A bizarre online spat has erupted between rapper and actor Lil Bow Wow and self-made millionaire Timothy Sykes. It’s all down to Bow Wow’s ‘borrowing’ of a picture of Sykes’ cash and trying to pass it off as his own. It looks as though the rapper was trying to show off how much money he has, but it’s backfired on him pretty badly, in all honesty. And turned into all-out Instagram WAR.
There’s not much class here in this flexin’ beef. It’s not all that cool to brag about money with pictures anyway, but to fake it? That’s pretty shameful.
Here’s the post that’s caused all the fuss, from Lil Bow Wow:
You can quite clearly see that it’s stolen from this, from Sykes (note the date):
Can you guess how much it cost us to build @stockstotrade software which officially launches next week? It's roughly the $1 million in cash I have here, but let's see who can guess the exact dollar amount my team & I have spent so far. We can't wait for you to see @stockstotrade and congrats to @paulrhamilton who won my last #wagyusteak guessing game, it was $1723.54, he was eerily 5 cents off on his guess! Crazy right? We're going to ship him a free copy of my 35-hour http://howtomakemillions.com DVD #dailymotivation #ilovemyjob #iloveteaching #stacksonstacks #thisthelife #stockmarket #stocktrader #jewmoney
The millionaire’s even gone one better and shown the two pictures side by side in another Instagram post to shame the rapper:
Another musician @shadmoss is using my cash photos, c'mon Bow Wow, don't post in black & white, at least use my original photo in all its glory or better yet, go signup at http://timothysykes.com/plans so I can teach you how to make it yourself so you don't have to reuse anyone else's photo, you can be my next millionaire student id you're dedicated! #musicdoesntpay #lil50cent #streamingdoesntpay #learnstocksinstead #wealthoverfame #edjewcation #jewjew
Which then prompted LBW to try and hit back with his own cash in a shot. But he clearly doesn’t have all that much:
Sykes then put an end to it with this crushing blow:
