Community star Donald Glover revealed some of his fears and his reasons for leaving the NBC comedy in a number of personal Instagram posts Monday.
Written on Marriott Hotel stationary, the actor confessed that he is afraid of the future and that he feels like he is “letting everyone down.”
“I’m afraid people hate who I really am,” he wrote. “I’m afraid I hate who I really am.”
The 30-year-old also said he was afraid Community creator Dan Harmon hates him. He also said he didn’t leave the show to rap — he performs under the stage name Childish Gambino — and that he wanted to be on his own. His next album, Because the Internet, is scheduled to be released in late December, but Glover said his label was hesitant about the timing.
“The label doesn’t want me to release in December cause it’s not a holiday record and I’m not a big artist,” he wrote. “I started the record last Christmas. Christmas always made me feel lonely, but it helped me restart the new year.”
Donald Glover will appear in five of Community‘s 13 episodes this season. Harmon said of his departure, “A train of pleasure followed by a caboose of pain.”
Another one of Glover’s fears was that his FX comedy, Atlanta, would fail. The series, which Glover will executive produce and write, as well as star in, follows the music scene in the city. Although other networks were interested in the series, Glover chose FX because they were willing to work around his touring schedule.
Glover will also be starring alongside American Horror Story: Coven star Evan Peters in the David Gelb horror film Reawakening. The pair join Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass as research students who discover the secret to bringing people back from the dead.
