Last night Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, and he devoted his monologue to letting the audience know he auditioned for the iconic sketch show- twice- only to be rejected- twice. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
There's a lot going on in the background, but very much in the foreground is the moment Glover carefully handles a rifle like it's porcelain, steps in front of and shoots down a gospel choir, appearing to reference the 2015 Emanuel AME massacre in downtown Charleston.
The video is certainly intriguing and reflects upon what America seems to be experiencing in increased amounts in recent years such as police brutality, gun violence and the influence pop culture has on society. The accompanying music video for the more serious "This Is America" dropped online shortly before the episode aired.

Driefontein produced 482,000 ounces of gold in 2017, accounting for about a third of Sibanye's output of the metal. It called for "more serious intervention" to take place at Sibanye Stillwater operations in South Africa.
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
One can also make the assumption that Glover's character is being chased because he murdered 11 people over the course of the video.

While some may call him a triple threat - as an actor, writer and singer - he considers himself "just a threat". After being introduced by Zoe Kravitz, who casually held a red cup before she joined the party on stage, Childish debuted a new song, "Saturday".
