Actor Donald Glover showed up to the Emmys Monday night in full “whiteface” makeup and attire, something the vast majority of brain dead liberals in America will no doubt claim was some sort of art performance piece designed to raise awareness of some sort of race related issue.
In actuality, it was based off a character Glover plays on his show “Atlanta,” for which he received five Emmy nominations. The character, Teddy Perkins is a bizarre look alike of Michael Jackson and is basically all the stuff your nightmares are made of.
Seriously, folks. Once you see this, it’s burned into your retinas for life.
Wearing a wig and white makeup, Glover appeared as Perkins once again on Monday on the front row at the Emmys, where Glover was nominated for five awards.
Winner of the Best Actor award in a comedy series, Bill Hader, can be seen hugging Perkins before heading on stage. Backstage, Hader said, “I don’t know who that was I hugged but it was the guy from ‘Atlanta,’ he showed up,” Variety reports.

Glover is certainly no stranger to controversy, especially on race relations. Earlier this year, his hip-hop single “This Is America,” sung by his alter-ego Childish Gambino, won social justice activists’ hearts everywhere through its endorsement of the Black Lives Matter movement and its portrayal of America as a dangerous place for black people.
As for his portrayal of Teddy Perkins, the talented actor manages to be eerie, humorous, and discomforting all at once.
Here’s a sample of his portrayal of the Perkins character on the show:
It’s extremely creepy and uncomfortable, isn’t it?
Whether you agree with his politics or not, Glover is definitely one of the most talented individuals in Hollywood. It’ll be interesting to see where his career takes him from here.
On the flip side of this, you have to wonder how this would go over if the races were reversed? Probably not very well. Yet, here we see it being done on white folks like that’s somehow more acceptable. It’s a double standard.
