Gabrielle Union is NOT here for Terry Crews throwing her under the bus.
via Page Six:
While thanking a fan for their support — following her exit from the NBC show and subsequent reports that it was a “toxic culture” behind the scenes — Union wrote, “Truth telling, wanting change & having MULTIPLE witnesses who bravely came forward to let EVERYONE know I didn’t lie or exaggerate, really exposes those who enthusiastically will throw you under the bus, forgetting quickly who stepped up 4 THEIR truth.”
The comment seems to be referencing her own support for Crews when he accused WME agent Adam Venit of sexually assaulting him in 2016.
In another tweet on Friday, Union, 47, wrote, “Why anyone would gleefully get up on TV and tell lies that NO ONE disputed … But we already know.”
Although she doesn’t name Crews, the tweets came one day after he defended the show, which is still going through an investigation.
“First of all, I can’t speak for sexism because I’m not a woman, but I can speak on behalf of any racism comments. That was never my experience on ‘America’s Got Talent,’” Crews said on the third hour of “Today” on Thursday. He also praised the diversity of its contestants.
Union continued her tweets on Friday: “Can someone please ask abt what happens to all that diversity folks are talking about BEHIND THE SCENES. Like, legit… where the hell is all that diversity in the production though homie? In the decision making ranks who control the fate of the diversity in front of the camera?”
“Maaaaaan… We all agreed to let the investigation be completed before speaking but if we doing this… ohhhhh baby let’s gooooooooooo!” another tweet read.
Her final tweet read: “Let’s also talk about where the diversity is in the hair & makeup dept for contestants that DOES NOT reflect all that diversity that hits the stage. Let’s Google the exec’s that run the show & ask follow up ?? about THAT egregious lack of diversity. Let’s discuss the facts”
In November, NBC announced that Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough were leaving the show. Soon after, Variety reported news of the alleged “toxic” environment on set, which included accusations that Union was told multiple times that her hairstyle was “too black.”
Terry should’ve kept quiet.
