Donald Glover shocked Community fans this summer when he announced that he'll be departing the NBC sitcom after just five Season 5 episodes.
And now the actor has surprised viewers once again, taking to Instagram to explain his decision to leave the series and shooting down talk that it was over a desire to pursue a rapping career.
“I don’t wanna rap. I wanted to be on my own," Glover wrote. "I’ve been sick this year. I’ve seen a bunch of people die this year. This is my first time I’ve felt helpless… Kept looking for something to be in with. Follow someone’s blueprint. But you have to be on your own.”
