Gabrielle Union got the boot from NBC's America's Got Talent and here's the reason why.

According to multiple sources, the news dropped on Nov. 22nd that her departure was due to yet another panel rotation, however this is not the case. Sources believe the real reason Union got fired was because she allegedly spoke out about the work environment including “problematic” issues involving racism, sexism, and more.

“[Gabrielle’s] contract was not renewed after being the #1 talent on the show, NBC and network TV,” the source claimed. “She set the record for her Golden Buzzer. They only replace the women and blacks at Simon’s whim. She wouldn’t walk away from $12 million because she’s ‘busy.’ Based on weekly interactions on social media, by the time [the] AGT finale aired Gabrielle was the #1 talent on network TV for 2019. Why not pick up someone’s option in extreme success?”

Gabrielle has yet to speak on her departure from the show – she has only been on the show for one season.
