Creepy "Atlanta" character Teddy Perkins made a surprise appearance at the 2018 EMMYs. But, who was behind it? More inside...



If you've watched the last season of "Atlanta" then you know who Teddy Perkins is. He's the creepy whiteface character played by "Atlanta" star/creator Donald Glover in Season 2 of the hit FX series. The episode Teddy starred in quickly became one of the most celebrated episodes in the show's history and the episode was nominated for an EMMY.

It didn't take long to see the Michael Jackson comparisons in appearance and MJ's lifestyle once Teddy began talking. We can't lie, we were creeped out. Well, Teddy Perkins bought his creepy behind to the 70th annual EMMY Awards at the Microsoft Theater last night. And everyone's talking about it.

The thing is, folks were confused on whether it was Donald Glover dressed up or, perhaps his "Atlanta" co-star Lakeith Stanfield. Turns out, it was neither of them! See the Teddy character snap it up with Donald, Brian Tyree Henry and Lakeith above. We're still not sure who the fake Teddy Perkins is, but there are rumors that "SNL" comedian Jay Pharoah dressed up as Teddy:








We noticed Jay retweeted pics and videos of Teddy on his Twitter timeline, so it's possible.

Donald was nominated in the Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category, but unfortunately lost to Bill Hader. When Bill went up to accept his award, Teddy was the first to congratulate him before he made it up on stage:


Then, he went viral.

Here are a few more flicks of Teddy making his EMMY rounds:
