    Donald Glover/Childish aka FAKE. BREAKFAST CLUB interview where he bashed white women, saying he could NEVER marry a White woman, he’s too ethnic……Turns around 2 years later and marry’s a white woman. HE ACTS a little suspect to me……………..in a few years he will do a cover for the ADVOCATE coming out as “bisexual”. HES FAKE. 100% not living his Truth. Soft as Tissue

      I wouldn’t be surprised.

      But I am glad this show got renewed. Season 2 was by turns sublime, exceptional, cerebral, hood, and weird at times, a perfect expression of his artistry. The barber episode is MY story. I could have written that isht myself — and then some. The FUBU episode hit so close to home for so many black kids.

      I agree China but I would like to add that a few years ago he did an interview where he claimed he had gay experiences with another man before too. Men like that are down with whatever so he is already bi in my opinion just like John Legend. Closeted gay/bi.
