People Are Just Learning That Donald Glover And Childish Gambino Are The Same Talented Man
And it's all thanks to Cardi B.
You might know Donald Glover from his work on Atlanta and Community, or his role as Lando Calrissian in the new Star Wars film, Solo. You might also know him from his standup comedy! What an accomplished and busy artist.
Separately, you might know the singer and rapper Childish Gambino from his hit albums, or his latest genius video ‘This is America’. Another talented and proactive man.
But… what if I told you they were THE SAME VERY CLEVER MAN? That Donald Glover… is Childish Gambino???? What?
There’s a very good chance that you already know this, but other people have been a little slow on the uptake. Many people would have kept their confusion to themselves too, except for the fact that rapper Cardi B accidentally put her foot in it on Twitter, spurring a spree of revelations.
“It’s amazing how Donald Glover & Childish Gambino look soo much alike. Think they secretly the same person!!! Too dope!!” she tweeted. It kinda sounds like she’s making a joke, but then a few minutes later she added another tweet:
“Wait, I’m confuse now.”
She then deleted the tweets, leading to the theory that she truly was confuse.

But, regardless of whether or not Cardi B was making an honest mistake or a funny gag, people were spurred on to share their own Donald Glover truths.
everyone remembers where they were when michael jackson died, and everyone remembers where they were when they first found out that donald glover and childish gambino are the same person

I was individually a huge fan of Community, loved "Awaken, My Love!" and particularly 'Redbone' – and was completely blown away by 'This is America' the video.
and slowly slowly my mind is realising this is all the same person.

I’m at work minding my business & my coworker asks me if I know Donald Glover. I said yes & he proceeds to ask doesn’t he look like Childish Gambino. I thought he was kidding, but he really didn’t know they were the same person lmao

The movie hasn't started yet but there's no way any part of Solo is going to be better than the guy LOSING HIS MIND outside the theater realizing Childish Gambino and Donald Glover are the same person

Vote now, do you think Donald Glover and Childish Gambino are the same person, or just a Scooby Doo style prank?
