Bow Wow faced backlash from social media after it was revealed that a packed event hosted by him and featuring performances from Trey Songz and Meek Mill was shut down due to COVID-19 regulations.
Bow claims he adhered to the rules.
"Man i been hosting parties all last year," the rapper wrote. "I wore my mask in the club. I cant host with that thing on." He then added, "IT WASN'T MY PARTY. But of course ima get the blame. I promise my mask I wore in the club up until i got on the mic. That simple. Keep sanitizer on me at all times."
Over the weekend, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner talked about a "loophole" allowing some bars and nightclubs to be reclassified as restaurants so that they may remain open at 50 percent capacity indoors.
"It is ludicrous when these bars and clubs have been allowed to reclassify themselves as restaurants and when you look at these pictures there is no food on the table, none, that is crazy," Tuner said on Saturday, according to KHOU-11.
