Donald Glover and Teddy Perkins attend the 70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater on Sept. 17, 2018. 

Atlanta fans flooded the Twittersphere with both excitement and terror when the FX show's scariest character, Teddy Perkins, appeared in Donald Glover's seat at the Emmy Awards. Speculation swirled that Perkins was actually Glover, who played the role on the season two episode of the same name. However, when the actor was seen back in his seat minutes later, fans theorized that Perkins could be Lakeith Stanfield.

To add to the mystery, a few new photos featuring Donald Glover, Lakeith Stanfield, and Teddy Perkins together have slammed all the theories. In fact, even Issa Rae, who was seated next to Glover at the Emmys, didn't know Perkins wasn't Glover. “I had just finished talking to Teddy, thinking it was Donald the whole time,” she wrote on Twitter alongside the photo of the actor and the Michael Jackson-inspired character.

Fans online have given up on speculating, and now everyone is just confused. See some of the best reactions below.
