Donald Glover’s interview with Donald Glover has fans blowing up Twitter for all the wrong reasons. “You don’t think this is contrived?” Glover asked himself at the start. “I don’t think it’s more contrived than any other interview,” he replied. However, many begged to differ and questioned the point of the “sit-down” in the first place.

“I try to think of editorial from all angles — executive level, impact level, story level, etc. — but I quite literally don’t understand the point of this,” editor-in-chief Ivie Ani commented. “Donald Glover interviewing himself is a great example of how the skills of profilers/critics/interviewers are so undervalued,” Vulture and New York Magazine critic Angela Bastien opined.

One of the subjects Glover came under fire for was his self-discussion about being “afraid” of Black women. “I feel like you’re using Black women to question my Blackness,” Glover declared. “For chaos reasons, now I need a Black woman to interview Donald Glover since he said he’s not afraid of us,” writer Najma Sharif tweeted. But it’s not the first time the BAME community has slammed the actor. Childish Gambino’s fanbase was primarily white when he first started out. Glover subsequently faced criticism for not being “Black enough” — he has even been called an “Oreo.” He Tells Stories asked Glover why Black hip-hop fans thought he wasn’t cool enough. “Drake wears gold chains,” Glover said. “I could never pull off wearing chains. J. Cole’s been to jail. I haven’t.”
