Donald Glover Included a #WhoBitBeyonce Joke in His Now-Canceled Deadpool Show
At one point in the script, Deadpool reads news on his phone and says, "Sanaa Lathan bit Beyoncé's face!"
Even Donald Glover can’t help but get in on the #WhoBitBeyoncé drama.
The actor shared on Twitter that his now-canceled adult comedy series about Deadpool was set to feature a joke about the singer. Glover posted several pages from the script for the final episode, which seamlessly referenced the now viral story.
At one point in the script, Deadpool reads news on his phone and says, “Sanaa Lathan bit Beyoncé’s face!”
“Wait,” he then says. “Oh thank God. It was Jennifer Lawrence. I already hate her. It’s fine.”
Last year, FX Networks announced plans for a FXX animated adult comedy series about Deadpool, co-created by the Atlanta actor and his brother Stephen Glover.
But over the weekend, the nework said the show was no longer moving forward. “Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways.”
The Internet has been ablaze trying to get to the bottom of the #WhoBitBeyonce mystery ever since Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish first recounted watching the aftermath of the alleged bite go down.
“There was this actress there that’s just, like, doing the mostest,” Haddish, 38, said in an interview with GQ published Monday, refusing to name the Queen Bey’s attacker. “She bit Beyoncé in the face.”
“Beyoncé stormed away…went up to JAY-Z, and was like, ‘JAY! Come here! This bitch—’ and snatched him,” Haddish recalled. “They went to the back of the room. I was like, ‘What just happened?’ And Beyoncé’s friend walked up and was like, ‘Can you believe this bitch just bit Beyoncé?’ ”
Haddish said she jumped to defend Beyoncé, telling the star her attacker was “gonna get her ass beat tonight.’ ” But Beyoncé kept a cool head. “She was like, ‘Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The bitch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.’ ”
Yvette Noel-Schure, Beyoncé’s representative, responded to the claim by telling GQ, “I absolutely cannot comment on any of this, as I have no knowledge.”
Since then, a slew of suspects have risen to the top including Lena Dunham, Sara Foster, and Love & Basketball star Sanaa Lathan — though they have all denied.
Ryan Murphy even joked that he would make the controversy the center of the next season of American Crime Story, asking fans on Instagram “Who Should Play Beyoncé?”
