Gabrielle Union Responds to NBC After The Network Says it’s ‘Working’ With Her
As we previously reported, Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough were abruptly fired from America’s Got Talent a couple weeks ago.
Following the firings, Gabrielle revealed that there was subtle racist and misogynistic behavior happening behind the scenes. She apparently even went to HR about it, not long before she was fired.
Now, the actress is calling for change at the NBC show.
Producers said in a statement yesterday: “We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture. We are working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate.”
Following their statement, Gabrielle shared a tweet on the proper way to apologize.
In her tweet, freelance writer Joelle Monique outlined what makes for a solid apology: “1. Sincerely admit wrong doing directly to the offended party. 2. Be twice as loud correcting your mistake as you were making the mistake. 3. Lay out steps to correct your behavior in the future. Anything less is covering your own a–.”
“This! This! AND THIIISSSSSSS!!!!!!” Gabrielle wrote in response.
So clearly, she’s insinuating NBC’s apology wasn’t enough. Oy! What’s next with this never-ending saga?
