effect. Naturally, they completely unwound Bow Wow鈥檚 lie. If you take a peek back at the pic the rapper claimed was his own, you鈥檒l notice a certain similarity with a promo shot from Fort Lauderdale VIP Transportation鈥檚 website.

Of course, Twitter had something (side-splittingly funny) to say about the fib鈥

Ouch. Mic? Drop.

Though, let鈥檚 remember鈥

Lesson learned.

What do you think about Bow Wow鈥檚 lie (and the internet鈥檚 reaction to it)? Let us know @BritandCo!
