Terry Crews Beggs For Gabrielle Union To Forgive Him
Terry Crews implies no matter how many times he has to make it right he will do it. A “third public apology” went out to Gabrielle Union on Saturday after she again slammed Terry Crews this week Union called out his lack of support amid her claims of discrimination at America’s Got Talent.
Gabrielle Union made a statement about Crews opinion of her real life on Jemele Hill’s podcast last week. “People hit me all day long and are like, what’s happening? And the only thing I know for sure is that Terry Crews gets three checks from NBC. So, I don’t know if being worried about job stability — which listen, we all know that if you speak up about racism and white supremacy, you absolutely can be shown the door,” she said.
The response was towards an interview Terry Crews had back in January on the Today show. Crews voiced against Gabrielle Union’s statement of “racist and misogynistic” experience at the work place, in opposition Crews stated that he “never” experienced this. “It was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment,” he said at the time. “The top 10 acts were Asian, women, older, younger, Black, white — it was everything in the gamut.”
Union was never upset at the fact that Crews had hot had the same experience, but more so at the way he responded to her situation. Union said, “If you saw something, say something.” “If you didn’t have my experience… you also have an option to say, ‘I believe Gab, I just had a different experience.’ End of story. You don’t have to do a press tour where your sole objective is to discredit and malign me. You know, I’ve been in Hollywood a very long time. There’s very little that surprises me, but that was very disappointing for sure.”
As this is Terry Crews third attempt to apologize, he initially issued his first apology In a June interview with ET, saying that he regrets not supporting Union when she spoke out about her negative experiences at AGT. He said he’s “the wrong guy to ask about being on America’s Got Talent because I love it.” “I had to understand that I’m looking at this thing from a lens of male privilege,” Crews explained. “Where men and women are treated differently on sets.”
Hopefully Crews has learned about speaking on someone else’s life experience and has learned to acknowledge other people’s truths.
