Gabrielle Union has hit out against fellow America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews, accusing the actor of failing to support her following her departure from the show and subsequent racism allegations against NBC.
Appearing on the Spotify’s Jemele Hill Is Unbothered podcast, Union’s was asked about her thoughts on Crews after he praised the show after Union’s departure, as well his recent criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“People hit me all day long and are like, what’s happening? And the only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC. So, I don’t know if being worried about job stability — which listen, we all know that if you speak up about racism and white supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door.” Union explained. “I don’t know if that’s the motivation.”
Union also said her allegations of racism were undermined by the fact that Crews was also a judge on the show.
“I was like, ‘No, I was on there — with Terry Crews,’” she said sarcastically. “Based on his recent actions, do you really think Terry Crews was an ally, was helpful, was a sounding board? I think Terry Crews is showing us who he is and what he does during times of adversity and it’s not solidarity.”
An investigation following Union’s complaints of racism concluded that she was not the victim of any kind of discrimination, a conclusion she still contests. She went on to slam Crews for what she said was his decision to go on a press tour where his sole objective was to “discredit and malign” her character:
Not to say if I offer you solidarity I expect you to be the getaway driver during a bank robbery — that’s what he made it sound like in one of those series of tweets. If you saw something, say something. If you didn’t have my experience… you also have an option to say, ‘I believe Gab, I just had a different experience.’ You don’t have to do a press tour where your sole objective is to discredit and malign me. You know, I’ve been in Hollywood a very long time. There’s very little that surprises me, but that was very disappointing for sure.
.At the end of the day, the work that I am doing to make sure that NBC is a more fair and equitable place of employment will benefit you as well. So it’s OK to eat your cereal and let me do my thing and get out of the way. If you’re not going to help, then get out of the way. If you don’t feel financially comfortable, or spiritually comfortable or you flat out disagree, but at the end of the day he will benefit from a safer, more equitable workplace from what I stuck my neck out to do and got fired for, you know? Instead of actively working against progress.”
Crews has long distanced himself from the progressive consensus in Hollywood, urging people to reject “groupthink.” Last month, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star argued that Black Lives Matter risked morphing into a supremacist movement, while urging people to remember that they are all children of God.
“If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology,” Crews wrote at the time. “We must ensure [black lives matter] doesn’t morph into [black lives better.]”
If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology.
We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter

Joe Biden Has Said Nothing: CatholicVote Demands Biden Condemn Anti-Catholic Attacks
- The advocacy organization CatholicVote called on 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden Thursday to condemn a string anti-Catholic attacks nationwide in recent weeks.
- The most recent of these alleged attacks occurred at Sacred Heart Church in Weymouth, Massachusetts, where a fire at the church is being investigated as arson.
- Biden’s silence calls into question his commitment to combating “anti-Catholicism across the country,” according to CatholicVote President Brian Burch
The advocacy organization CatholicVote called on 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden Thursday to condemn an onslaught of recent anti-Catholic attacks.
CatholicVote said the former vice president should publicly speak out against the attacks, saying that since Biden is both a self-professed and baptized Catholic, he has a responsibility to condemn acts of vandalism and violence against Catholic churches.
“Catholic churches across America are literally burning, and Joe Biden has said nothing,” CatholicVote President Brian Burch said in a statement provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Leading members of the Democratic Party have fueled a climate of hate against Catholics, and these attacks have now led to acts of vandalism and violence.”
Since the beginning of July, a number of attacks on Catholic churches and statues have occurred throughout the U.S. These incidents include vandalism at a Connecticut church, the beheading of a Jesus statue in Miami, Florida, vandalism of a Virgin Mary statue in Montana, the beheading of a Virgin Mary statue in Tennessee, the burning of San Gabriel Mission in California, and an attack in which a man drove his car into a Florida church and set the church on fire while parishioners were inside.
The most recent of the attacks took place over the weekend at Sacred Heart Church in Weymouth, Massachusetts, in incident wherein fires charred the church’s door and melted the church’s interior. Police and arson experts are investigating the fires and believe a Molotov cocktail was thrown at the church.
Biden’s silence on these attacks calls into question his commitment to combatting “anti-Catholicism across the country,” according to Burch. (RELATED:EXCLUSIVE: White House Promises To Prosecute ‘Criminals’ For Anti-Catholic Crimes)

A senior White House official previously told the DCNF July 17 that the “criminals” who have vandalized and targeted Catholic churches and religious statues will be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”
“President Trump joins the Catholic community in solidarity during this difficult time,” the official told the DCNF. “Rest assured, President Trump will always demand law and order in American communities, and ensure the criminals causing these sacrilegious acts will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Trump campaign also condemned the onslaught of anti-Catholic crimes occurring throughout the United States in a July 17 statement to the DCNF, accusing “radical leftists” of attempting to destroy the “moral fabric of our nation.”
Biden has not responded to a number of requests for comment from the DCNF on the alleged anti-Catholic crimes.
“Many of these statues and churches were built centuries ago by faithful Catholics and remain powerful symbols for Catholics today,” Former Congressman and CatholicVote Senior Political Adviser Tim Huelskamp said in a statement provided to the DCNF.
“All good and decent Catholics are offended by this growing anti-Catholic rampage,” he added. “Joe Biden’s deafening silence during this hate-filled epidemic speaks loudly of his consent to this shocking assault on our religious freedoms.”
Biden has frequently referenced his Catholic faith throughout his political career, particularly as a reason for his past pro-life votes in the Senate.“I’m probably a victim, or a product, however you want to phrase it, of my background,” Biden said in 1982 of his decision to vote for a pro-life amendment.
My Dad used to say there’s no greater sin than the abuse of power.
Whether it’s an officer bloodying a peaceful protester or a President defending him with a conspiracy theory he saw on TV.
I’m a Catholic – just like Martin. Our faith says that we can’t accept either.

He has since changed his stances on abortion and today champions almost unlimited abortion access as a presidential candidate, prompting a priest to deny the former vice president Holy Communion during mass at Saint Anthony Catholic Church in South Carolina in October 2019.

“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Father Robert E. More told the Morning News. “Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”
The former vice president refused to discuss the incident, telling MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: “I’m not going to discuss that, that’s my personal life and I’m not going to get into that at all.”
