Donald Glover Fans Have Hijacked A Popular Donald Trump SubReddit
Donald Glover is currently riding a wave of support after releasing his controversial and thought-provoking single “This Is America.” The song was ushered in on the back of an equally controversial and stunning music video that showcases the current socio-political climate in America. Now, fans of the multi-talented singer, actor, and writer are taking over Trump-focused subReddits.
The Trump fan page, /r/thedonald, was filled on Tuesday with several pages features Glover-inspired stories.
The subReddit, which features 16,817 followers, now looks like a Donald Glover fan page more than a Donald Trump supporting forum.

The masterful trolling of Glover fans includes a title that reads, “Proof the Donald colluded with Palestine,” followed by a picture of Glover with his “Community” co-star Danny Pudi, who played Palestinian-American character Abed Nadir on the comedy series.
Other Reddit trolls have posted non-Trump related content but Glover, who also goes by his music name, Childish Gambino, is certainly the focal point.
The posts could be an unintended publicity stunt as Glover plays Lando Calrissian in the upcoming “Star Wars” spin-off “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which opens on Friday.
His first number one single, the take over of a Donald Trump subReddit, the amazingly clever TV series, “Atlanta,” it looks like Glover is living in his own renaissance moment.
