ABC/Lou RoccoAfter Terry Crews weighed in on the controversy surrounding Gabrielle Union‘s America’s Got Talent firing — which came following her claims of a toxic work culture — Union is now seemingly calling out Crews for his comments.
In a series of tweets on Friday, Union appeared to react to an interview Crews did on the third hour of NBC’s Today show, during which he called the AGT set “the most diverse place” he had ever worked in his career.
“Why anyone would gleefully get up on TV and tell lies that NO ONE disputed…But we already know,” Union wrote, responding to a fan who said it was “wild to see people pretend that the glaring racism doesn’t exist.”
She then seemingly questioned the “diversity” that Crews said existed on set.
“Can someone please ask abt what happens to all that diversity folks are talking about BEHIND THE SCENES,” she tweeted. “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?”
She also seemingly addressed Crews’ assertion that because Union didn’t send out an official statement, her allegations hadn’t been confirmed.
Referring to the investigation into her complaints that NBC is conducting, she wrote, “Maaaaaan…We all agreed to let the investigation be completed before speaking but if we doing this, ohhhhh baby let’s gooooooooooo!”
As previously reported, Union was fired from America’s Got Talent following her reported complaints about the allegedly racially insensitive work environment on set. Her firing resulted in immense backlash, and Union then confirmed that she met with NBC to discuss her complaints and “express [her] unfiltered truth.”
Crews, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel are all expected to return to AGT for its next season.
