Gabrielle Union has been reportedly fired from NBC’s America’s Got Talent for speaking up against racism.
According to reports, the real reason Gabrielle Union got fired was because she allegedly spoke out about the work environment including “problematic” issues involving racism, sexism, and more.
The show had apparently made it look like a mere panel rotation.
According to Lovebscott, Gabriel Union was removed after speaking out about “problematic” situations involving racism, sexism, and more. Simon Cowell, they alleged, was the one who ultimately decided to replace Union.
Their source said: “[Gabrielle’s] contract was not renewed after being the #1 talent on the show, NBC and network TV,” the sources said. “She set the record for her Golden Buzzer. They only replace the women and blacks at Simon’s whim.
“She wouldn’t walk away from $12 million because she’s ‘busy.’ Based on weekly interactions on social media, by the time [the] AGT finale aired Gabrielle was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. Why not pick up someone’s option in extreme success?”
Julianna Hough was also let go from the program, which the source alleges has nothing to do with either judge’s popularity–because both received more interactions than Howie Mandel, who still has a job.
“Social media engagement is the new measuring stick for talent and Simon isn’t on social media. Juliane and Gabrielle were both way higher ranked/engaged than Howie. The idea the network wants to ‘switch things up’ only applies to women and Black folks. Nick Cannon wasn’t crazy. He walked away from 8-figures over how [AGT] operates.”
“Let’s just say they didn’t start the racism, homophobia, trans-phobia, Islamophobia etc. in season 14. They were quite comfortable with it all by the time Gabrielle got there. Remember Nick said ‘NBC stands for N*gga Be Careful.’”
