Fans flocked to the comments to send love to the beautiful family. "Yea!! Have a wonderful time with your family!" one wrote.

"You all are tooooo precious for words," another commented.

"Y’all are always looking the most chic! Merry Christmas to your beautiful family from mine here in NC!" a third fan wrote.


The post comes after a week filled with backlash directed at NBC after a Variety report revealed that Union was let go after voicing concerns to executives of potentially racist and sexist behavior at the network.

Union said that she and the network met on Friday to discuss her concerns. "We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday. I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change," she tweeted.

Lots of celebs have been rallying to support Union. "Grey's Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo tweeted: "It’s unfortunate that @nbc the same network that protected disgusting men like Matt Lauer and punished women for speaking out or not putting up with it...has not changed their practices or culture. I support @itsgabrielleu commitment to speaking up to injustice. It takes courage"

Actress Viola Davis also has Union's back. "I always say that I never want my legacy to be one where I did not support," she told PEOPLE. "Because I know that when you step out and say something that is out of the norm, there is a lot of shame involved and there’s vitriol involved, and we have the cancel culture. I didn’t want Gabrielle Union to feel alone."
