The internet is truly amazing. You learn new things everyday, including things you don't want to know, about celebrities you once crushed on when you were an adolescent. Today, our teacher is Bow Wow.
In "what the f*ck did he tweet" news- Bow Wow, who now prefers the name Shad Moss, first sparked the rage of social media debaters when a fan asked him, "Hillary or Trump," and he responded "I dont really care because after i learned what i learned about politics i just stay away..." Let down.
Naturally, his fans began pressing him about what he learned and why it has caused him to no longer trust the voting system. He was then asked, "what have you learn[ed]? if you truly learn[ed] politics..you would be staying away..IJS" His response? "That all the world leaders are controlled by an upper power that no one knows about. I cant rock w it."
Now, as a natural born conspiracist myself, that's not the worst reasoning in the world, although I disagree with it. But it was the tweet that came next that basically had everyone screaming "Oh lawd Jesus! It's a fire!"
One fan replied, "you SHOULD care, based on the fact that your ancestors died so that you could have the right to vote!"
Just for verification that your eyes aren't deceiving you, his response was: "Man i only believe what the eyes see. Im mixed. I dont know what my ancestors was doing. I only know what i see!"
Insert confused emoji here. That's a new one. Still, he clarifies when another fan asks for a better understanding and offers a polite history lesson.
"Yeah, I seen Selma," he insisted. "Was i related to anyone no. Im saying my moss side of family is NOT BLACK. Heritage different."
More than just his fans chimed in. People were legit curious about this new revelation. Check out more of his question and answers below.
Another tweeter then replied, "You'd be surprised our backgrounds could be the same..." Upon which he replied:
So apparently if you're a person of color who has traces of Native and white in their history-- you can totally negate the historical achievements of your black side? He obviously needs a serious history lesson about enslaved and Native American people, too. But I digress...
As you can imagine, some of the replies started getting ugly at that time, but I have to hand it to him-- he didn't throw a tantrum and delete all of his tweets. He stayed answering questions, albeit irrational to many. It just goes to show you that no one should be looking to celebs for answers to these things anyway.
He went on to defend his love for Trump Tower hotels (although he doesn't like him as a person), that he loves black women particularly because he grew up with his black mother, and that he loves his gay fans.
At the end of the day, he knows exactly what he sounded like tweeting that. And that is what matters.
