Why Has Childish Gambino Disappeared From Social Media?

Why Has Childish Gambino Disappeared From Social Media? Seriously, though. What happened to Childish Gambino? Since Dec. 10 both his Twitter and Instagram accounts have been stripped—all of their content erased and profile photos replaced with black boxes. Even his screenplay for Because the Internet and the page for STNMTN/Kauai have been replaced by black screens.

It’s interesting timing because his FX pilot for Atlanta was just announced yesterday. You’d think he’d want to promote the show now and show FX the army of fans he has ready to ride or die for him.

So why is Gambino gone?

It could be to protest the recent grand jury decisions not to indict the police officers who killed Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Just days before Gambino disappeared a subreddit dedicated to him made a similar move, although content is still being posted. His manager, Famuel Rothstein, has also replaced his Twitter profile pic with a photo from the United Blackout movement.
