Former Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade in a series of posts on Twitter supported his wife Gabrielle Union and opened up about their lives being changed following the actress’ discriminatory complaint against NBC Universal – the accusations of which the outlet labels “categorically untrue,” Dwyane Wade defending Gabrielle Union following backlash received from some quarters due to a discrimination complaint she formally filed on Thursday after been fired from NBCUniversal’s America’s Got Talent wrote on Twitter: “Y’all have deemed her a liar after months of trying to inform y’all of the issues in the work place and also make sure other employees of colour that comes after her won’t have the same experiences,” he tweeted. “So instead of making sure your work environment is a a better place for everyone. Y’all have decided that she what? Made it all up because she lost a job? She’s a black women (sic) in Hollywood she has lost out on many jobs.” Wade also revealed that since the NBCUniversal (NBCU) drama began, their family’s home “started being watched” by people “looking for answers.” “My daughter couldn’t even go to swim class without us being trailed by people looking for answers. Well y’all have the answers and y’all still don’t wanna listen to them,” Wade, 38, wrote.
Union’s complaint, filed with California‘s Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), accuses NBC’s Paul Telegdy of threatening her for speaking out about racism on set. It also names FremantleMedia and Simon Cowell‘s Syco, as well as NBCU, Variety reports, adding that these kinds of complaints often lead to lawsuits. “We took Ms. Union’s concerns seriously, and engaged an outside investigator who found an overarching culture of diversity on the show,” NBCU said in a statement to Global News on Thursday evening. “NBCUniversal remains committed to creating an inclusive and supportive working environment where people of all backgrounds are treated with respect.” #GabrielleUnion#dwaynewade#NBCUniversal#racism#discimination#americasgottalent#black#news#entertainmentnews
