Donald Glover Clears the Air

Donald Glover

Community star Donald Glover has opened up about what led to his decision to post a series of disturbing Instagram confessions Monday. His long list of dark admissions included: "I'm afraid my parents won't live long enough to see my kids," "I'm afraid people hate who I really am," "I'm afraid people think I hate my race," "I'm afraid people think I hate women," and "I'm scared I'll never grow out of bro rape." (The reference to "bro rape" refers to an early sketch by Glover's comedy troupe, Derrick Comedy.) They were handwritten on Marriott hotel stationery.

On Wednesday, Glover told People what spurred the posts. "That night, we had a show, and then afterwards, I had this moment of feeling like, 'What's the point? Why am I even here?' " Glover said. "I just wanted to write down my feelings. I definitely was just expressing myself."

He emphasized that he is not suffering from depression. "I was just tired of telling people I was tired. It felt like every day someone would ask, 'What's wrong. Are you OK?' " says Glover. "And I would say, 'I'm tired, I'm tired.' I didn't want to do that anymore. I guess sometimes not telling the truth is just as bad as telling a lie."
