The former Desperate Housewives star, took to Instagram on Monday to support her friend Gabrielle Union, about allegations of racism behind the scenes at AGT.
“What @gabunion experienced on set at @NBC’s #AmericasGotTalent is unacceptable,” she tweeted along with an article about Time’s Up’s response to Union’s termination. “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.”
