Bow Wow clearly forgot that it's 2017 and people will quickly catch you out if you try and sell them alternative facts online.

The CSI: Cyber actor posted on his Instagram: "Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Lets gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER. May 25th on @wetv" with a picture of a private jet on a runway.
