Dwayne Wade Reveals His Family Was Followed Amid Gabrielle Union’s Legal Issues W/ AGT
Dwayne Wade revealed in a series of tweets the treatment that he and his family allegedly received during the investigation and legal issues that his wife Gabrielle Union had with Americas Got Talent and the production companies associated with the show.
A reporter by the name of Yashar Ali shared the details of the current legal battle that Gabrielle Union is involved in with Simon Cowell and the production team at Americas Got Talent. In response to the report, Dwayne Wade wrote,
“Y’all have deemed her a liar after months of trying to inform y’all of the issues in the work place and also make sure other employees of color that comes after her won’t have the same experiences.”
“Instead of looking thru the lens of someone who has been an advocate for the black and brown community, for women and for rape victims.”
“So instead of making sure your work environment is a a better place for everyone. Y’all have decided that she what? Made it all up because she lost a job? She’s a black women in Hollywood she has lost out on many jobs”
“When these negotiations started my house started being watched and my family started being followed. My daughter couldn’t even go to swim class without us being trailed by people looking for answers. Well y’all have the answers and y’all still don’t wanna listen to them.”
According to reports, the former America’s Got Talent judge is suing Simon Cowell, Universal TV, Syco Entertainment and Fremantle Productions North America for claims regarding alleged “racist and misogynistic conduct” during her time on the show. In the suit, Gabrielle also alleges that NBC Entertainment chairman Paul Telegdy directly intervened in a probe over the racism and misogyny claims in an effort to “silence and intimidate” her.
NBC has since released a statement denying Gabrielle Union’s claims and defended Paul Teledgy,
“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.”
