Mayor of Houston Uses Rapper as an Example
Bow Wow has received a great deal of criticism and blame following a party in Houston being shut down from COVID-19 protocols. Cle’ Houston nightclub hosted a party where Bow Wow was in attendance along with Meek Mill and J.Prince.
Footage of Bow Wow performing a set of music in the middle of a rocking crowd of people with no masks. The video makes Bow Wow appear to be ignorant to the social distancing guidelines that are in place to limit the spread of the Coronavirus.
Bow Wow has not been mentioned for anything musically since he was rumored to be in a Verzuz with Soulja Boy.
People took to Twitter to slam Bow Wow for the display sitting his performance as a reason COVID cases are spreading so quickly in the US.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner also voiced his disapproval of parties like the one Bow Wow was at using the rapper-turned-actor as an example of who to not follow in the social distances guidelines.
These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths. st

Bow Wow has not been silent in facing the backlash from the internet or Mayor Turner. Through his Twitter and Instagram, Bow Wow was adamant that even if he is being blamed he is not the only celebrity that is accountable.
“Someone tell the mayor of Houston TX I’m leaving right now, Geez. He singling me out as if I was the only celeb here this weekend. This is ridiculous.”
Safe to say the mayor of houston hates my guts. I cant believe i get the blame for a whole weekend. This is ridiculous.

Bow Wow deleted other tweets where he was defending his position further claiming that he has been doing events since the Pandemic began last March:
“Man i been hosting parties all last year,” he wrote. “I wore my mask in the club. I cant host with that thing on. IT WASN’T MY PARTY.”
“But of course ima get the blame. I promise my mask I wore in the club up until i got on the mic. That simple. Keep sanitizer on me at all times.”
