Gabrielle Union left America’s Got Talent over alleged sexist and racist comments from the executives! That being said, since she would apparently be often criticized for her hairstyles on the show, she decided to send a message by sharing just that on social media – a collage of all the hair she’d rocked while on the show’s jury panel!
It sounds like Gabrielle wanted to make it very clear that people can and should be themselves no matter what.
As mentioned before, the post seems to be in response to the Variety reports that the network would criticize her for the hairstyles she’d have on the show, supposedly calling them ‘too black’ for the competition’s audience!
At the same time, an insider from the network denied such racist comments were made, saying that the notes were actually only about ‘hair continuity’ for Gabrielle as well as for Julianne Hough, who left the series as well!
Alongside the hairstyle pics, Gabrielle wrote: ‘Unapologetically me. Be comfortable and confident with your whole a*s self. It might give others the fluuuxxxx but never stop being you. You can really shine on your own terms. And if you have something to say 🤷🏾♀️ I do not take notes rooted in anti blackness. I love myself as I am.’
Last week, Union had a 5 hour long meeting over the so called ‘toxic culture’ on the set of AGT.
As a result, NBC has shared with ET that they are looking into Gabrielle’s accusations deeper.
A spokesperson for the network told the news outlet that ‘The initial conversation was very candid and productive. While there will be a further investigation in order to get a deeper understanding of all the facts, we’re working with Gabrielle to come to a positive resolution.’
