Gabrielle Union Files Discrimination Complaint Against AGT Producers

Gabrielle Union has formally filed a discrimination complaint against America’s Got Talent producers.

The complaint comes after reports that AGT fostered a toxic environment. The 47-year-old Filed the complaint in California against the producers, the network, and accusing NBC’s Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out against on set racism.

The complaint, filed through lawyer Bryan Freedman, says, “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.”
