Gabrielle Union can count on support from colleagues after dismissal

3 min read

Gabrielle Union has been able to count on the support of her colleagues since she was fired as a jury member at America’s Got Talent talent show. The actress is said to have raised a racist working atmosphere and then got the bag. Patricia Arquette and Grey’s Anatomy protagonist Ellen Pompeo, among others, stood up for her on social media.

“So many tears and so much gratitude”

Patricia calls it horrible that Gabrielle may have been fired for that reason. “She should not be punished for ensuring that labor laws are pursued in the workplace,” she tweeted. Ellen agrees and calls on her followers on Twitter to open their mouths against such injustice. “This is a learning opportunity. It’s important. White women, I talk to you. Whether you understand race injustice or not, stand next to your sisters.”

Last weekend it was announced that NBC had not renewed Gabrielle’s contract. Sources from the channel then said that she had sounded the alarm several times about incidents she experienced as racist. That included a joke from guest jury member Jay Leno about Koreans who would eat a dog, but also about a participant who constantly transformed into another singer during his act and who had imitated Beyoncé’s hands darkened. The actress is also said to have received a number of comments on her hairstyle; the hairstyles were said to be “too black”. NBC has not yet responded to the issue.

Gabrielle, too, has not yet responded to her resignation, but thanked her followers on Instagram for their support on Thursday. “So many tears and so much gratitude. Thank you. Just when you feel lost, out of control and alone, you managed to get me back on top.”
