For the very first time beloved actress #GabrielleUnion has come forward to publicly speak on her former America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews failure to support her within her discrimination battle with NBC!
Are all white people bad?
Are all black people good?
Knowing this reality- I stand on my decision to unite with good people, no matter the race, creed or ideology.
Given the number of threats against this decision-
I also decide to die on this hill.

According to Deadline, Gabrielle recently appeared on #JemeleHill ‘s podcast “ Jemele Hill Is Unbothered,” where she was forwarded questions amid Terry’s comments made about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
“People hit me all day long and are like, what’s happening? And the only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC. So, I don’t know if being worried about job stability — which listen, we all know that if you speak up about racism and white supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door.” Gabrielle states. “I don’t know if that’s the motivation.”
Gabrielle goes on to state that Terry’s actions made it clear that he wasn’t on her side while she was found on America’s Got Talent.
“Based on his recent actions, do you really think Terry Crews was an ally, was helpful, was a sounding board? I think Terry Crews is showing us who he is and what he does during times of adversity and it’s not solidarity.”
Gabrielle concludes, “At the end of the day, the work that I am doing to make sure that NBC is a more fair and equitable place of employment will benefit you (Crews) as well.“
“So it’s OK to eat your cereal and let me do my thing and get out of the way. If you’re not going to help, then get out of the way. If you don’t feel financially comfortable, or spiritually comfortable or you flat out disagree, but at the end of the day he will benefit from a safer, more equitable workplace from what I stuck my neck out to do and got fired for, you know? Instead of actively working against progress.”
Last month social media users dragged Terry for his comments made on Twitter, “If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.”
On numerous occasions Terry has identified BLM as a Black Supremacist group and then awkwardly back peddle to make a point of some sort.
