In a since-deleted tweet, the producer and brother of Donald Glover says their idea for an episode about the singer was what sunk the planned show.

Donald Glover and his brother Stephen Glover were recently rumored to have left their roles on the animated Deadpool TV series over creative differences.

Now, Stephen has revealed more details about the pair's departure from the show. Discussing a planned episode about Taylor Swift, he said it was the “last straw” for the project, which was then taken out of the brothers’ hands, The Wrap reported Sunday.

“There really was a Taylor Swift episode. It was HILARIOUS. And it definitely was the last straw lol,” Stephen wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “Our show wasn’t too black. It wasn’t really that black at all. But we definitely wanted to give ‘Rick and Morty’ a run for their money and I think we would have. Proud of the gang.”

Stephen's remarks follows a series of since-deleted tweets from Donald revealing that he wasn’t “too busy to work on Deadpool,” as some had suggested. He then proceeded to tweet out page after page of the show’s deeply meta script, which finds the Deadpool character wondering aloud why his animated series got scrapped.
