Gabrielle Union invites 'American Gods' star Orlando Jones to 'chat' after...

Gabrielle Union are looking to talk to the actor Orlando Jones after he said he was fired from the "American Gods" program produced by the same company behind "America's Got Talent".

On Saturday, 51-year-old Jones posted a video on Twitter claiming he was fired because the show's new writers felt his character sent the "wrong message to black America."

"American Gods" is based on a novel of the same name. Executives at the show's producer, Fremantle, said in a statement to Deadline that Jones's departure had nothing to do with running, but simply that his character did not appear in the third season of the show.

Jones again tweeted, this time, calling several former cast members "America's Got Talent", which Fremantle also produced.

"Correction: I was fired on September 10, 2019 as @itsgabrielleu @OfficialMelB @NickCannon @heidiklum, everyone said @FremantleUS is a nightmare," Jones said in the tweet. "They treated him like a second-class citizen for doing his job very well. Stay tuned. More to come."

Union recently held a "productive" discussion with NBC – the network that displays "AGT" – and the program's producers regarding its departure, which led to an internal investigation.

Variety broke the news Union's departure from "AGT" alongside Judge Julianne Hough and, days later, Union husband Dwyane Wade alleged on Twitter that she was fired.
