Donald Glover Narrates New ‘Time’s Up’ PSA About Sexual Harassment

Donald Glover has lent his voice to narrate a public service announcement about the nuance of sexual harassment, organised by founding Time’s Up member Rashida Jones.

The animated clip, directed by Jones, sees Glover answering some simple questions regarding what constitutes sexual harassment, from things like unwanted touching and compliments, to encouraging viewers to intervene when they see harassment at work.

When Buzzfeed spoke to Jones on why she tapped Glover for the job, she said it was because of “his ability to be a part of and criticize culture at the same time.”

“I think it’s a really hard balance to strike,” Jones said. “And also to make really good shit! His music is great, his TV show is so innovative — he’s got that balance that very few artists do, where he’s able to be true to himself and be honest and make it feel fresh. But also to say something and have people listen.”

This comes just after Glover has announced an Australian tour as Childish Gambino, while also headlining Canberra’s Spilt Milk festival.
