Terry Crews shows even newer colors, finally says something after Gabrielle Union shaded him for throwing her under the bus when she accused America’s Got Talent, He says the only Woman he cares about is his wife.
Terry Crews is under fire, and continuously digging a hole for himself and showing newer colors.
Grabrielle Union had taken to Twitter and shaded Terry Crews who said he could speak on the racism she said she experienced on America’s Got Talent situation because he’s a black man, and said he didn’t experience any racism on the show in his 20 years there, while also praising his co-workers.
After Terry Crews told the Today show he didn’t experience any racism, Gabrielle Union took to Twitter to say she’s about to spill tea and speak on the situation as well.
She also shaded Terry Crews and mentioned that someone threw her under the bus when she spoke HER personal truth.
Here are her posts:
Black Women as usual came together and supported Gabrielle.
Today, Terry Crews took to Twitter and posted this after days of not posting anything except a AGT promotional post:
Would’ve been easier to just tweet that you used black women for clout and now that everyone knows your name you feel like you’re too UP to be bothered with us js— Bri (@BriMalandro) January 27, 2020

This is the same man who said this last year when black women supported him:
There’s a difference between not lying, and not speaking. If a friend of yours tells you they experienced racism somewhere, and people turn to you because you’re black knowing you’ll be used as a reference and weapon later on and ask you “she said she experienced racism, did you?” And you don’t only say “oh nope, I didn’t, in fact they are great people, they’re so diverse, they’re so great, I’m black so I can speak on it” that’s much different. I’m getting mad I have to keep explaining something so extremely simple.
If a woman is abused in a facility, and a man turns to another woman and asks her “were you abused” while that woman knows the first woman is trying to get justice for the abuse, and tells the people “well, I ain’t get abused, these people are great, and I’m a woman and I can speak on it, they’re so great to me”, that’s not just speaking on your experience, you’ve taken it much much further and now invalidating when you could’ve just said nothing, or “I won’t speak on this, even if I didn’t experience anything, racism still be experienced by someone else.” He wasn’t speaking on some random day where nothing happened, he brought it up specifically for this case. There were two options; say nothing, or protect. Neither were done.
Ironically when he said he was sexually abused, Gabrielle Union, or any woman could’ve easily went on LIVE TV and said, “well, I’m a woman so I can speak on this, I was there, and no man abused me, they’re actually great people.”
Here’s the previous article we wrote where Terry went on the Today show to praise them, and say he never experienced racism there:
Terry Crews spoke about his experience at America’s Got Talent in comparison to what Gabrielle Union says she went through. He’s now under fire because Gabrielle Union was one his biggest vocal supporters in his sexual assault.
During an interview on the Today Show, Terry Crews was asked about the Gabrielle Union controversy at America’s Got Talent.
Variety published a report where Gabrielle Union stated that the network wasn’t picking her contract back up after they’ve made an insensitive black joke, and also stated that her hairstyles were too black for the show.
In the interview Terry Crews stated that he had no problems of racism at the show, and it just wasn’t his experience.
He said he can speak on the racism because he’s a black man.
“First of all, I can’t speak for sexism because I’m not a woman, but I can speak on behalf of any racism comments. That was never my experience on ‘America’s Got Talent.’”
“In fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment.”

People brought up that Gabrielle Union very much supported Terry Crews and stood by him when he accused a Hollywood executive of sexual assault.
