Childish Gambino’s Social Media Has Gone Black, But Why?
Now, why in the world would he do such a thing? He’s just announced a new comedy series on FX, Atlanta, so wouldn’t you think he’d want to promote the shit out of it now, since only the pilot has been ordered? Why black out now?
It of course could be to protest the Eric Gardner and Michael Brown non-indictment decisions made earlier this month. A subreddit recently made the same move going black, but continues to allow new content. His manager Famuel Rothstein recently took to Twitter and changed his profile pic to the #Blackout movement, and tweeted out:
twitter is sad as fuck

When you pull up the Twitter Blackout Network it seems to confirm the protest as it’s meant to promote human rights and change, most recently hyping the #MillionsMarchNYC.
Then again, this could just be a marketing ploy to get everyone talking about him even more, but that’s probably not the case, and he’s actually helping a cause.
We’ll keep you posted.
