Gabrielle Union after 'AGT' exit: I spoke my 'unfiltered truth' in 5-hour NBC meeting

USA Today Entertainment 1 week ago

Gabrielle Union revealed that she had a "productive meeting" with representatives from NBC, just two weeks after being fired from "America's Got Talent" following reports of a toxic work environment.

On Twitter Wednesday, the former "AGT" judge, 47, opened up about the "lengthy 5-hour" chat she had with the network.

NBC confirms with USA TODAY that a meeting indeed took place.

"I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth," Union tweeted. "I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change."

Union's new tweet marks the her second time alluding to controversy on the show, after thanking fans for their support last week following Variety's bombshell report of "toxic culture" at "AGT."

"So many tears, so much gratitude," Union tweeted on Nov. 27. "THANK YOU! Just when you feel lost, adrift, alone ... you got me up off the ground. Humbled and thankful, forever." 

On Nov. 26, Variety reported a culture of toxic, racist jokes and "excessive notes" about physical appearance on set after news broke that Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough would not be returning to "AGT" for a second year.

On Wednesday, Hough broke her silence on her controversial exit from the NBC talent competition. 

During an interview on People Now, Hough was asked regarding "How are you handling (the "America's Got Talent") situation and is there anything you wanted to clear up?"

“I would just say that – my goodness. I just believe and value at the highest regard that everybody has a voice and should be heard, first and foremost,” she said. “And then I believe that the paradigm of the workplace and how you do business and work with people now, it’s shifting, and I think that the people that really want to see change happen are going to authentically and positively... do that. And so that’s all I really have to say about that.”
