Bow Wow Caught in Rumors He Attacked Crew and Trashed ‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ Set
Bow Wow allegedly caused a scene last night (Aug. 30). TMZ reports that he attacked camera crew while shooting an episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta at the city's Westside Cultural Arts Center.
The rapper and actor, born Shad Moss, entered a fit of rage for unclear reasons and damaged three cameras and other equipment on set, according to the report. The show is said to have been filming a party for Da Brat when the altercation occurred.
Later Thursday night, Bow Wow shared some cryptic posts on Instagram gesturing at his mental state. Nine straight caption-less posts featured the same image of a heart monitor flatlining, followed by a tenth post featuring a photo of a lifeless hand. He has publicly discussed suicide multiple times this year and named his next album edicius—suicide spelled backwards.
This morning, Moss posted a message on his Instagram story obliquely addressing the situation. "Stop fucking over reacting and stop with the sympathy texts to my [phone emoji] yall are not therapist so stop acting like one. I got this. Thanks," he wrote in all caps. He also posted a drawing of a broken heart with the caption, "Broken."
We hope he and everyone else on the set are okay. You can view Bow Wow's social media posts in the aftermath of his reported explosion below.
