"I'm still waiting on a good answer to that question". He added that Union is "an advocate for our community and culture".

Howard Stern, who was a judge on AGT for four seasons from 2012 through 2015, didn't hold back when discussing the controversy on his SiriusXM radio show Monday. Stern called the NBC competition series "the ultimate example of a boys' club".

"I just can't be fake", Osbourne told the New York Post at the time. "Yes, women become 'difficult, ' when their insistence on a respectful and professional working environment, is ignored".

Union has gotten a great deal of support including from the Time's Up Now organization whose president and chief executive officer, Tina Tchen, released a statement on Monday.
