Childish Gambino is a musician. Donald Glover is an actor, writer, and comedian. If you’re one of the many people who thinks they look alike, you’re right. If you think it’s because they’re the same person, you’re also right.
Just recently, people have started to put together that Donald Glover and Childish Gambino are the same person, and they’ve been voicing this realization on social media.

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

This not-so-new news comes just days after Cardi B wrote about having the epiphany on Twitter. The rap artist, in a now-deleted tweet, wrote that Donald Glover and Childish Gambino look “soo much alike!” on Saturday. “I think they’re secretly the same person,” she added. Oh, how right she is!
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

And Cardi was not, in any way, alone. One person commented on Twitter, “I was today years old when I found out Childish Gambino and Donald Glover were the same person.”
I was today years old when I found out people didn’t know Donald Glover and Childish Gambino were the same person.

Others, however, seemed to think that anyone who wasn’t aware of this fact is, well, way too behind the times.
