Howard Stern Claims AGT Creator Simon Cowell ‘Orchestrated’ Firing of Gabrielle Union

Howard Stern Claims AGT Creator Simon Cowell ‘Orchestrated’ Firing of Gabrielle Union

After it was announced that Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough would not return for the 2020 season of the popular competition, many fans were left scratching their heads.

Meanwhile, Gabrielle is set to meet with NBC this week to discuss her departure from "America's Got Talent".

"However, I had my own problems with the network", Osbourne said".

"I just can't be fake", Osbourne said at the time.

"When I was there it was, you know, a great show to work on".

She used to be additionally allegedly told her hairstyles had been "too shaded" for the goal to. But, when she was there, the crew and everyone were unbelievable. "The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT's enduring popularity".

"She went on to allege that judge Howie Mandel, who still appears on Simon Cowell's TV talent show, was hired and offered a private plane, while she would fly commercial to live auditions".

Variety also reported that he received the note that his hairstyles in the air were "too black" while working on the program.


Stern, who served as an America's Got Talent judge from 2012-2015 called out Cowell's behavior, deeming it sexist. Mandel, who joined the show in 2010 for Season 5, is now the longest-serving judge.

It was last week that Wade took to Twitter to accuse the show of firing Union because she reportedly spoke out about the alleged racism that went on behind the scenes.

"We remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees and take very seriously any questions about workplace culture".

On Tuesday's episode of The conversation, Osbourne had more things to say about NBC, and agreed with Howard Stern's comment that Simon Cowell constantly replaces hot girls with hotter girls and younger girls, and is the "definitive boy club".

"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 said on his radio show, The Howard Stern Show.

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.

A source told Deadline: "Gabrielle believes there is a toxicity that has become normalised at Talent". The goal of the meeting was to improve the culture and atmosphere on the competition series.
