Donald Glover has praised the recent UK protests against Donald Trumps visit, saying he was proud to see that big balloon.

The US presidents visit was met with thousands protesting against his arrival, which also included a controversial balloon of Donald Trump in a nappy flying across Westminster.

Speaking during his Lovebox festival headline set as Childish Gambino, Glover, who previously lived in London for a year, remarked how our situation isnt so different from the US.

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND - JULY 14: The Baby Trump Balloon floats in the middle of crowds holding anti-Trump signs while the U.S. President is visiting Trump Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort in Scotland as people gather to protest during his visit to the United Kingdom on July 14, 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

You know were not that different, Glover said. Ive been seeing the same shit here that I be seeing in America.

I used to be like, “oh man, London cant be that bad, you dont got burns like that.” And then you all came out with the acid, I was like oh fuck. That shit is terrifying.

But everybody feels the same way, he added. I was very proud to see that big balloon. That shit is unfair. But the scary part is you gotta fight for that shit.
