AceShowbiz - Things seemingly get messier in the aftermath of Gabrielle Union's firing from "America's Got Talent" over racism and sexism. After the actress slammed NBC and former co-judge Simon Cowell over their response to her firing and the alleged "toxic" workplace environment at the show, a new report suggests that Gabrielle is considering to take legal actions.
It is said that the "Bring It On" actress is "exploring her legal options against the network." The report further states that Gabrielle previously signed a three-year contract with NBC, though the network had the choice to select her or drop her after each season.
The Peacock network and Freemantle insisted in its statement that the "Think Like a Man" actress was let go from the show because they're just rotating a judge out to keep the talent show fresh. However, previous reports claimed she ruffled feathers by looking out for the staff and crew and wanting to maintain a healthy work environment for those on and off camera.
"America's Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show," the statement read. "The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity. NBC and the producers take any issues on set seriously."
They said they would be working with Gabrielle's camp to resolve any issues that she thought might be concerning, "We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture. We are working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate."
The actress, however, wasn't impressed with the apology. She retweeted this message, "A solid apology comes in three parts. 1. Sincerely admit wrong doing directly to the offended party. 2. Be twice as loud correcting your mistake as you were making the mistake. 3. Lay out steps to correct your behavior in the future. Anything less is covering your own a**." Along with it was a meme of Oprah Winfrey saying, "I will not accept that."
