Donald Glover, director and creator of the FX Series, Atlanta, and now formerly a writer for a Deadpool animated television series, has shared the mock script he was working on via Twitter. There was speculation it was an actual script, but it was simply written to prove a point.
According to "Deadline" FX announced previously: “Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series. FX will no longer be involved with the project.” If you've seen Atlanta or any of Glover's stand up comedy you may understand why. With out citing the entire snippet of the script it, like any Deadpool piece of work, breaks the fourth wall multiple times poking fun at the cancellation of the show. It also mentions the far-fetched notion that some bit Beyonce. Unfortunately the tweets have since been deleted, but they are available on multiple platforms. (Sorry Gambino)

Perhaps it was too soon to mention the last male rhino? His writing give the reader the sense that he writes he Deadpool's role as if it were himself: "(clarifying) I am an amazing rapper...," he wrote. "You know I'm not mad about this whole 'cancelled' thing. I actually think it's a good thing. I mean is it even a good time to have a violent, gun loving white man ranting on TV? ...Other than the president?"
His script, which he claims was written in a matter of 24 hours to prove a point to FX, continues on, speculating why the show may have been cancelled in Deadpool's voice; one of the reasons: alienating the "white audience", too many urban references. While it was a hilarious and heavy punching read, I am sad to see FX has cancelled the show. He would have been an excellent choice. There has been no word yet if the animated series will happen with different writers or if it's totally scrapped for now.
