Gabrielle Union's treatment on the set of America's Got Talent has sparked an investigation by the actors union SAG-AFTRA, who says they will look into reports about the culture of racism and sexism on the show.
A spokesperson for the organization said in a statement, “We take issues of workplace health and safety very seriously. We immediately reached out to Ms. Union’s representatives when these reports came to light. It is our practice to work closely with members who reach out to us and their representatives in instances like this, as that usually affords the best protection and best resolution for the affected member."
The organization made it clear they will conduct their investigation independent from the network or management of the show. “For certain matters, our investigation and enforcement needs to happen independently and we are prepared to handle this issue accordingly, as warranted," they said.
