Well, This Is Awkward: Cardi B Just Realized Donald Glover & Childish Gambino Are The Same Person

There is no way around it, celeb mix-ups are just flat-out awkward, i.e. Victoria Beckham’s in-person mistaking of British Thandie Newton for Zoe Saldana (yikes).

In similar news, Twitter recently blew up after Cardi B tweeted her shock at the crazy resemblance between Donald Glover and Childish Gambino. She was obviously not privy to the fact that Glover and Gambino are one and the same.

Quickly realizing her mistake, Cardi shot off a follow-up tweet, admitting, “Wait, I’m confused now.” Yea, so are we, Cardi. How Cardi was unaware of Glover’s dual identity despite his uber-fame and her being his contemporary within the rap industry is pretty puzzling and undeniably more than a little awk.

Some Twitter responders have fired back at Cardi’s goof, one labeling her a “fake fan.

Now, it’s hard for me to place too much blame on Cardi (personally having undergone the same eye-opening experience in learning that Glover is Gambino a year or so prior). However, given that Glover is practically living in the spotlight after release of hit single, “This Is America,” and premiere of Star Wars spinoff, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Cardi probably should have done a five-second Google search before opening up to Twitter.

Honestly though, let’s not sweat the small stuff. No worries Cardi, but fingers crossed for no more un-comfy slipups :).
