After the entire America’s Got Talent fiasco earlier last week, host of the show Terry Crews has now issued an apology to Gabrielle Union. The judge has shared that the show was racist and sexist, which Terry denied, invalidating her experience while her time on the show. He had earlier defended the show and shared that he never felt discriminated on America’s Got Talent, reported Deadline. In a series of tweets, the actor apologized. He said, “I told Kevin Hart a while ago that he needed to acknowledge the pain of other people. Right now I have to do the same thing.”

Terry continued, “I want to apologize for the comments I made. I realize there are a lot of black women hurt and let down by what I said and also by what I didn’t say. I hear you, I respect you and understand you. I am sorry and I am here to support you. I spoke from my own personal point of view without first taking into consideration someone else’s experience. I allowed disrespectful comments directed at me and my family to cause me to react angrily instead of responding thoughtfully. This certainly caused more harm, and it is my hope that I can amend any pain I have caused to those who were hurt by my words.”

He also addressed Gabrielle directly and added, “ I want you to know it was never my intention to invalidate your experience– but that is what I did. I apologize. You have been through a lot in this business, and with that I empathize with the struggle toward fairness and equality in the workplace.” Earlier, when asked to comment on Gabrielle’s claims, he had said, “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. In fact, it was the most diverse place I have ever been in my 20 years of entertainment.”
