Fear of missing out − FOMO − is a real thing. 

And Monday, nearly every fan of FX’s  “Atlanta” and HBO’s “Insecure” was seething with a sweeping case of it when Issa Rae and other fresh-faced stars shared photos of Rae’s #LemonPepperKickback, a party that took place at an undisclosed location in Atlanta.

Now, Emmy-Award winner Donald Glover, songstress and actress Janelle Monae, Glover’s “Atlanta” co-star  Brian Tyree Henry and “Insecure” co-star Yvonne Orji were just some of the celebrities in attendance. Actress Amandla Stenberg and singer Luke James were also a part of the lemon pepper-themed shingdig.

Outside of the new stars of Black Hollywood making an appearance, Rae’s Instagram story revealed that Oscar winnner Samuel L. Jackson even pulled up on the kickback.

Many fans were in their feelings all weekend and most of Monday about missing the opportunity to party with the stars in what seemed to be a low-key gathering right here in Atlanta.

Some even suggested the novel idea of turning the lemon pepper gathering into a full-on annual festival.

No update on whether lemon peper wings were actually served nor if the party will be transformed into a festival.
