NBC settles with the former judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’, Gabrielle Union, after her accusations of uncontrollable workplace toxicity on the talent competition show.

“We’ve reached an amicable resolution. NBC Entertainment appreciates the important concerns raised by Gabrielle Union and remains committed to ensuring an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds can be treated with respect,” NBC and Union’s spokespeople said in a joint statement.

Earlier this year, the 47-year-old revealed that she was fired as a judge from the show after she filed grievances complaining of racism, health violations, and her being labeled as problematic due to wanting to have a fair work environment. 

As an internal investigation began, NBC and producer Fremantle Media claimed they found no evidence of any systemic racism. However, there were changes made to Human Resources reporting policies. 

In June, Union filed a harassment complaint in the state of California against “AGT”. Union also accused Paul Telegdy, NBC Entertainment chairman, of menacing her for publicly speaking about the work culture. 

In May, Union spoke with Variety about how difficult it has been for her to speak out.

“Do I cave? I didn’t feel like myself; I’m shape-shifting to make myself more palatable. I’m contorting myself into something I don’t recognize. I had to look at myself and say, ‘Do you want to keep it easy? Or do you want to be you, and stand up?’ Because I’m not the only one being poisoned at work,” she stated.

She added, “What is the point of having a seat at the table and protecting your privilege when you’re not doing— to help other people? It’s terrifying to speak truth to power about anything. I’m trying not to be terrified, and some days are better than others.”
