Here Is What Investigation In Gabrielle Union’s AGT Exit Revealed
One result we were waiting for from NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT) was this one. Producers Fremantle and Syco Entertainment have finally announced the result of the investigation to Gabrielle Union’s AGT exit. According to the star celebrity, she had to face racial comments and other casual offensive remarks. This was the reason why she left the show. In support, Julianne Hough joined her in this protest after which the show had to bring on Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara as replacements.
Nothing Happened Claimes Producers Over Union’s AGT Exit!
The reason for Gabrielle Union’s AGT exit was revealed back in November. Union expressed her concerns over offensive jokes by Jay Leno. She also talked about toxic culture at the show and that she received excessive notes over her appearance. This was then, after which NBC took the responsibility to go to the bottom of this to find out what happened.
On Thursday, NBC and AGT producers released a statement about what they concluded after their investigation on Gabrielle Union’s AGT exit:
“…Through the investigation process, it has been revealed that no one associated with the show made any insensitive or derogatory remarks about Ms. Union’s appearance. And that neither race nor gender was a contributing factor in the advancement or elimination of contestants at any time.”
So there you have it, folks!
The producers of the show and channel have found that Gabrielle Union’s AGT exit had no levels of solid claims. The statement further adds that “Ms. Union had no bearing on the decision not to exercise the option on her contract.” The statement then carries on to soothe the tensions between all those connected with the investigation.
“We continue to remain committed to having an inclusive environment for everyone associated with the show, and to upholding AGT as one of the most diverse programs on television.”
On the producers’ part, they hired an external investigator to back their claims that they took Union’s AGT exit seriously. This investigator has conducted over 30 interviews to analyze the situation, as per E! News. Producers’ response to the media was that they were very serious. Their claim was that they had a “productive meeting” with the former panelist as well. But does this justify the conclusion that has come out?
