Dropped from the show after just one season on November 22, Union is believed to have retained Hollywood attorney Bryan Freedman.

"How is it that Simon Cowell has orchestrated this?" the radio personality said.

The reports state that Union had asked producers to report an offensive joke made by American comedian Jay Leno, during the filming of his performance.

Union has gotten a great deal of support including from the Time's Up Now organization whose president and chief executive officer, Tina Tchen, released a statement on Monday. "This is disgusting behaviour 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".

"It's time for NBC to stop protecting powerful men at the expense of its workers and address its toxic workplace culture, once and for all".

I am at @itsgabrielleu.

Workplace cultures will continue to be toxic until there is unity and solidarity among all women. "You should not be penalized for trying to have a workplace that honors the rule of law in the workplace". Obviously this network feels like they can operate like this and it's okay. Mandel, who joined the show in 2010 for Season 5, is now the longest-serving judge. She was a judge on the talent competition from Season 2 through 7, announcing her departure in July 2012.

Association and individual judge Julianne Hough left "America's Got Talent" a month ago.

"It's hard, because everybody's experience on a show is different, and I was at that show for six years", Osbourne said.

She explained: "I was on the show before Howie".

Accusations of bias "couldn't be further from the truth", Micklethwait said , responding to Parscale's announcement. Dean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times , also criticized the Trump campaign's move.

"I left. And that's the fact". Simon owns the show and the time I was there, Simon was never on the show.

Besides, Gabrielle Union had also alleged that she was subjected to "excessive notes" on the way she carries herself, and was often told that her hair was "too black". So, I actually can't say.

She added: "I thought she was great". Good for you, God bless you. This is all you've got?

"This is disappointing Terry". "She stood up for you when you needed it and this is how you repay her?"

NBC, production company Fremantle and Cowell's company Syco issued their own statement Sunday.

"'America's Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show", it read.

'The judging and host line-up has been ceaselessly refreshed over the years and that's one in every of the causes for AGT's enduring reputation.

Union took issue with the offhand remark, which she deemed offensive to Asian people, and allegedly requested producers to raise it with human resources - a request that was not fulfilled, sources told Variety. We immediately reached out to Ms. Union's representatives when these reports came to light.

It sounds like Union is more interested in healing than litigation though. I was one of them that helped put the show where it was. Humbled and thankful, forever ❤.
