Nightline’s tribute to Bow Wow
Wed, 19 Sep 2012 11:01p.m.
Last night Nightline ran a story about rapper Bow Wow snubbing a powhiri in his honour at Auckland Airport.
Bow Wow cancelled our scheduled interview and instead took to social media to vent his anger.
In the interests of balanced reporting here is his side of the story directly from his Facebook page.
Watch the video for the full story.

Bow Wow knows how to make money, Wiki says he has about 20 Million US. I would speak funny to earn that amount.

Bow Wow, it looks like you’ve spilled your milksop on your keyboard. If you don’t eat it all, you won’t be getting another Rusk until supper!

I'm so ashamed of this. Bow wow wasn't to know he was being rude (if that's what you call it) you guys missed the part about him just wanting to check in with his mother and 1 year old child. Hes a young african american who came all this was to give his fans what they deserve and he is now the bad guy for not realizing the powhiri was for him? So every time someone wants to do a Haka we all just drop what we are doing and pay attention? I'm maori myself but this is stupid. Why are you making people hate us? Jenny Suo, I shake my head

What a fantastic command of the english language he has. More JarJar Binks than the Yoda he's trying to be

Why is Bob Wow babbling on about the tv 3 reporter. Waz it her fault he was blattenly rude when he came out of customs and forgot where he landed!!!!! Shows he did not read up on protocols of NZ. Then he has a cheek to ask the small group (after they all got changed out of their kapa haka outfits) to perform when he was over his tantrum? Please we are a small country but not all of us BOW and Wow to celebrities.
