Union uploaded ]a picture on Instagram] (https://www.instagram.com/p/B5bUS3Dl_jj/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link) of her husband, Dwyane Wade, step-son, Zion Malachi Airamis, and daughter Kaavia James. Gabrielle wore a yellow dress with ruffled sleeves, and the family posed on a spiral staircase.
She captioned the picture, "Grateful ❤❤❤ Happy Thanksgiving good people. To all the friends and family that have my back and all the friends and family I've never met who show love and support when everyone is looking and when no one is looking...All praise, gratitude and thankfulness"
Gabrielle Union has been as vocal as some of the contestants on 'America's Got Talent' about how she's been mistreated there. She began exposing NBC's hit competition show when she was let go after judging for one season. She accused them of calling her difficult for supporting a 10-year-old black rapper over a white dance team and her hairstyles "too black for their audience."
Gabrielle Union didn't let that get her down this Thanksgiving. She took a break from the drama to share what she's really grateful for to the world.
Since the news broke out, many stars spoke out to support Union. Female actresses who work for shows on NBC currently are infuriated with the network.
"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," 'Grey's Anatomy' star Ellen Pompeo tweeted. 'Will and Grace's Debra Messing backed Pompeo.
Gabrielle Union's husband has stood by her side throughout the whole debacle.
"‘Men lie, Women lie, numbers don’t’ Over this past year I’ve been approached by many people saying that my wife [Gabrielle] is the main reason they’ve started watching #AGT or that they love her insight and sincerity on the show," he tweeted pointing out a compelling argument. Union has a bigger following than her male co-judges and the show relies heavily on popular votes.
Now, that Union enjoyed her day off, time will only tell how the 'AGT' drama will unfold.
"Thank you for this @EllenPompeo. This is disgusting behavior from a network that has been my professional home for decades. Yes, women become “difficult,” when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored. Addressing a hostile work environment is inconvenient when there is a huge money-making machine that is involved. It is cowardice, greed, and protection of the status quo revealed. Being 'hands-off,' is inexcusable and reflects a laissez faire attitude toward systemic racism and sexism," [Messing tweeted.] (https://twitter.com/DebraMessing/status/1200176261567352832)
