Gabrielle Union Reportedly Fired From ‘America’s Got Talent’ For Speaking Out Against Racism, Sexism And More

American actress, Gabrielle Union-Wade has reportedly been fired from ‘America’s Got Talent.’

According to reports from LoveBScott, the 47-year-old actress who
used to be a judge on the show was fired for speaking up about
‘problematic’ situations, including racism, sexism, and many more.

NBC sources told lovebscott.com that “[Gabrielle’s] contract was
not renewed after being the #1 talent on the show, NBC and network TV.
She set the record for her Golden Buzzer. They only replace the women
and blacks at Simon’s whim. She wouldn’t walk away from $12 million
because she’s ‘busy.’ Based on weekly interactions on social media, by
the time AGT finale aired Gabrielle was the #1 talent on network TV for
2019. Why not pick up someone’s option in extreme success?”

The report also claimed that Gabrielle Union was fired from the program alongside her fellow Judge Julianne Hough.

The NBC sources continued: “Social media engagement is the new
measuring stick for talent and Simon isn’t on social media. Juliane and
Gabrielle were both way higher ranked/engaged than Howie. The idea the
network wants to ‘switch things up’ only applies to women and Black
folks.

The NBC insiders added that Gabrielle’s firing is merely a continuation of their problematic tendencies.

“Let’s just say they didn’t start the racism, homophobia,
transphobia, Islamophobia etc. in season 14. They were quite comfortable
with it all by the time Gabrielle got there. Remember Nick said ‘NBC
stands for N*gga Be Careful.’”

This comes two years after Nick Cannon took to Facebook to announce
that he was ‘threatened with termination by executives’ after he made a
racial joke about NBC on his Showtime stand-up special. He later quit
his job as host of ‘America’s Got talent,’ saying “My soul won’t
allow me to be in business with corporations that attempt to frown on
freedom of speech, censor artists, and question cultural choices.”
