Gabrielle Union endorses post about apology

Gabrielle Union arrives at the 'America's Got Talent' Season 14 Live Show Red Carpet at Dolby Theatre

Gabrielle Union welcomed the TLC that her husband, National Basketball Association legend Dwyane Wade, was able to provide her during the Thanksgiving holiday week after her shocking ouster from the perennial hit show "America's Got Talent".

News broke on November 22 that Union and Julianne Hough - who joined the season 14 AGT judging panel in February, replacing Mel B and Heidi Klum - would not be returning for the show's 15th season.

Fans were shocked to hear the women would not be back, and then a report came out detailing the toxic culture that Gabrielle allegedly faced on the set of the show.

Stern served as a judge on "America's Got Talent" for four seasons before exiting the show in 2015, and did not appear on the same season with either Cowell (who is also an executive producer) or Union.

According to another report, published by Vulture, Union was "perceived as "difficult" by Simon Cowell and his team of producers" after voicing concerns about "perceived racist incidents, Cowell's habit of smoking indoors, and attempts to keep the show from misgendering contestants". Howard asked rhetorically, before answering, "He has set it up that the men stay no matter how old they are, no matter how fat they are, no matter how ugly they are, no matter talentless they are".

He went on, saying how "obvious" it was that the show regularly dismissed their female hosts in order to bring in 'hotter chicks and younger chicks'.

Fiat Chrysler, auto union reach tentative deal on contract
Commerzbank upgraded Fiat Chrysler Automobiles from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a report on Wednesday, October 30th. Millennium Management LLC boosted its stake in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles by 51.3% in the 3rd quarter.

Leno was confronted over the weekend by TMZ crews in Hermosa Beach, CA, saying: "I love Gabrielle Union. I really enjoyed working with her, she's really good", said Leno. He said he didn't know anything about the situation, but reiterated that Union was a "great girl".

In Nov. 22 report by our sister site Variety, Gabrielle allegedly complained to NBC producers about a joke guest Jay Leno made during an appearance about Koreans eating dogs that didn't ultimately make air. Sources on the series told the outlet he joked the dogs looked like something one would find "on the menu at a Korean restaurant", alluding to the stereotype that all Asian people eat dog meat.

A representative for Cowell did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.

Syco Entertainment, NBC, and Fremantle said in a statement to PEOPLE on Sunday: "We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture".

Insiders claimed that both Union and Hough's contracts could have been renewed, but NBC asserted that they have simply "rotated out".

Union's husband, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, confirmed her firing on Twitter, and wrote that he was proud of his wife for being selected as a judge on AGT. "We are working with Ms. Union through her representatives to hear more about her concerns, following which we will take whatever next steps may be appropriate", the statement read. "So many tears, so much gratitude", she tweeted. Humbled and thankful, forever ❤.
