Childish Gambino: TV, film ‘boring’ now because ‘people are afraid of getting canceled’

Actor and rapper Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, fired off a string of tweets early Tuesday suggesting cancel culture is resulting in “boring” entertainment.

“Saw people on here havin a discussion about how tired they were of reviewing boring stuff (tv & film),” the Golden Globe-winning “Atlanta” star tweeted to his 2.5 million followers in his first comment on Twitter since November.

“We’re getting boring stuff and not even experimental mistakes(?) because people are afraid of getting cancelled,” he continued. “So they feel like they can only experiment w/ aesthetic. (also because some of em know theyre not that good).”

Mr. Glover was sued last week by Florida rapper Kidd Wes for alleged copyright infringement over his 2018 song, “This Is America,” which Mr. Wes claimed sounds “glaringly similar” to his own song, “Made In America.”
