Donald Glover Is Purposely Avoiding 'This Is America' Comments

Donald Glover Talks About When He Told His Dad He Was Lando

Glover admitted to Kimmel that's he's avoided the social media platform for over a week now, logging off right before he dropped his "This Is America" video and hosted SNL. "Something people could play on Fourth of July".

Audiences will get to see Donald play Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story when the film debuts later this month (May18), and he told US late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel that he instantly knew he should play Han's old pal.

"Some friends have sent a couple [pieces], but for real, I haven't been on the Internet since [before hosting last week's Saturday Night Live]", the 34-year-old entertainer told Jimmy. It's bad for me. "And to his credit - and I appreciate it - he was like, 'I don't like your odds".I just really wanted to be it, because that was my first toy and I just really wanted to be that character". "He was proud. Then I went and got a large cheese pizza and then went home and watched Empire Strikes Back". "That baby's not even that cute!'" The imagery in the video reflects many current topics which affect the black community in the United States, including gun violence and police brutality.

NBC Instantly Mocked After It Releases Internal Investigation Report on Lauer
Numerous NBC staffers, both on and off the record, have said that " everyone knew " about Matt Lauer's "sexual harassment lair". After eating, Lauer suggested that they meet in his dressing room and that's where the first sexual encounter occurred.

But there's little rest for Glover in this business. Sure, he may have gifted fans a hilarious sketch mocking Kanye West on Saturday Night Live, impressed critics with a second season of Atlanta that somehow seemed to outperform the first, and been praised as one of the best things about the upcoming Star Wars origin flick, but there's one thing Glover just can't handle and that's criticism, especially if it comes from Twitter.

Donald's father nurtured his love of Star Wars - and his dad was the first person he told about his role in the film, he explained, adding, "I called my dad first and told him, that was like a big moment. That was it. It was like research". The jack-of-many-trades visited the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! .
