Nope they only ever had a one series contract and it's obvious they quit with the replacement judges they named days before they had to film,

Even if they did sack them it makes them look bad for sacking people who complained about racism

They were fired for speaking out about racism apparently.

Jay Leno said something about Asians eating dogs while a Korean worker was on set and was offended and Gabrielle and Jilianne raised an issue over it to go to HR and apparently it was never resolved or even discussed.

Also Gabrielle was told her hairstyles were 'too black' and told to change several times. Julianne hasn't said much as she is still under contract with NBC but apparently she was upset backstage several times after producers told her to lose weight and dress differently.

AGT is trash. Needs cancelling.

If they only had a one series contract they didn't quit or get fired.

Okay maybe fired isn’t the word but they were ~removed~ not by their own volition. Saying quit makes it seem like they voluntarily left which isn’t true.

Another incident involved a male contestant from Italy whose audition involved impressions of various singers. When the contestant was preparing to do an impression of Beyoncé, he slipped on black gloves, which Union read as an attempt to indicate a change in skin tone. She referred to them as “blackface hands,” according to two sources, and voted to eliminate the contestant. Neither of these segments aired, and in both cases, Union was concerned that staff members, and in the case of the male singer, the audience, would be exposed to racist or racially insensitive performances.
