Gabrielle Union Suing NBC and America's Got Talent


Last year actress Gabrielle Union claimed she was fired from the judges panel at America's Got Talent after complaining about the toxic environment behind the scenes [click here if you missed that].

Now Gabrielle Union has filed a lawsuit against the network...

Last week NBC announced the conclusion of their investigation into Gabrielle's claims and found no instances of racial discrimination or sexism [click here if you missed that].

This week Gabrielle filed a lawsuit against NBC, America's Got Talent and its producers for discrimination, retaliation, hostile work environment, unequal pay and emotional distress.

Gabrielle claims she was subjected to racist jokes, racist performances, sexual orientation discrimination, and excessive focus on female judges’ appearances, including race-related comments.

NBC has denied the claims and insists Gabrielle was not fired, but admits her contract was not renewed.

Union is seeking unspecified damages.

She should have spoken up before they tossed her ass out. Even though I believe her claims, she comes across as a disgruntled former employee.

I mean they fired the white lady too right?

Not renewing your contract is not the same thing as being fired.

She can kiss what's left of her Hollywierd career good bye. Suing BET over Being Mary Jane is one thing but NBC is a whole other monster. She will be labeled as difficult to work with.

.. and also Gabby thinks she's slick. How convenient to file this lawsuit during the heightened racial climate and protests.

She’s just never seemed pleasant. That being sad, having worked in roles with predominantly White people since my very first job, I’m sure they were doing all of the above.

R in NYC exactly!! however it will avail her naught. Ain't nobody riding with this chick, and her fuckery. She is clearly full of shit and seeking revenge for her contact, not being renewed.

Nail + coffin = what's left of Gabriell 's acting career.

She needs to talk to Rachel True about speaking out too much against the powers that be. Dwayne will probably stick around for a while but considering how she got him, I'm sure there's another side piece looking for a promotion.

Union and Wade have money but they don't have NBC money. NBC can afford to keep this suit tied up in the court system forever and ever and ever.

I believe her. It doesn't matter if I like her artistry or not. YT'y gets away with too much. We are in he middle of making a change.

why didnt she say all this to begin with. she never mentioned being threatened for whistle blowing. her claim was her contract wasn't renewed for whistle blowing. she is losing credibility. its starting to look like she just mad her contract wasn't renewed and think the only reason it could be is her color. she loses when the point remains the white girl is gone too.

I wish this broad would go awY. We got enuf on our plate now we got to watch out how this plays. She is very vocal why not say something while this was going. Why wait until the end of the season. First Bet now this. So annoying brat.

While I believe Whyt folks are culturally insensitive, Gabby is a bonified stank biyatch for NO reason. I knew her personally when she was a college student, and she was super duper mean-biyatch-for-no-reason to pretty much every other woman in sight. I am almost certain her contract was not renewed because she is a stank-biyatch, not because she is a black woman. Being a black woman was probably why they gave her the job.

People in the industry generally have the luxury of choosing who they work with. If you show your azz, they won't call you next time.

She is stunning in that picture even though she would look better with bigger, fuller lips.
