Gabrielle Union: NBC Is A Snake Pit Of Racial Offenses!!

Publish date:

In her harassment complaint against NBC, actress Gabrielle Union reportedly referred to the network as "a snake pit of racial offenses."

In the documents obtained by Page Six, Union listed examples of the network's alleged bias at work.

The filing accused NBC of hiring Julianna Hough as a judge alongside Union despite her "widely publicized scandal for personally appearing in blackface." 

The documents read, "Combining someone who so openly wore blackface (Hough) with someone who is black and regularly advocates on behalf of minorities (Union) should have at least alerted Telegdy that this could cause Union to experience some trepidation or concern about being unprotected from racially insensitive individuals while working as a judge on AGT… Telegdy's decision to hire Hough has since proven to be a reflection of NBC's true feelings about the African American community and blackface."

She also claimed that the network had "different rules for white males." 

NBC denies the allegations against them.

"The allegation that anyone involved in this process threatened Ms. Union is categorically untrue. We took Ms. Union's concerns seriously and engaged an outside investigator who found an overarching culture of diversity on the show. NBCUniversal remains committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect," their statement reads.
