Bow Wow Says He Would Turn Down Role In Empire Because It Stereotypes Black People

If you are one of the three Bow Wow fans in the world, hoping to see him on future seasons of 'Empire', we are sorry to inform you, it will not happen!

The rapper turned actor believes the show stereotypes black people and it's something he doesn't want to be apart of. 

“When we were still filming Cyber episodes, Empire‘s first episode premiered. Fans were saying, ‘Man, you should have been on the show.’ But we all don’t rap or play basketball. We can do so many things. There are young African-Americans who are intelligent enough to work at the #FBI. That’s what’s so bright. Hopefully, I can help start a new wave of young black actors who don’t want to stereotype themselves."
