gabrielle union agt hair

Gabrielle Union's AGT hair firing was not the only reason why she was let go from the show. Celebrities show their support and fans revive the #blackhairchallenge on Twitter.

According to Variety, Gabrielle Union was fired from AGT because “her rotating hairstyles were “too black” for the audience of “AGT.” But that is not the only reason why Gabrielle Union was fired from America's Got Talent.

Outside of receiving letters about her hair, Variety reports Gabrielle had been speaking up about other inappropriate comments that were made on the set of AGT. One involving a racial joke made by Jay Leno directed towards the Asian culture.

When Gabrielle insisted producers report the joke to NBC human resources, she was suddenly faced with the beginning of her cut from the second season of "America's Got Talent: The Champions."

 "I had a wonderful time on ‘America’s Got Talent,’ I loved working with the cast, crew and producers. I am happy to continue my working relationship with NBC,”  Variety reported.

CNN gathered several celebrities in support of Gabrielle Union including; Dwyane Wade, Julian Castro, Ariana Grande, Jameela Jamil, Debra Messing, and Ellen Pompeo. Each expressing their support for Gabrielle and concern for NBC.

 "Thank you for this @EllenPompeo. be better @nbc we're with you @itsgabrielleu." - Ariana Grande

Gabrielle didn't let the controversy interrupt her holidays as she uploaded a few Thanksgiving Instagram posts with one captioning,

"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."

But the story doesn't stop there. Fans are now taking to Twitter reviving the #blackhairchallenge in support of Gabrielle Union.
