Cardi B just realized that Donald Glover and Childish Gambino are the same person!
The rapper let slip on Twitter that she thought Glover and Gambino were two different people. Upon realizing her mistake, Cardi quickly took down the tweet.
Artist of the moment Cardi B just let slip that she thought Donald Glover and his on-stage music persona Childish Gambino were two different people, NME reports.
In a now-deleted tweet, (no points for guessing why it's now deleted!) the Bodak Yellow rapper wrote: "It’s amazing how Donald Glover and Childish Gambino look soo much alike. I think they secretly the same person!!! Soo dope!!’.
Three minutes later, she tweeted: ‘Wait, I’m confuse now?!’.
If, before today, you were positive that Cardi B understood that Donald Glover and Childish Gambino are the same person, then you might want to take a seat... pic.twitter.com/TsxsqrSwcV— Chris Murphy (@christress) May 25, 2018
As some fans would be familiar, Cardi does have a knack of trolling fans online. But the fact that she took down her tweet this time seems to suggest that it was an honest-to-God mistake on her part. Just for the record, Donald Glover is indeed the same person (at least in physical form) as Childish Gambino, who recently gave us a very politically charged music video for 'This Is America'.
Glover also starred as Lando Calrissian in the new Star Wars spin-off 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' and it should only be a matter of time before Cardi figures out that Lando is also Donald Glover!
Surprisingly though, it looks like Cardi is not the only one who is guilty of the mix-up. After Cardi's tweet caused quite a stir, many Twitter users have now come forward to share their moments of realization. Check out some of the reactions below.
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— Noah Gray? ✪ (@Noahhead) May 25, 2018
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— AmBae (@__AMBERcrombie) May 23, 2018

When I was really young, about 3, I thought Billy Dee Williams was the most talented man alive having played Lando & being Ray Parker Jr doing Ghostbusters, which I was later sad to learn wasn't the case. My kids get @donaldglover and Childish Gambino as the same person though.— Jason Ward (@MakingStarWars) February 8, 2018
In our list of 12 artists with the most bizarre backstories, we'd revealed how Donald Glover came to adopt his stage name. The story goes that Glover got his name from a random Wu Tang Clan name generator! In his own words: "We were all hanging out, chilling and drinking and then we were like, 'oh, Wu-Tang name generator, let’s put our name in.' And we’re putting them all in, and they’re all funny and stuff, and then mine came up and I was like, ‘you guys, it’s not funny anymore. This is something big.’ I just really liked it.”
