Gabrielle Union again slams Terry Crews against his criticism of BLM and his lack of support for AGT
Gabrielle Union has called up Terry Crews once again for his recent criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement and the lack of support in her allegations of discrimination against NBC and America’s Got Talent.
And for the third time, Crews apologizes in a tweet to his former co-star.
This latest criticism from Union took place when asked about Crews’ comments about BLM and her resignation from AGT, both of which suffered a strong backlash, during an interview on the Spotify podcast Jemele Hill Is Unbothered.
War of words: Gabrielle Union again pissed Terry Crews for criticizing Black Lives Matter and lack of support in her fight with NBNC and America’s Got Talent
“People hit me all day and say, what’s going on? And all I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC, ”Union replied.
“So, I don’t know if I’m worried about job stability – listen, we all know that if you speak out about racism and white supremacy, you can definitely be thrown out the door. I don’t know if that’s the motivation. ‘
The actress added that she feels that Crews’ recent actions are more evidence that he was not on her side during her time on the competition reality show.
“Do you really think Terry Crews, based on his recent actions, was an ally, helpful, or sounding board? I think Terry Crews shows us who he is and what he does in times of adversity and it’s not solidarity, ”she said with clear passion.
Strong Opinion: Union, 47, claims that Crews was causing controversy with his comments about BLM and insinuated that he needs to pull the line with NBC and AGT to get his salary in
So sorry again: Crews apologized to Union for her powerful words during an interview on Spotify podcast Jemele Hill Is Unbothered
NBC conducted an investigation into allegations made by the Union about working in a toxic environment during its time at AGT and concluded that she was not the victim of discrimination.
“Ultimately, the work I do to ensure that NBC is a fairer and fairer workplace will benefit you [Crews] also, “said Gabrielle as reported by Deadline.
“So it’s okay to eat your cereal and let me do my thing and get out of the way. If you’re not going to help, get out of the way. If you’re not financially comfortable, or spiritually comfortable, or if you disagree at all, but at the end of the day, he’ll benefit from a safer, fairer workplace from what I put my neck to doing and for what you were fired know? Rather than actively working against progress, “she added.
Crews wasted little time and took to Twitter after Union’s podcast interview giving his third public apology to his former co-star.
“This will be my third public apology to Gabrielle Union. If a fourth is needed, I will continue to apologize and push for reconciliation between the world, and more importantly, the culture I grew up in. I’m sorry, @itsgabrielleu #reconciliation, ‘he wrote.

This give and take began after Crews got a response to a tweet he wrote about ‘black supremacy’ and how the Black Lives Matter movement can change its focus in light of the recent uprising about racial equality and police brutality.
A few weeks later, he took to Twitter urging people to remember that they are all children of God.
“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology. We have to take care of it [black lives matter] does not change to [black lives better.]’
From there, the TV personality went to CNN and discussed the purpose of the BLM movement.
Union was a jury member for the 14th season of America’s Got Talent, but was released after that one season in November 2019.
She claims she was fired after speaking out against racism and has since done so filed suit against AGT producers in May, citing racism and prejudice.
