Gabrielle Union Firing Rumors Confirmed


This week news leaked that Gabrielle Union had been fired from her judging gig on America's Got Talent after she complained about the pervasive racist and sexist culture behind the scenes at NBC [click here if you missed that].

More details from Gabrielle's firing have been revealed...

  From Variety
In April, Jay Leno acted as a guest judge on the variety show. During the taping, the former late night host made an anti-Asian joke that individuals — including Union, who served as a main judge for the 14th season — found offensive. Union encouraged producers to report the joke to human resources, reportedly not the first time she expressed concern of the toxic culture at “AGT.”
According to Vulture, Union was allegedly told that a 10-year-old black rapper, Dylan Gilmer, wasn’t fit for the program because the producers wanted a contestant “America could get behind.” They ultimately chose a group of white high-kicking dancers.
The Vulture report also revealed that Union, who is allergic to cigarette smoke, filed a complaint about Simon Cowell smoking indoors, but was told by an NBC executive that they couldn’t stop him. The “AGT” exec producer and judge has reportedly smoked for years inside the show, which is against the law in California.
Gabrielle was also told her hairstyles were "too black."

Hmmmm....unfortunate what happened to Gabby.

With her bonus son, I see all that pandering to the alphabet mafia didn't help her cause. Her and hubby been going extra hard for that group.

Tuh, but " they" didn't come to Gabby's rescue.

Her hairstyles were too black? That is racist and it explains those wretched weaves Tyra was wearing when she was host. I'm not a fan of Gabby but I'm glad she put them on blast.

hating for no reason 10:17, this snippet doesn't refer to anything about the alphabet gang, but i see BLATANT racism...Gabby is unapologetically black and I am sure that doesn't work in her favor...her and the Alphabet shit is over the top too, but if it were just that, Trust they will go against Simon for that...but for a black girl and black issues nah...

Moral of the story...Human resources is not your friend.

Hmmmm, ..Gabby knows Hollywood so why tf would u go complain to the fake HR?! Should've made an anonymous call to the fire dept & hired your own hair stylist. Either way, something sounds fishy..maybe GU wasn't pulling in ratings?!

Let me take a shot in the dark here and ask a pose question: What percentage of Blacks and/or other minorities make up any HR Department in Hollywood? Ok. Nuff said.

Who is surprised by this, Simmon's ugly big square headed ass and hairy ass spongebob shaped body, is a undercover racist despite fucking black women. I never like his ass or that wack ass show. He husband is rich she will be okay. It would be nice if Mary Jane would get a second go, I did enjoy being Mary Jane.

Jay Leno and Simon Cowell both of them are racist to the bone. Most of white Hollyweird is racist. I'm not surprised at all by this.
