Gabrielle Union slams Terry Crews’ lack of ‘solidarity’ amid America’s Got Talent fallout

Gabrielle Union has slammed “America’s Got Talent” host Terry Crews for not supporting her after she was fired from the NBC show.

The actress spoke out about the toxic workplace culture and made allegations about the discrimination she witnessed and experienced during her time as a judge on the show during season 14.

Throughout the drama, critics of the actress questioned why she faced the alleged racism when she wasn’t the only Black person on set, with the star telling Spotify’s Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast that Crews wasn’t an “ally” during the ordeal.

“People hit me all day long and are like, what’s happening? And the only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three cheques from NBC,” she shared. “So, I don’t know if being worried about job stability – which listen, we all know that if you speak up about racism and White supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door. I don’t know if that’s the motivation.”

She continued: “Based on his recent actions, do you really think Terry Crews was an ally, was helpful, was a sounding board? I think Terry Crews is showing us who he is and what he does during times of adversity and it’s not solidarity.”

Back in 2017, at the inception of the #MeToo movement against misconduct in Hollywood, Crews came forward with an allegation of assault, which Union insisted she supported him through.

“Not to say if I offer you solidarity I expect you to be the getaway driver during a bank robbery – that’s what he made it sound like in one of those series of tweets,” she explained. “If you didn’t have my experience… ‘I believe Gab, I just had a different experience.'”

Now, the star is focused on making the network a “more fair and equitable place” to work, which will ultimately help people like Crews, she insisted.
