Cardi B Just Figured Out Donald Glover And Childish Gambino Are The Same Person
"Wait I’m confuse now?!"
There have been a few cases of mistaken identity floating around the internet at the moment.
There are the people only now just figuring out YouTuber Tyler Oakley didn't get his start in the Stuart Little movies, or there are the writers of this very article who thought Sarah Paulson played Miss Honey in Matilda up until like four years ago (sorry Embeth Davidtz!).
And yes, most of these mistakes are foolish and embarrassing, so it doesn't help when they're shared on Twitter. Case in point: Cardi B's recent discovery.
In a now-deleted tweet, Cardi wrote about two incredible, talented and prolific stars: rapper Childish Gambino and actor, writer and all-around star Donald Glover.
Soon after, she followed that tweet up with the now iconic:
The only problem with Cardi thinking Gambino and Glover are "secretly the same person" is... that... they are. They're literally the same person.
Gambino, Glover's rap alter ego, is a name he famously discovered while at a party using a Wu-Tang Name Generator. (We used it and got Midnight Specialist which... is kinda cool tbh.)
Glover told Jimmy Fallon in 2011, "We were all hanging out, chilling and drinking and then we were like, 'Oh, Wu-Tang name generator, let's put our name in'".
"And we're putting them all in, and they're all funny and stuff, and then mine came up and I was like, 'You guys, it's not funny anymore. This is something big.' I just really liked it."
Still, it seems like all the recent press Glover and Gambino have been getting -- considering the former is still seeing major success with his show Atlanta as well as starring in the recently released Solo, while the latter's "This Is America" was one of the most talked about music videos of the year so far -- many people are just discovering that they're the same dude.
Still, we're kind of obsessed with this conspiracy theory, and we might try and see how many people we can convince that it's the truth.
You can catch Childish Gambino's best mate Donald Glover in Solo in cinemas now.
