Once again, Gabrielle Union has come out to share her opinions on the wrongs that were going on in "America's Got Talent" show. Since it was announced that the actress will not be coming back as a judge to the show, a lot of things have gone blurry. Some fans who are defending Union against the show, say that there are forms of discrimination happening on the show, and since Union was not good with it, she was asked to leave.

To put the icing on the cake, Union recently shared a statement with the public, giving her opinions on the kind of hairstyles she wore as a black woman. According to reports, this was one of the reasons why Union could no longer be a part of the show; because her hairstyle choice was seen as 'too black' for the people viewing the show. This report was quite alarming as it is the culture of Americans to wear and look the way they want, whenever they want to.

Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday, the 47-year-old mother of one posted a lovely video shared by her hairstylist, Larry Sims, a week back. This video showed explicitly the different hairstyles Union had on while she was a judge on AGT and they were amazing to watch. The video had said all the words fans wanted to hear, but Union went ahead an captioned it; "Unapologetically me." She went on to say that everyone needed to be comfortable and self-assured about the choices that they make for themselves.

She also explained that being sure of oneself, may make other people uncomfortable and defensive, but that does not mean you should stop being yourself. In many ways, Union was saying these words to herself as much as she was saying it to her fans and her comment section blew up with support from thousands of fans. Aside from other celebrities who saw Union's firing as a wrong act, her husband, Dwayne Wade praised his wife for her confidence and not-settling attitude towards AGT

It was not long ago that we had Wade as a guest judge on the show, and from what fans could see, the couple worked pretty well together. Aside from having a few jokes and laughs, Union and Wade were exceptional judges on the show and that was fantastic to watch.

Since her Instagram post, fans have not stopped singing Union's name on Twitter, for her bravery and courage. Many pointed out the fact that the female judges on the show were always rotated, while the male judges stayed put every season.
