NBA star Dwyane Wade, in case you live under the rock, is Gabrielle Union‘s husband and our man crush Monday often. Since the Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough‘s firing from AGT, he has gone on a Twitter rampage that would put Kanye to shame. Also more sources have come out to talk about Simon Cowell being insensitive to Gabrielle’s allergies and refusing to put the butt down. Here are the crazy details:

First, Gabrielle Spoke Up About Racism in ‘AGT’

People can’t stop speculating what happened and why America’s Got Talent fired both the judges, an announcement that was made last Friday. Since the there have been claims of Gabrielle reporting the racist joke made by Jay Leno

During the taping, the former late night host made an anti-Asian joke that many found offensive, including Gabrielle.

According to Vulture, Union also allegedly told that a 10 year-old black rapper Dylan Gilmer wasn’t fit for the program because the producers wanted a contestant “America could get behind.” They ultimately went on to chose a group of white high-kicking dancers.


Gabrielle was Allergic to smoke and Simon Cowell Wouldn’t Stop

The Vulture report also revealed that Gabrielle is allergic to cigarette smoke and she filed a complaint about Simon Cowell smoking indoors. She was later informed by an NBC executive that they couldn’t stop him. The “AGT” exec producer and judge has reportedly smoked for years inside the show, which is against the law in California.

Bad boy Simon, but then again, that’s why he is Simon Cowell.


Dwyane Wade Lashes Out at AGT in Support of Gabrielle Union

“Men lie, Women lie, numbers don’t” Over this past year I’ve been approached by many people saying that my wife @itsgabrielleu is the main reason they’ve started watching #AGT or that they love her insight and sincerity on the show.

He went on to tweet:

So when i got the news that my wife (Gabrielle Union) was being fired—my first question was obviously why!? Iam still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she’s an advocate for our community and culture.

As proud as i were of her (Gabrielle Union) being selected as a judge on #AGT— Iam even more proud of her standing up for what she stands for and that’s US.

So to you @itsgabrielleu on not losing sight of the lessons we’ve talked about teaching our daughter and for kicking ass while you were on that platform. Number 1 judge on one of the biggest shows in the world.

Where do we get our own Dwyane Wade? Asking for a friend obvs. What do you think really went down here? Are you team Gabrielle or team Simon? Let us know in the comments down below!
