47-year-old ‘Sleepless’ actress Gabrielle Union has just filed a DISCRIMINATION lawsuit against the producers of ‘America’s Got Talent.’
Gabrielle publicly complained last year about the toxic work environment on-set at the show; and now the star has filed an official complaint against the network, producers, and the state of California! Union also claims in her complaint that she was threatened by Paul Telegdy, NBC Chairman, for speaking out against the heavy racism on-set!
The official complaint, filed through Union’s lawyer Bryan Freedman, states: “When Gabrielle Union informed NBC of racially offensive conduct during the taping of America’s Got Talent, NBC did not ‘stand’ with her in ‘outrage at acts of racism. Instead, NBC did not care enough to either promptly investigate Ms. Union’s complaints or even ask HR to get involved. Rather, NBC stood against her and directed its ‘outrage’ at Ms. Union for whistleblowing about the racially offensive conduct she experienced while working for NBC on America’s Got Talent.’ In sharp contrast to NBC’s recent statement on race, what was truly an ‘outrage’ was the fact that Paul Telegdy, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, actually threatened Ms. Union in an attempt to silence her from telling the truth about racist actions that took place on the show. There is no place for this type of racial bullying in the workplace, and it is going to take more than a Tweet from NBC to demonstrate that NBC intends to create an environment free from racism.” Let us know: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE ALLEGATIONS? COULD THEY BE TRUE?! COULD AMERICA’S GOT TALENT REALLY BE SO TOXIC? IT LOOKS SO HAPPY!
