It was nearly a year ago when Gabrielle Union alleged her time at America’s Got Talent was filled with discriminatory practices and racist statements. And now, after being told that an investigation into her dismissal from the NBC show resulted in “no wrongdoing” on the part of the network, Union has scored a settlement in relation to her discrimination complaint.
“We’ve reached an amicable resolution”, an NBC spokesperson told Page Six. “NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds can be treated with respect.”
This comes after Union alleged that guest judge Jay Leno made a racist joke, and producers deemed one of her hairstyles “too black” for the show. The actress also alleged that a black contestant was axed from the show because they needed a performer whom “America could get behind.”
It has been reported that Union was paid a settlement by “AGT” producers Fremantle and Syco and NBC — the same folks who claimed that Gabrielle’s allegations were essentially hogwash stating that the findings of their investigation showed:
” … no one associated with the show made any insensitive or derogatory remarks about Ms. Union’s appearance, and that neither race nor gender was a contributing factor in the advancement or elimination of contestants at any time.”
Hmmm … seems to us that when Union stated AGT was a “toxic environment” she was absolutely right.
