Gabrielle Union Files Discrimination Complaint!! Following reports last year that America’s Got Talent fostered a toxic workplace environment that reportedly caused Gabrielle to complain, the 47-year-old actress filed a complaint in the state of California against the producers and network, as well as accusing NBC’s Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out against racism on set, according to Variety on Thursday (June 4).
“When Gabrielle Union informed NBC of racially offensive conduct during the taping of America’s Got Talent, NBC did not ‘stand’ with her in ‘outrage at acts of racism. Instead, NBC did not care enough to either promptly investigate Ms. Union’s complaints or even ask HR to get involved. Rather, NBC stood against her and directed its ‘outrage’ at Ms. Union for whistleblowing about the racially offensive conduct she experienced while working for NBC on America’s Got Talent,” the complaint, filed through lawyer Bryan Freedman, reads.
“In sharp contrast to NBC’s recent statement on race, what was truly an ‘outrage’ was the fact that Paul Telegdy, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, actually threatened Ms. Union in an attempt to silence her from telling the truth about racist actions that took place on the show. There is no place for this type of racial bullying in the workplace, and it is going to take more than a Tweet from NBC to demonstrate that NBC intends to create an environment free from racism.”
