Ever since Gabrielle Union was fired from 'America's Got Talent' and revealed that she was discriminated against during the show, fans have been eagerly awaiting her meeting with NBC and Simon Cowell.

The investigation was sparked when Gabrielle Union spoke out about being called "difficult" and that her hairstyles were "too black" for the 'America's Got Talent' audience. Union's husband even pointed out that Gabrielle and Julianne Hough shouldn't have been fired because they have a larger social media following on a show that uses social media is its foundation.
