Actress Gabrielle Union felt “lost and alone” after being axed from the ‘America’s Got Talent’ judging panel.

She tweeted: “So many tears, so much gratitude. THANK YOU! Just when you feel lost, adrift, alone … you got me up off the ground. Humbled and thankful, forever. (sic)”

It was reported that Gabrielle and Julianne had raised issues about racist jokes and comments about her physical appearance.
