Bow Wow has no respect for his elders. The pint-sized former rapper is facing backlash online after body-shaming Wendy Williams, who suffers from a disfiguring medical disorder.
It all started last week when Williams, 55, called out the ‘Lottery Ticket’ star during the “Hot Topics” segment of her popular daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. During the feature, Wendy slammed the rapper for being “distasteful”, when he changed the lyrics of his song “Like U,” which he originally recorded with ex-girlfriend Ciara, to say: “I had this b–ch first. You know that, right?”
Following Wendy’s comments, the 32-year-old – real name Shad Gregory Moss – retaliated by posting a snap of Williams in a bikini on Twitter, writing in the caption: “They say its a hot girl summer.” He ended the post with laughing and sick face emojis, as well as a hazard sign.

Outraged fans were quick to jump to Williams’ defense. One wrote, “You need to put ‘Lil’ back in front of your name because clearly, you’re still a child,” referring to his former moniker Lil’ Bow Wow.
Another user wrote, “You literally have a daughter… body shaming aint the move,” while singer Ari Lennox tweeted, “You’re disgusting”
Other Twitter users verbally abused him, poking fun at his height and referencing an incident where he allegedly photoshopped abs onto a shirtless picture.
But not everyone was mad at Bow Wow.
Fellow washed up rapper 50 Cent, shared the image of Wendy on his Instagram page, after telling HollywoodLife.com: “She said things about me consistently over the years… I don’t like her.”
Fiddy captioned the post: “Time to hit the beach ..LOL You ain’t work out in 20 years, so what!”
Wendy recently revealed she was diagnosed with lymphedema which causes irreversible swelling in her legs.
