Artist, activist, and author, Gabrielle Union, has been wrapped up in some controversy surrounding America’s Got Talent. Gabrielle apparently raised concerns about a “toxic” and “racially insensitive” work environment.
Last week, NBC reported that an independent investigation was underway to look into the claims. Apparently, Simon Cowell smoked indoors on set, which is illegal in California. But he is an executive producer and his production company Syco makes the show. NBC, along with production company Fremantle and Cowell’s company Syco, said in a statement to CNN they are working with Union to “hear more about her concerns.”
Gabrielle Union tweeted after the meeting with NBC. As always, she’s the real deal.
We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday. I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change.— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) December 4, 2019
As troubling as all the AGT drama is, it seems that we should just take a moment to raise up Gabrielle Union, a powerful artist and mother.
She’s a beautiful mother to Kaavia James.
But that doesn’t mean she’s not fierce.
She’s married to basketball player Dwyane Wade.
The couple recently celebrated their daughter’s 1st birthday.
It was the cutest thing ever!
Gabrielle has the world’s cutest kid, actually.
In addition to being a strong mother, Gabrielle is a strong advocate.
She’s advocates for causes that are important to her like equal pay for black women.
Gabrielle’s so amazing that Oprah showed up to film after she gave birth.
Gabrielle’s a busy mom and her baby girl comes to visit her on set.
She must like it because she keeps visiting mom at work.
There are lots of set-visits when mom’s working.
Baby snatched her first wig.
Baby’s first red carpet.
But, it’s not all work. They play too.
They deserve a little rest and relaxation after all those days on set.
It’s always a good time for fun in the sun with mom.
Like, why not? We all like to swim a bit.
Sometimes you just need to swing a bit too.
She taught Kaavia James the classics from an early age.
Her family is literally picture perfect.
Name a better looking fam.

Clearly, Gabrielle isn’t sweating this AGT drama.
