After Bow Wow's tweeted drunk driving incident on New Year's Eve, it was about time @bowwow614 got some adult supervision. So when Atlanta boutique owner and stage mom @MsTCaldwell joined, it seemed like a good idea: Nothing like a mother's tsk to make a wayward rapper clean up his act. But then, she actually said stuff. Embarrassing mom stuff. Like this:
And gross MILF stuff, like this*:
And then, the @-tweets. Humiliating @-tweets, as though @Ciara and @Nelly_MO were her friends instead of his. @SolangeKnowles, calling her "sweetie." @KimKardashian, asking for weight loss tips. @iamdiddy, @wyclef, @barondavis, @therealtaraji. It was all too much for Bow to bear. He began a campaign to expel his mother from Twitter.
But then—the horror!—his fans rallied around her instead of him:
Finally, he resorted to threats.
But Teresa Caldwell would not be muzzled. She smacked her son down the way only a mama can: with shame, and the Lord's name.
As fans rallied around Ms. Caldwell, Mr. Wow—chagrined, ashamed, emasculated—gave in. He deleted the anti-mom tweets from his account, and Teresa stayed to humiliate another day.
Moral of the story: Moms on Twitter will ruin your fun, and there's nothing you can do about it. This is the way trendy websites end: Not with a bang, but a mother.
