Los Angeles, Jan 17 : Rapper Bow Wow was recently slammed by netizens for giving a packed club performance during the pandemic.He says he wore a mask until he got on the microphone, and that he does not want people to think he does not care.
The 33-year-old artiste gave a glimpse of his Friday night on his Instagram Story, showing off a crowded nightclub in Houston featuring several fans standing and dancing closely without masks, reports foxnews.com.
“So wait, people risking their life in a packed club to see BOW WOW??? BOW WOW?” one user tweeted.
“Ppl really risking it all for Bow wow in the year 2021?!!” another quipped.
