Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino returned to Twitter on Tuesday, May 11, and said that "people are afraid of getting cancelled" and hence they are delivering "boring stuff." As soon as Glover posted the series of tweets on social media, the internet trolled him for saying that he needs to learn how to make a "thread", instead of posting so many tweets.

Glover tweeted, "saw people on here havin a discussion about how tired they were of reviewing boring stuff (tv & film)." He again tweeted: "we're getting boring stuff and not even experimental mistakes(?) because people are afraid of getting cancelled." And he summed up with a third one saying: "so they feel like they can only experiment w/ aesthetic. (also because some of em know theyre not that good)."

As soon as his tweets came to light, people started slamming him. One person said, "??? art is made to be criticized and critiqued if we didn’t have that system we would literally get the same shit over and over again public opinion does not equal cancel culture YOU out of all creatives should know that can you count how many times you have been cancelled?" Music critic Dolan Dark clarified, "(He's talking about movies/tv shows being cancelled but everyone's brains are so poisoned by twitter they think he's talking about cancel culture and getting mad)."



 



 

As Glover posted a series of tweets, instead of one thread, some people made fun of that. One person said, "Donald Glover not knowing how to make a thread on here got me dyin." Writer Aisha Harris said, "I know Donald Glover tweets about as often as Haley’s Comet, but will someone please teach him how to thread."



 



 

One person said, "pretty sure donald glover is too old to understand how to thread his tweets and is complaining about risk taking/cancel culture as it applies to getting shows on the air and whatnot." Surprised by the latest trend, another one said, "Donald Glover trending off the strength of not knowing what a thread is. Levels."



 



 

Defending him, one person said, "Twitter is such a toxic cesspool that people are jumping to conclusions about Donald Glover over one tweet and not considering that maybe the guy who barely uses Twitter forgot to make a thread."
