Donald Glover's Reasons For Leaving 'Community' Are Actually Kind Of Troubling

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | October 15, 2013 | Comments ()


As you no doubt know, Donald Glover will be leaving Community this season after the first five episodes. And while that’s sort of devastating news for us (NO MORE TROY AND ABED BUMPERS?!), we’re just audience members. They’re just fictional characters. We’ll get over it. I’m much more concerned (and not in a fake gossip-y way) about this note that Glover posted to his Instagram. His reasonings are vague and unfocused, and if this were a journal entry or a late night email to a friend, then it wouldn’t matter a bit. But this is something he felt was worth uploading and sharing with the general public. Who knows his motivations, emotions or thought processes? I shouldn’t guess. So I’m just going to stick with my initial reaction: Troubling.


You can see the rest here, and they all paint a rather upsetting picture.
