Gabrielle Union has held a “productive” meeting with NBC executives over her America’s Got Talent firing.

The 47-year-old actress has left the talent competition after just one season amid reports she had complained about a “toxic” culture and racial bias and discrimination during her time on the judging panel, and she spent five hours on Tuesday meeting with network representatives in order to push for “real change” on the show.

“I was able to, again, express my unfiltered truth.”

She tweeted on Wednesday: “We had a lengthy 5-hour, and what I thought to be, productive meeting yesterday.

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

NBC have promised to make a “further investigation” into the Bring It On star’s complaints and hailed the meeting as “candid and productive”.

They said in a statement: “The initial conversation was candid and productive.

“While there will be a further investigation to get a deeper understanding of the facts, we are working with Gabrielle to come to a positive resolution.”
