Union 's tweets come just a day after Crews defended the show's diversity. Terry Crews insists he neither experienced nor witnessed any racism or discrimination on the set of America's Got Talent—contrary to what Gabrielle Union alleged after her controversial ousting from AGT .

Gabrielle Union seems to be calling out Terry Crews without quite calling out Terry Crews.

The former America’s Got Talent judge wasn’t asked back for the upcoming season after being vocal about a toxic culture, with allegations of racism and sexism, on the set — which NBC is currently investigating. On Thursday, Crews, who is AGT’s host, appeared on another NBC show, Today, and spoke glowingly of his experience on the series, declaring, “I have never been in a more diverse place in 20 years of entertainment,” and proclaiming, “It was the best experience I ever had in my entire life.” He went on to diminish the allegations, because he claimed they’re all “coming from an unnamed source,” which is disputed.

  Heidi Klum 'Didn't Mean to Negate' Gabrielle Union's 'Truth' Amid America's Got Talent Controversy Heidi Klum Clarifies Comments on AGT Amid Gabrielle Union ScandalAfter catching some flack for her comments about the talent competition show at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour earlier this week, the supermodel turned TV personality is clarifying her words.

"To throw (someone) under the bus " is an idiomatic phrase in English meaning to betray a friend or ally for selfish reasons. It is typically used to describe a self- defensive disavowal and severance of

On Friday, Union posted several tweets that didn’t seem veiled regarding who and what she was responding to. In one, she said that “MULTIPLE witnesses” came forward to back her story, which she says “really exposes those who enthusiastically will throw you under the bus.” She ended by saying the person who did her dirty had forgotten “who stepped up 4 THEIR truth,” which is thought to be a reference to Union standing by Crews when he said he was groped by a male movie exec.

Another tweet asked why anyone would “gleefully get up on TV and tell lies that NO ONE disputed,” presumably referring to the Today show hosts not pressing him on his response.

She went on to post:

And her final tweet mentioned NBC’s investigation and said that they had agreed not to discuss it publicly until there was a resolution. “But if we’re doing this,” she wrote, “Ohhhh baby let's gooooooooooo!”

Terry Crews says his wife is the only one 'I have to please' amid backlash over 'AGT' comments

  Terry Crews says his wife is the only one 'I have to please' amid backlash over 'AGT' comments After backlash over comments on Gabrielle Union's "America's Got Talent" exit, Terry Crews says his wife is the only one he needs to keep happy."There is only one woman one (sic) earth I have to please," Crews, 51, tweeted Monday. "Her name is Rebecca. Not my mother, my sister, my daughters or co-workers. I will let their husbands/ boyfriends/ partners take care of them. Rebecca gives me WINGS.

Gabrielle Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, are speaking out after a report from Variety described “toxic culture ” on the set of "America's Got Talent" after news that Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough would not be returning to the reality singing competition for a second year.

Terry Crews did not stand up for Gabrielle Union when news of her shock firing from America's Got Talent - and he isn't doing it now, and is calling the show "the best experience" he's ever had. A bit of a slap in the face.

Crews was definitely a company man while supporting NBC on NBC.

“First of all, I can’t speak for sexism because I’m not a woman, but I can speak on behalf of any racism comments,” he said when asked about the controversy and if there is indeed a toxic atmosphere on set. “That was never my experience on America’s Got Talent. In fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment. The Top 10 acts were Asian, women, older, younger, black, white, it was everything in the gamut.”

He went on to say, “Now I have to say this, too. When you look at what the allegations were about, it was given by an unnamed source. It’s funny, because I believe you should listen to women, you should always believe women, so I asked my wife what I should do. “She was like, ‘First of all, if it’s coming from an unnamed source…’ because Gabrielle Union has not made any statement to this day about any of these allegations publicly.”

Gabrielle Union Invites Texas Student Told To Cut His Dreadlocks To The Oscars

  Gabrielle Union Invites Texas Student Told To Cut His Dreadlocks To The Oscars After Deandre Arnold, a senior attending Barbers Hill High School in Southeast Texas, was suspended from school and told he wouldn’t graduate due to his dreadlocks, Gabrielle Union (a producer on the Oscar nominated animated short film “Hair Love”) invited Deandre Arnold and his family to join her at the 92nd annual Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 9.© J M HAEDRICH/SIPA/ShutterstockAccording to Arnold’s family, the school claimed the teen’s hair violated the school district’s dress code.

While Union hasn’t given a sit-down about the controversy, she has referenced it in tweets, including revealing that she had a five-hour meeting with NBC in which she was able to share her unfiltered truth and thanking fans for support. She also alluded to it on a panel in December, saying, “Don’t be the happy negro that does the bidding of the status quo because you’re afraid,” without mentioning the show by name. Her husband, Dwyane Wade, has as well — more bluntly — called out the show for her firing.

It was announced in November that Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough were both out of the show — and a few days later there were reports about the toxic culture. It was reported that Union had differences with fellow judge and show creator Simon Cowell. Union reportedly got notes about her hair styles being “too black,” criticism for asking a contestant what their preferred pronouns were and blowback after she urged staffers to report an alleged racist joke made by Jay Leno to HR. There were a variety of other claims, including that Cowell smoked indoors, which is a labor code violation.

Union has seen a lot of support amid the controversy, including from Hough, who applauded her for speaking out. However, like Crews, Heidi Klum, who returned as a judge following Union’s departure, said she has “never seen anything that was weird or hurtful” on the show.” She later clarified her comments, but didn’t change her statement.
