    NEWSLETTERS

    Just when you thought Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter provided more benefits than burdens for stars, Bow Wow found himself in quite the snafu this week.

    The rapper turned reality star shared a post of a private jet with the caption, "Travel day. NYC press run for Growing Up Hip Hop. Lets gooo. I promise to bring yall the hottest show EVER."

    Flashy? Sure. Authentic? Not so fast.

    A Snapchat user discovered that Bow Wow, also known as Shad Moss, was actually on his flight to New York City. And no, it wasn't a private plane. The receipts went viral and now the Internet can't stop trolling him.

    At least Bow Wow is having a sense of humor about it. Thursday morning posting a response on Instagram. 

    But Bow Wow isn't the only celebrity to suffer a serious social media faux pas. 

    Stars Who Hate Social Media

    Vicki Gunvalson: The "Real Housewives of Orange County" star snapped a quick picture of her new Beats by Dre headphones from Bravo. "Thank you #bravotv for my Christmas present, love these for all my travelling. #happyholidays, #andycohen, #lovegettingpresents," she captioned the now-deleted Instagram. What she didn't realize at the time was that you could see her reflection off the box and therefore she was also visible in the photo--and she just so happened to take the picture while she was naked. 

    Alison Pill: The newsroom may have had a field day when the actress accidentally tweeted a topless photo of herself laying on a bed. Pill quickly deleted the pic , but not before owning up to her mistake. "Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet... Apologies," the actress wrote.

    Stars Discovered on Social Media

    Tina Knowles: Not everyone can keep up with the Jenners. After Kris Jenner attended "The Wearable Art Gala," Beyonce and Solange Knowles' mom decided to post a photo of the famous momager's red carpet look. The only trouble was she didn't get the spelling correctly the first time. "Chris Kardashian at The Wearable Art Gala," Tina wrote online before catching her mistake. 

    Think Before You Tweet: Celebs' Controversial Twitter Posts

    Rita Ora: On 2014's Halloween night, Ora took to Twitter with a mission for her fans: She would drop a new song if her tweet got 100,000 retweets. When she didn't come close to reaching her goal, "The Voice U.K." coach claimed that she was hacked. "By the way my Twitter got hacked somebody is threatening to release new music I've worked really hard on," she wrote. "Nothing comes out until I'm ready." Coincidence or something more?
