*After news broke that Donald Glover and his brother Stephen Glover left their roles on FX’s animated “Deadpool” TV series over creative differences, Stephen has now revealed that the “last straw” was their planned episode about Taylor Swift.
The Wrap reported Sunday that the episode was not well received, and the entire project was then taken out of the brothers’ hands.
“There really was a Taylor Swift episode. It was HILARIOUS. And it definitely was the last straw lol,” Stephen wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “Our show wasn’t too black. It wasn’t really that black at all. But we definitely wanted to give ‘Rick and Morty’ a run for their money and I think we would have. Proud of the gang.”
Stephen’s tweet follows a series of since-deleted tweets from Donald revealing that he wasn’t “too busy to work on Deadpool,” as some had suggested. He then proceeded to tweet out page after page of the show’s script, which finds the Deadpool character wondering aloud why his animated series got scrapped.
