*While Jamie Foxx makes headlines about how thankful he is that Oprah Winfrey saved his career, he’s also trending because of one usuer’s “disrespectful” tweet.
Online hysterics erupted when a Twitter user posted a question comparing Foxx’s talent to that of musician/actor Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino.
“Between these two, Who’s the most multi-talented?,” the user captioned a photo of Jamie and Donald (see below):
