Eva Longoria is speaking out about Gabrielle Union‘s controversial firing from America’s Got Talent.
The 44-year-old Desperate Housewives star took to Instagram on Monday (December 2) to voice her support for the 47-year-old former judge and slam NBC.
“What @gabunion experienced on set at @NBC’s #AmericasGotTalent is unacceptable,” Eva Longoria wrote. “It’s time for @NBCUniversal to commit to long-term, concrete action to fix its toxic workplace culture and ensure safety and equity for all its workers. Add your name through @timesupnow Instagram story. #TimeUp on the imbalance of power. ✊🏼”
Time’s Up has created a petition asking “for NBC to stop protecting powerful men at the expense of its workers and address its toxic workplace culture, once and for all.”
“TIME’S UP applauds Union for her courage and once again calls on NBC to take these allegations seriously and take concrete steps to foster a safe and equitable workplace,” the group said in a statement along with the petition. “Union’s experience shows that NBCUniversal still has a lot of work to do to change its culture, so discrimination, harassment, and retaliation are no longer tolerated at the company.”
