Gabrielle Union tweets about 'truth telling' after Terry Crews comments

Gabrielle Union appears to have called out America's Got Talent host Terry Crews for throwing her "under the bus" after questioning reports about the reasons behind her TV firing.

The Bad Boys II actress was dumped from the reality show's panel of judges in November (19) after just one season, amid reports suggesting she had irked producers by raising concerns about a number of race and sex-related matters on set, which allegedly created a "toxic" work atmosphere.

Union has yet to comment directly on the specific incidents which led to her exit, prompting Crews to urge his former TV colleague to set the record straight about the scandal, because as a fellow African-American, he has "never" experienced any form of racism on set.

Speaking on U.S. breakfast show Today on Thursday (23Jan20), he declared America's Got Talent has been "the most diverse place that I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment".

The Expendables star went on to indicate his doubts about the racism and sexism rumours because it's all come from "an unnamed source".

On Friday, Union seemingly responded to Crews' remarks as she responded to a Twitter follower who had expressed her support for the actress for highlighting the problem of workplace discrimination.

"Truth telling, wanting change & having MULTIPLE witnesses who bravely came forward to let EVERYONE know I didn't lie or exaggerate, really exposes those who enthusiastically will throw you under the bus, forgetting quickly who stepped up 4 THEIR truth," Union wrote.

The latter part of her statement seemingly references her support of Crews in 2017, when he publicly accused top talent agent Adam Venit of sexual assault amid the rise of the #MeToo movement.

Crews has yet to respond to the thinly-veiled tweet.
