Union and fellow judge Julianne Hough will not return for the second season of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” which premieres January 6.
CNN has not independently confirmed these allegations and has reached out to reps for Union and “America’s Got Talent” for comment.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star blasted the network in a series of tweets.
The “Will & Grace” star echoed Pompeo’s sentiment.
The actress, who stars on NBC’s “The Good Place,” said the show should bring Union back with a raise.
The singer’s message was short and ended with a love heart emoji aimed at Union.
“Thank you for this @EllenPompeo. be better @nbc we’re with you @itsgabrielleu,” she said.
The 2020 presidential hopeful also chimed in.
Union’s husband said he still has questions about her exit from the show.
“… When i got the news that my wife was being fired — my first question was obviously why!? I am still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she’s an advocate for our community and culture. As proud as i were of her being selected as a judge on #AGT— I am even more proud of her standing up for what she stands for and that’s US.”
Other celebrities, including actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, also expressed their support.
Union thanked fans on social media — but did not provide any details on her exit from the show.
“So many tears, so much gratitude,” she wrote Thursday. “THANK YOU! Just when you feel lost, adrift, alone … you got me up off the ground. Humbled and thankful, forever.”
In a statement to People, a spokesperson for NBC and Fremantle said the network and the producers take any issues on set seriously.
“America’s Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show. The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity,” it said.
