#4 Did Glover Take a Break from Social Media for His Girlfriend?
Glover has been very successful with Community and Atlanta and he also has a Grammy nomination to add to his fame. As his career took off, the former 30 Rock writer went out of his way to keep his private life just that, private. He even took a hiatus from social media, deleting all his tweets from his Twitter account. While many speculated about his reasons to do so, some even wondered if it was a mark of solidarity for a human rights organization. Glover didn’t give a clear answer in any interviews, so many thought he just had enough and wanted to keep his private life out of the public eye. With the way he’s kept his girlfriend hidden, could his break from social media be for her and their child? No one knows for sure.
