Rory Culkin’s Nude “Swarm” Scene Has Twitter Talking

As Childish Gambino, he makes incredible music, and as Donald Glover, he makes must-see television. Is there anything the multi-talent can't do? The Atlanta star's latest project is called Swarm, and it landed on Amazon Prime Video this past weekend. If you skipped out on scheduling in an early binge-watch of the series, you should know that it's loosely inspired by Beyoncé and her BeyHive to provide comedic (and at times chilling) commentary on the stan culture that exists in our society today.

Swarm's main character, Dre, is played by Dominique Fishback. Glover also brought a host of impressive celebrity guest stars for the seven-episode show. Among them are Paris Jackson, Billie Eilish, Damson Idris, and Chloe Bailey. The latter two kick off the first episode with a wild sex scene that caused nothing short of a stir online. Of course, that's not the only nude acting we saw. As DailyMail reports, 33-year-old Rory Culkin is also raising eyebrows with his brief appearance on the show. It chiefly found him revealing his genitalia behind a bowl of strawberries.

The moment comes after the beloved actor's unnamed character meets Dre at a nightclub, where they dance provocatively and make out before heading back to his apartment. Upon waking up in the morning, Culkin surprises the lead with breakfast, offering his penis along with the fruit. It remains unclear if a prosthetic was used, or if the New York native was brave enough to show off his most intimate bits for the camera. Still, Twitter is certainly having a field day reacting to the unexpected Swarm moment.

"They put Rory Culkin on 'Swarm' all of 5 minutes just so he could show his d*ck next to a bowl of strawberries?????" one annoyed user wrote upon watching. Another added, "Rory Culkin didn’t get enough screen time in 'Swarm' for my liking."
