January 24, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

A satire article from titled “Bow Wow Fired From 106 & Park for Using Company Card to Pay Child Support” tricked many into thinking it was the real thing.

The rapper went on Twitter to respond to the hoax.

“@HipHopture: @YMCMB_BW clear it for fans bro !! Clear what? That ill see yall at 6pm tomorrow live on TV like i do err day whats changed?” he wrote.

He also tweeted a photo and put up an Instagram video of him at the BET studio after the fake story went viral on Thursday.

The “report” is from CreamBMP Daily–which bills itself as a satire news site–and says that Bow Wow was escorted of BET’s property after a company account discovered he was using the company’s credit card to pay for his child support.

It generated more than 110,000 “likes” on Facebook.

“I’m driving a used Honda and his daughter got a toy Bentley for Christmas,” a company executive said.

There isn’t a shred of truth in the story.

“CreamBmp.com Written by comedian CREAM. This website is comprised of satire and parody of current news and urban culture. For entertainment purposes only,” reads a disclaimer on the website. 

On Twitter, a number of people apparently believed the story was real.

“Bow wow fired for jacking money from BET to pay child support,” tweeted one.

Wrote another, “omg. I heard bow wow fired from 106&park.”

“Dang bow wow that has to be embarrassing to her fired for using your company card for child support,” said another.

The CreamBMP site tricked a number of people in the past when it published a satire saying that Michael Jordan was robbed at gunpoint for his new Air Jordan shoes in Chicago. That story also got more than 100,000 “likes” and shares on Facebook.
