Terry Crews issued an apology to Gabrielle Union for not publicly supporting it after its departure from America's Got Talent and subsequent allegations of racism against NBC.
In the days after her exit from the Talent Show, Cruz seemed to distance himself very quickly amid the battle for union with the network. Appearing on the Jemele Hill Is Unbothered Podcast from Spotify, Union criticized the actor for taking a press tour to express his experience as a host to AGT. Union said that his appearance on the Today program specifically was aimed at "discrediting and abusing" her character, according to the deadline.
"You don't have to take a press tour where your only goal is to tarnish and mistreat me. You know, I was in Hollywood a long time ago. There is little that surprises me, but that was very disappointing."

"People beat me all day and said, what's going on? The only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC. So, I don't know if you're worried about job stability – which is something he listens to, we all know that if You talked about racism and white supremacy, so you could appear in front of you at all. " The union said. "I don't know if that's the motive."
She cited Kross's recent criticism of Black Lives Matter and tweets warning of the rise of black supremacy, noting that his recent anti-black stance made clear that he was not an ally of her during the show.
"Based on his recent actions, do you really think that Terry Cruz was an ally, and was useful, was it a soundboard? I think Terry Cruz explains to us who he is and what he does in times of adversity and this is not solidarity."
When the White Chicks star caught on her last notes, he moved to Twitter to make an apology to Union directly.
"This will be my third year apology to the Gabriel Union. If a fourth is needed, I will continue to apologize and push for reconciliation between the world and most importantly the culture in which I grew up," Cruz wrote. Adding, "I'm sorry, itsgabrielleu."
Meanwhile, the NBC investigation of the union's accusations of racism concluded that it was not a victim of discrimination.
"At the end of the day, the work I'm doing to make sure NBC is a fairer and more equitable workplace will benefit you (the crew) as well," Union said on the podcast program this week. "So it's okay to eat pills and let me do something and get away from the road. If you're not going to help, get out of the way. If you don't feel financial comfortable, or spiritual comfort or you don't agree to that, but in the end it will benefit from a more workplace Safer and fairer than I got stuck in my neck and kicked out of it, I know? Instead of working actively against progress. ”
