The rapper recently returned to Twitter and sparked controversy when he came out in support of Donald Trump.
In A Kanye Place, Glover parodied recent horror film hit A Quiet Place. The sketch borrowed the idea of being taken by monsters if they hear you, but the actor and musician’s group of friends are unable to keep quiet when they see West’s tweets.
After Glover sees West has dropped a new track in ‘Lift Yourself’, SNL cast member Aidy Bryant says: “We can’t take the risk of listening to it, two people just got taken by monsters.” When Glover replies, “I’ve got earbuds”, she tells him to “cue it up, bitch”. Watch the sketch above.

West has since responded to the parody, sharing a video of it on his Twitter page. It appears that he approved of it, as he captioned the post with three laughing emojis and three fire emojis.
Glover was the guest host on this week’s SNL, and also served as the musical guest too. In another sketch on the show, he played one of rap group Friendos, based on Migos, who take a therapy session. A$AP Rocky also guest starred in the sketch.
During SNL, Glover also released his new single under his Childish Gambino moniker, called ‘This Is America’. The video for the track was directed by Hiro Murai, who has previously worked with the star on his award-winning show Atlanta.
