A white entrepreneur tried to mock Bow Wow for claiming to fly on a private jet and Black Twitter swiftly shut it down, leading the businessman to offer to a charity donation to clean up his mess.

Timothy Sykes is a stock trader best known for making $1.65 million at 21 by trading penny stocks. In between flaunting his wealth and lavish lifestyle on Instagram, he posed in front of a private jet to give Bow Wow, also known as Shad Moss, a lesson on how to brag.

“When you actually fly on a #privatejet, you can take a picture in front of it too, that way you don’t have to lie in interviews on how you did it on purpose to promote a TV show,” Sykes wrote on Instagram Saturday, May 13. “Unless you’re going to claim you stole my cash photo over a year ago for the show too!”

Bow Wow explained the photo op to “Ebro In The Morning” saying the method to his madness wasn’t understood.

“I’m about to have the biggest show on We TV period,” he said of the upcoming spin-off reality series of “Growing Up Hip-Hop.” “It’s a scientific method to my madness. You gotta just watch the show. Everything is for the show. You gotta just watch.”

Sykes dove into stereotypes to fuel his next blow toward Moss and insulted the “Growing Up Hip-Hop Atlanta” star’s intelligence.

“I don’t drink #hennessy or #sizzurp because I use my brain to make money as #knowledgeispower and the #stockmarket is what more people should respect, not failed musicians pretending to still be relevant…hit me up if you want to learn, I’ve taught people dumber than you before.”

Hey @shadmoss here's another lesson for you, when you actually fly on a #privatejet you can take a picture in front of it too, that way you don't have to lie in interviews on how you did it on purpose to promote a TV show…unless you're going to claim you stole my cash photo over a year ago for the show too! And you shouldn't have lied again (you have a real nasty habit with that don't you little man?) by saying the money wasn't mine because I ONLY post photos of MY money, you forget that I'm not a broke ass musician like those you hang around with, I don't drink #hennessy or #sizzurp because I use my brain to make money as #knowledgeispower and the #stockmarket is what more people should respect, not failed musicians pretending to still be relevant…hit me up if you want to learn, I've taught people dumber than you before, and as your thank you to me when I turn your financial situation around we can make a followup to your movie "Like Mike", but we'll call it "Like Tim"! #proudteacher #iloveteaching #bowwowchallenge #thegoodlife #bowwow #jewjetting #liljewjew

Online, many took issue with Sykes’ tweet.

Some thought it was racist.

Others explained only Black people can poke fun at Bow Wow.

One person was upset she had to defend Bow Wow.

Since the backlash, Sykes has challenged Bow Wow to match his $100,000 donation to a charity of the rapper’s choice.

Bow Wow hasn’t responded, leading Sykes to display the donation in cash and explaining his original Instagram post was not race-related before plugging his business.

Here's $100,000 in cash for your #dailymotivation tonight on your path to becoming my next #millionaire student as you're going to have to #studyhard and burn the midnight oil more than you want to make this kind of money, or more, in a year or two like my top students have, instead of resorting to just stealing photos of others who #workhard like @shadmoss and too many other wannabes do so the journey requires intense dedication and persistence…drink #hennessy #patron #greygoose and do whatever drugs you want too, but understand that you need every brain cell possible to achieve your goals, it's not a race thing, it's a brainpower thing and it doesn't matter what your background is or where you live, I teach online and have students in 80+ countries and will teach ANYONE as long as you're dedicated and willing to follow instructions to a T! Only like this photo, leave a comment and see more in my Instagram story if you're serious about your future! #ilovemyjob #dreamjob #dreambig #iloveteaching #dailyinspiration #stacksonstacks #itsgoodtobereal #jewspiration #thehardestworkingjewinthebusiness
