Gabrielle Union’s Exit From ‘America’s Got Talent’ Reaction

 

Here is one report from Today featuring a look into the departure from AGT…Gabrielle Union’s Exit From ‘America’s Got Talent’ Reaction.

From Gabrielle Union’s Twitter feed today.

The Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists issued a statement Monday saying it is looking into the allegations.

“We take issues of workplace health and safety very seriously.” The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television said in a statement. “We immediately reached out to Ms. Union’s representatives when these reports came to light … While we have taken steps to investigate this matter, we have nothing to report now.”

NBC, production company Fremantle and Cowell’s company Syco issued their own statement Sunday.

“We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture,” the statement said. “We are working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate.”

Gabrielle Union (and Julieanne Hough) respectively replaced Heidi Klum and Melanie Brown from the previous season. As a follower of how the panel has previously worked over the years, each panel is chosen in preproduction talks between the network and producers. Money and contract arrangements are all apart of the behind the scenes negotiations. Producers work to find the best available talent that hopefully maintains a connection with the audience. Union’s (and Hough’s) freshness to the panel provided the audience with some memorable moments.

However, like all relationships in television, it depends on the negotiations and talent’s appeal to be available to continue the next series. It appears something was not right and negotiations or lack of them left Union out of the next series. The matter is now being reviewed as per the latest information via AP.

Our coverage of the second series The Champions will commence January 6, 2020.

Leaks, acts, spoilers and stuff.

When it was announced last month that Gabrielle Union would not be returning to “America’s Got Talent” as a judge, some reports said it was due to Union’s complaints about inappropriate behavior involving producers and other talents.

Now NBC is responding to the controversy. NBC’s Morgan Radford reports on TODAY.
