Donald Glover Calls Out Marvel For ‘Racism’ & Makes #WhoBitBeyonc├â┬⌐ References In The Meta Script For His Defunct Deadpool Series!

no title

Donald Glover had lots to ponder after it was announced over the weekend that he would no longer be involved with the animated Deadpool series for FX.

Like all creative geniuses, he took out his frustrations with art. And by “art,” we mean an exceptionally meta script for the now defunct project in which Deadpool literally wonders why his animated series got scrapped.

The Atlanta star and his brother Stephen Glover were going write, executive produce, and be showrunners on the animated series about the raunchy anti-hero, but were let go by Marvel Television “due to creative differences.”

But in Glover’s 15-page script — which he took to Twitter to share on Tuesday — Deadpool wonders if “racism” had anything to do with the series getting scrapped. The anti-hero asks the world’s last male northern white rhino, Sudan, in the script:

“Do you think they canceled the show because of racism?! Yeah, all the writers were black. The references were pretty black, too. I heard they went over lunch budget ordering Jamaican food at least once a week.”

The episode finds Deadpool in Africa trying to protect Sudan, who died a few days ago IRL — but that’s not the only current event Glover crammed into the script.
