Cardi B thought Childish Gambino and Donald Glover were two different people

'I think they secretly the same person.'

Cardi B has let slip that she thought Donald Glover and his musical moniker Childish Gambino were two different people.

In a now-deleted tweet, the ‘Invasion of Privacy‘ rapper wrote: ‘It’s amazing how Donald Glover and Childish Gambino look soo much alike. I think they secretly the same person!!! Soo dope!!’.

Three minutes later, she tweeted: ‘Wait, I’m confuse now’.


Cardi is well known for her online trolling, but the fact she deleted her initial tweet suggests she genuinely didn’t realise they were the same person.

However, she’s not the only one slow on the uptake – Twitter users have been sharing their moments of realisation.


One user thought they’d throw a conspiracy theory into the mix:

Meanwhile, Cardi recently defended collaborator Rita Ora for her single, ‘Girls’, a track they both performed with Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha.

The song was labelled ‘problematic’ for the queer community as it suggests girls only kiss other girls when they’re drunk.

It faced backlash from the LGBTQ+ community, with Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani calling it ‘downright tone-deaf’.

Rita Ora responded to criticism, saying the track was: ‘written to represent my truth and is an accurate account of a very real and honest experience in my life. I have had romantic relationships with women and men throughout my life and this is my personal journey.’

Charli XCX recently broke her silence on the uproar, accusing critics of outing Ora and questioning why her story is less valid than other bisexual people.

Wanting to move on from the incident in a positive way, she said:  “I just really want to learn from this situation…we can all learn from this conversation.”
