Gabrielle Union Shows off Her Natural Hair in an Adorable Picture With Her Daughter

Gabrielle Union is seen rocking different hairstyles while working. That reportedly played a part in her having a hard time while working on America’s Got Talent. Now she is no longer a judge and is moving on to other projects. However, right now she is staying home like many other actors because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Union posted a cute picture with her daughter Kaavia on Instagram rocking her natural hair. Look at the post and what she had to say about her curls.

Union was a judge on America’s Got Talent, but was reportedly not asked to return for another season. There were several reported reasons for this decision.

Variety reported Jay Leno made a joke while filming on the show about a portrait with Simon Cowell and multiple dogs. He said the animals looked like something “on the menu at a Korean restaurant.” Union reportedly unsuccessfully pushed for producers to report this to human resources.

Her appearance along with Julianne Hough’s was reportedly criticized. Union would change her hairstyle often and her hair was reportedly considered “too black” for the audience.

SAG-AFTRA later announced it was investigating the claims around Union’s firing. A statement was given to Page Six:

We take issues of workplace health and safety very seriously. We immediately reached out to Ms. Union’s representatives when these reports came to light. It is our practice to work closely with members who reach out to us and their representatives in instances like this, as that usually affords the best protection and best resolution for the affected member.

Union shared a post about ‘unapologetically me’ after firing

The former judge wrote about being herself in an Instagram post not long after her reported firing. She posted a video of different photos with herself along with the song, “Flawless” by Beyoncé Knowles.

“Unapologetically me. Be comfortable and confident with your whole a** self. It might give others the fluuuxxx but never stop being you. You can shine on your own terms. And if you got something to say I don’t take notes rooted in anti-blackness. I love me as i am,” she wrote in the caption.

She posted a video of her natural video

Union posted a video on Instagram on April 4 showing off her natural hair. She captioned it with “When your natural locks appreciate the lock down. Unlocking the secret soon…#InTheLab #QuarantineNaturalHairChronicles #FrederickDouglassRealness.” The mother followed it up with another set of pictures with her daughter.

“See @kaaviajames mama’s got hair like yours!! When I took my braids out she was like now mom & baby both rocking their natural curls#QuarantineNaturalHairChronicles,” wrote the actress in the caption.

The family has been posting about their time together while social distancing to avoid the spread of the coronavirus. Union recently shared a video of her daughter Kaavia dancing to reggaeton with her parents and her husband, Dwyane Wade. The mother also shared a video of her in the pool with Kaavia, who is learning to swim.
