When asked whether Union was dealt with decently, Leno just stated: "I don't have a clue, however I believe she's an incredible young lady".

"Not only did Union reportedly endure and witness racist and inappropriate behavior - including racially-insensitive comments and excessive criticism about her physical appearance - but it also appears she was punished for speaking out: the company labeled her as "difficult" before ousting her from the show altogether", the statement read. It was announced last month that both Union and Julianne Hough would not return for season 15.

It was recently claimed the "Being Mary Jane" star is set to sit with the outside legal team recently retained by the network to talk about her concerns over the "toxicity" surrounding the show.

"Obviously, there wasn't anybody of colour on the panel when I was there".

Osbourne then argued again AGT and said he does not regret anyone for what they earn, but it is a kids club and the boys get special privileges. So, I actually can't say. Fellow celebs, including Ellen Pompeo and Debra Messing, have spoken up on Union's behalf, resulting in the actress sending a public thank-you message to her supporters.

"We take health and safety problems in the workplace very seriously".

"But when I was there it was, you know, a great show to work on", she added.

"NBC and Fremantle productions have responded to the controversy, saying in a statement: "'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 ceaselessly refreshed over the years and that's one in every of the causes for AGT's enduring reputation.
