Heidi Klum discloses to Page Six that she got a reaction after she appeared to expel Gabrielle Union’s claims that she endured under a poisonous work environment while serving as a judge on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
In November, reports came out that Union had been given up from the situation after she stopped complaints of prejudice and wrong working environment conduct on set, which at that point went unaddressed.
At a Television Critics Association occasion in January, Klum — who was a judge on the show for six seasons — stated, “I’ve only had an amazing experience [on the show]. I can’t speak for Gabrielle. I didn’t experience the same thing. To me, everyone treats you with the utmost respect.”
Yet, on Wednesday at the amfAR gala at Cipriani Wall Street, Klum let everyone know, “A lot of people got mad at me. I was called, for example, ‘a white woman.’” She added, “I think it is important for everyone to speak their truth. I think that when there is a story, it should be told. I had a different story.”
Klum said, “I can only speak to what I saw — it has nothing to do with what color I am. I am a human so I just looked at what I saw.”
