Scandals & Controversies
White and Glover’s relationship has garnered some criticism because she is not black. Glover himself is black, while White is white-Asian. When it was revealed that he was dating her, it did not go down well with some people. One Twitter user wrote that the real issue was that even though someone (Glover) preaches about loving black women, makes songs about being “woke”, and caters to the black community, that someone was himself dating outside his race.
