Many moons ago, Ol’ Dirty Bastard uttered the words, “Wu-Tang is for the children.” Little did he know, more than a decade later, his proclamation would become somewhat manifest when one couple decided to trick their friends into believing they had named their children Raekwon and Ghostface. They managed to trick Raekwon himself as well.
Sunday (a.k.a. Father’s Day), Raekwon took to Instagram to share a photo of the twin babies, along with the caption: “This is live, family named their twins Raekwon & ghostface!!! #wu4thebabies.”
The photo he shared was from father Dan Lieberman’s Twitter, on which the dad posted the note, “It’s for the children @WuTangClan @GhostfaceKillah @Raekwon.”
Gawker reports that Lieberman is telling a different story on Facebook, however. “This is just a joke, but we’ll see how far the Internet wants to carry it,” he wrote.
Somewhere, ODB is very, very disappointed.
