One of the most critically acclaimed disturbing hours of television this year was FX‘s Atlanta‘s “Teddy Perkins” episode. In it, my NYU roommate Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino portrayed a conflicted white-faced character named “Teddy Perkins.”
Given that Donald played “Perkins,” it came as a shock to viewers that the character appeared to be seated in the audience during the broadcast of last night’s Emmys. Initially, viewers online assumed Donald was in the make-up again until they both were seen together.
No word yet as to which actor was in the Perkins make-up, but it sure made for a trippy moment!
