Two weeks after being ousted from her job as judge on America’s Got Talent, Gabrielle Union met with NBC executives to discuss the racial bias, discrimination, and ‘toxicity that has become normalized’ in the work place.

‘We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday,’ 47-year-old Union tweeted on Wednesday.

‘I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth. I led with transparency and my desire and hope for real change.’
