Vulture has more info on Gabrielle Union‘s firing from America’s Got Talent last Friday. Apparently she was labelled “difficult” from the beginning when she complained about Simon Cowell constantly (and illegally) smoking indoors, and she annoyed producers when she asked drag performers about their preferred pronouns.

Meanwhile, both she and her husband tweeted about the firing last night.

-There’s so much I love about Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood cover. The majority of actors featured are POC! It was shot by someone other than Annie Leibovitz! The ladies are fully clothed!
