Desus & Mero Proclaim That Bow Wow Is Still Banned with Showtime Move

Desus & Mero may be headed to a new network for a revamped show, but Bow Wow is still grounded after his fake private jet debacle that inspired the #BowWowChallenge.

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero were in NYC promoting their upcoming show and deal with Showtime, and they gave some insight on the big things to expect. The two hosts are really excited about getting a bigger budget and more time to be creative.

As for what will not be changing — Bow Wow’s ban is still in full effect! The rapper/actor literally became a meme last year when he was caught flying commercial … after posting a photo on his Instagram and making it appear he was flying private.

Bow Wow had actually appeared on Desus & Mero on the same day he was caught flexing for the gram, but the hosts didn’t get a chance to grill him on it, instead they benched him from any future appearances for the deception.

The rapper later tried to explain that he was merely re-posting a photo that he liked, but the damage had already been done.

Sorry Bow Wow, you’re not ready for the premium channels.
