Donald Glover appears to be part of the Yang Gang.
The entertainer is jointly holding a fundraiser in support of Andrew Yang for president. He shared information on Instagram about a pop-up event he is hosting in partnership with Yang’s campaign.
The “46 Campaign” announcement didn’t contain a lot of details, however Glover, who goes by the rap name Childish Gambino, did write that there would be a limited supply of collaborative merchandise and that all proceeds would go to Yang’s campaign. Glover also said he wouldn’t be performing during the event.
“The Donald Glover x Andrew Yang pop-up will go down at noon Thursday at 507 N. Fairfax Ave. in Los Angeles,” according to information on the flyer.
Later Thursday evening Yang will hit the Democratic primary debate stage at LA’s Loyola Marymount University, along with former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Tom Steyer, a billionaire businessowner.
Yang, 44 and an entrepreneur, shared Glover’s announcement on Twitter: “Thank you @donaldglover – you see and create the future,” and included an emoji of praying hands and a rocket taking off.

The Yang Gang seemed thrilled.
“Exciting news. One of my favorite actors/musicians supporting my favorite candidate,” wrote Violaceous Vibes on Twitter.
“last time donald glover endorsed something it was migos’ song ‘bad and boujee’ and it went #1 overnight. Let’s hope the same happens here,” weighed in @melephunk.
Showing Yang has crossover appeal, a Republican Trump supporter said he is here for Glover and Yang.
“Why is all this cool stuff going on in Los Angeles AFTER I move away? @AndrewYang is going to be our next president. Still appreciate @realDonaldTrump. But this was before Andrew. @DNC do not mess this up. If Yang is not the nominee, @GOP takes it again.” Wrote @Trumper4Yang
Glover’s support of Yang mirrors support from other celebrities and business owners who have backed him, including comedian, Dave Chappelle, actors Nicolas Cage and Noah Centineo, Weezer star Rivers Cuomo, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and investor Sam Altman.
