UPDATE, 1/16/21, 3:08pm ET Bow Wow took to Twitter to seemingly respond to the backlash with a tweet that read, “I just woke up… aww god. Here we go” along with a laughing emoji.

ORIGINAL: Bow Wow, 33, brought on some negative attention on Jan. 16 when a video of his Houston concert surfaced on Twitter. The clip showed a packed crowd at a club watching him perform and most of them appeared to not be wearing face masks. Users immediately began tweeting about the possible risks of COVID-19 at the show and clapped back at the rapper and the fans for allowing the event to take place.

“These people went to the club IN A PLAGUE with no masks on TO SEE BOW WOW perform in 2021,” one tweet read in response to the video, which showed a bunch of people dancing and seemingly enjoying the show despite the coronavirus. “Going to see Bow Wow in a pandemic, we are stuck in this for a long time. Selfish idiots,” another read.

“BOW WOW!!! I can’t believe my eyes,” a third user wrote while a fourth said to “Blame the governor.” A fifth asked, “Bow Wow? Y’all wanted to see him this bad?” and a sixth wrote, “Unless Bow Wow giving out vaccines y’all should be ashamed of y’all selves.” Others mentioned that the world is “never getting out of this pandemic” if maskless shows at clubs keep taking place.
Bow Wow has yet to directly respond to all the clap backs he’s receiving about the show, but he did take to his Instagram story to post a message that read, “Alotta folks getting unfollowed today!” around the time he started trending on Twitter for the feedback. Hours before that, he shared his own video clip of the crowd at the club along with some pics of a watch and drink after touching down in Houston.

The latest backlash is the second time Bow Wow’s been called out on social media this month. He was also under fire a couple of weeks ago when he posted an Instagram video of himself dancing and partying aboard a small boat with 13 bikini-clad women. “How can i not smile everyday!” he captioned the Jan. 6th post.

Many critics responded and asked why none of them were wearing face masks and others poked fun at the size of his boat in the clip.
