Terry Crews first apologized to Gabrielle Union back in February over comments he made about how he handled her gripe with "America's Got Talent," and now he's returned.
Earlier this year, Terry Crews kicked up some dust following his comments about America's Got Talent. The popular competition series has been at war with former judge Gabrielle Union after she alleges she was fired for reporting instances of unhealthy workplace conditions, racism, and misogyny. She recently filed a formal complaint against NBC and AGT producers, and although Terry Crews apologized to Gabrielle Union back in February, he's addressing her once again.

After Union's allegations against the show became public, Crews, who has hosted the show, sat down for an interview. He was asked about his experiences and shared that contrary to what Union faced, he loved AGT and it was a wonderful work environment. He was accused of being tone-deaf and faced backlash, but he remained firm that he doesn't care about what anyone thinks of his opinions, not even members of his family.
He would later apologize, and now he's returned once again now that the Black Lives Matter and George Floyd protests have him doing a bit of reflection. "The murder of George Floyd has forced me to search my heart to find out what more I can do, as a human being, as a citizen, and more specifically as a Black man, to ensure our community can not only survive but thrive in this new world," he tweeted. "Whites have always had privilege in a society that has systemic racism built in, a fact that has been proven over and over again with the senseless deaths of unarmed Black men and women— with no one being held accountable."
"But I also see that I am privileged as man, in a society that also has sexism built in. This privilege carries over into my community as a Black man in relationship with Black women," Crews continued. "It is in this light I want to make further amends with Black women, and in particular @itsgabrielleu for not recognizing the privilege I have - especially in the workplace- and adding this fact to my earlier apology. If we are to move forward as a people we must do the work required to heal the relationships in our community first. To whom much is given, much is required. I have a huge responsibility —and I vow to honor it."
