Donald Glover‘s “This Is America” video has been the topic of discussion within the music industry since it was dropped this past Sunday. There have been numerous amount of think pieces written and opinions shared on social media, however, Glover revealed on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (May 10) that he ignored all of the chatter around his video. In fact, he hasn’t logged on to the internet. “I don’t want to be… it’s bad for me. I’m really sensitive,” he said told Kimmel. “I’ll just let it be.”

When questioned further, Glover said, “I see one negative thing and I track that person down. I’ll go into their Instagram and say, ‘you’re not so great.’ ‘That baby’s not even that cute,’” he jokes.

Directed by Hiro Murai, the “This Is America” music video tackles a range of topics that have affected the black community in America, from police brutality, gun violence and social media. The video has collected over 73 million YouTube views and should challenge for a No. 1 on next week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart, according to Nielsen Music.
