Bow Wow was under a heap of criticism for performing at a concert in Houston over the weekend since like all U.S. cities, Houston is still in the throes of COVID-19 spreading.

At first, Bow was defensive and said that he was being targeted by Houston's mayor Sylvester Turner, who criticized him.


“Let me be very clear. I don’t dislike @BowWowPromoTeam. While the city is in the midst of this pandemic nearly 2000 infected and 17 dying yesterday, this is not the time for concerts. Help us get past this virus and then do your thing. The same for other bars & clubs,” Turner tweeted on Monday, Jan. 18.

Bow responded on Twitter and although he apologized, the rapper was still a bit defensive.




 

"[Here’s] the TRUTH: My only statement," Bow began. "1. It was not a Bow Wow concert. I simply did one verse to like you. And went back to my section and simply put my mask BACK on. 2. I did not, I repeat, did not GET PAID for anything. It was my [boy’s] 30th bday weekend and I came down off the love. 3. I apologize if I did anything wrong. I love the city of Houston. I consider it like a 2nd home. A place I go to on my free time. 4. Sorry to the mayor for any confusion. I understand the time we are living in so I apologize. My clip was the only clip to go viral and we know why. Anything with my name attached to it reads HEADLINES. [That’s] why they chose me. I understand this is what I signed up for. I can take all the heat and not sweat. Sorry for any confusion."

Why do you think so many people would pack a concert and risk dying from COVID-19?
