10 Funny and Controversial Tweets from Fake Jake Owen


You really know you’ve made it in life when a restaurant names a sandwich after you.

Or when someone turns your life story into a movie.

But, you’ve really reached life’s pinnacle when someone creates a parody Twitter account in your honor. A few years ago everyone from the President of the United States to local math teachers had parody Twitter accounts tweeting away on their behalf. A lot of fake accounts have been reported or abandoned, but in Nashville, one account hangs on– Cake Bowen.

Cake Bowen, @NotJakeOwen, has a ruthless commitment to his craft, which seems to be shaming country music artists, while throwing in a couple of decent jokes every week or so.

To me, Cake Bowen is being a bit casually cruel, in the name of being honest (to borrow the words of our country’s wisest sage, Taylor Swift). Casually cruel and honest is sometimes funny and usually controversial.
