Terry Crews Apologizes To Gabrielle Union
Terry Crews took to social media to apologize to his former America's Got Talent co-star Gabrielle Union, after publicly commenting on her ousting from the show. He tweeted, "I told @KevinHart4real a while ago, he needed 2 'acknowledge the pain of other people.' Right now I have to do the same thing. I want to apologize for the comments I made. I realize there are a lot of Black women hurt and let down by what I said and also by what I didn’t say. He continued with, ” hear you, I respect you and understand you. I am sorry and I am here to support you. I spoke from my own personal point of view without first taking into consideration someone else’s experience."
He added, “@itsgabrielleu, I want you to know it was never my intention to invalidate your experience— but that is what I did. I apologize. You have been through a lot in this business, and with that I empathize with the struggle toward fairness and equality in the workplace. You are a role model to the entire black community and In my desire to be professionally neutral as your co-worker, I should have at the very least understood you just needed my support. Sincerely, Terry Crews.”
Union's husband Dwayne Wade wasn't convinced that Crews' apology was sincere. He tweeted, "Someone please take @terrycrews phone."
