Gabrielle Union made headlines last December when she contested the reasons for her departure from ‘America’s Got Talent.’
As reported, she voiced concerns about a toxic culture at the show – alleging issues surrounding race and gender.
Now, the findings of an investigation launched by the driving forces of the hit show, have have been shared.
Check it out below…
NBC and ‘Got Talent’ producers Freemantle and Syco:
“Through the investigation process, it has been revealed that no one associated with the show made any insensitive or derogatory remarks about Ms. Union’s appearance, and that neither race nor gender was a contributing factor in the advancement or elimination of contestants at any time. The investigation has shown that the concerns raised by Ms. Union had no bearing on the decision not to exercise the option on her contract.”
“While the investigation has demonstrated an overall culture of diversity, it has also highlighted some areas in which reporting processes could be improved.
NBC, Fremantle and Syco share Ms. Union’s dedication to diversity and inclusion in the industry. We continue to remain committed to having an inclusive environment for everyone associated with the show, and to upholding AGT as one of the most diverse programs on television.”
As at writing, there has been no formal response from Union.
