“America’s Got Talent” is still getting dragged through the mud on Black Twitter and the show can thank fellow panelist Terry Crews for that.

The NBC show parted ways (or fired) judge Gabrielle Union in November after the actress made a commotion about what she called a toxic culture of racism and sexism at the long-running talent competition reality show.  The “Bring It On”  and “Being Mary Jane” star claims one incident involved former late-night talk show host Jay Leno who Union claims made a racist joke about Koreans while taping a segment.  Union filed a complaint with “America’s Got Talent” producers.

Some reports say once Union pointed out the problems with the Simon Cowell created the show, NBC decided that was the end of Union time on the set.  But it was just the beginning of a social media mess that Union dismissal has caused.

Those coming to Union’s defense included a legion of organizations like SAG-AFTRA, Time’s Up and a number of fans and celebrities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One celebrity not running to Union’s defense is current AGT host Terry Crews who in an appearance on NBC’s “Today Show” denied that the show has a toxic, racist and sexist environment.  Crews said “…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 … In fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment.”

Fans saw the move as backstabbing to Union and immediately began slamming Crews on social media.   Crews finally had enough and on Monday and posted…

Instead of settling the matter, Crews just seemed to make already angry fans even angrier…


Black Twitter was quick to point out that Union and so many other Black women supported the “The Everybody Hates Chris” actor when he made charges of sexual abuse in Hollywood.  Now it seems those fans are pulling their support since Crews doesn’t seem willing to support a fellow actor/show member/Black person when they are out on a limb trying to blow the whistle on a problem.

Crews might want to be careful upsetting that base…sounds like many of them are willing to stand with Union on this and cancel him as well as the show he’s hosting.

    I guess Terry Crewes is what he is I guess a complete Coon .If anything Gabrielle Union getting fired from Americas Got Talent is the best thing for her.Why would any self respecting black person ever want to be associated with such a lame ass crappy show created by a complete wanker like Simon Cowell? Black folks need to have their own entertainment industry and quit catering to white owned Hollywood.

    One emasculates Black boys & the other is an emasculated Blackman🤦🏾‍♂️…neither one of their trifling a**es is a “sympathetic character” & both of these assimilation casualties can go to you-know-where in my opinion!!!
