America's Got Talent Under Investigation After Racism Claims by Union

Association and individual judge Julianne Hough left "America's Got Talent" a month ago.

The reverberations from Gabrielle Union's ouster from NBC's America's Got Talent continues apace. "I'm still waiting on a good answer to that question".

"When I was there it was, you know, a great show to work on. And I get an American Airlines ticket and he's in a private plane?" she added. She's also making an appearance during the network's annual "Christmas in Rockefeller Center".

Hough's reserved and cordial answer comes in light of the former "Dancing with the Stars" alum and fellow judge Union's departure amid reports that she allegedly left due to racially motivated incidents. I didn't come by let slouch, ' she defined.

On the first season of The X Factor U.S., Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (who replaced Cheryl Cole midseason) were judges along with Cowell, 60, and producer L.A. Reid, 63.

Howard, who seemed on AGT as a mediate between 2012 and 2015 added: 'What he manages to fracture on all his presentations is he continually replaces the original chicks with hotter chicks and younger chicks.

A week ago, news broke that Union, 47, and Julianne Hough, 31, would exit "AGT", with reports saying the flight was an aftereffect of an affirmed "lethal" working environment at the show.

"AGT switches out female judges for "hotter chicks and younger chicks." data-reactid="33" type="text" "He sets it up that the men stay, no matter how ugly they are, no matter how old they are, no matter how fat they are, no matter how talentless they are", Stern continued, later claiming it's "obvious" that AGT switches out female judges for "hotter chicks and younger chicks".

While AGT's production companies NBC and Fremantle responded claiming the network values "inclusivity and diversity", a number of celebs, including Ariana Grande, Ellen Pompeo, Sharon Osbourne and Debra Messing, issued statements of support for Union and criticism of NBC. We are working with Ms. Association through her agents to hear increasingly about her worries, following which we will make whatever next strides might be proper.

The reports state that Union had asked producers to report an offensive joke made by American comedian Jay Leno, during the filming of his performance. The objective of the meeting was to improve the culture and atmosphere on the competition series.

A source confirmed to Page Six: "The companies are retaining outside counsel to assist us in learning more about the facts in this matter, starting with hearing from Gabrielle, which we expect to happen this week".
