Actress Gabrielle Union has reacted to a Times report on Wednesday that contained details of royal staffers' allegations that Meghan Markle bullied them. 

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare for their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on March 7, they are facing the heat following a Times report that accused Meghan of mistreating royal staffers. 

The royal couple was expecting a reaction from Buckingham Palace after they agreed to grant the tell-all interview, but they probably did not expect such an allegation against Meghan.

A source told Harper's Bazaar that Harry and Meghan knew things would get ugly in the run-up to the Oprah special but see the obvious attempt at destroying the latter's character as distressing and upsetting. 

Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace has promised to investigate the allegations of abuse against Meghan as it does not and will not tolerate bullying or harassment.

Since the Times report made headlines, there have been many reactions from fans and celebrities alike, with many stars throwing their weight behind Meghan amid the bullying accusations. 

Union called out actor and comedian Terry Crews, who co-starred with her on "AGT," saying he did not show support for her.

Gabrielle Union led the teeming support for the duchess. She reposted the original Times report on Wednesday and made her opinion about it clear for all to see. 

The actress reacted to the report by tweeting an iconic meme featuring a GIF of Christine Taylor's dramatic eye roll from the 1995  "Brady Bunch" movie, adding the quote "Sure, Jan."

Union also replied to Halle Berry's tweet, where the latter wrote, "It's Still Protect Black Women." In her reply, Union tweeted, "Always." Union has never been shy about speaking out against racism in Hollywood.

She raised headlines when she exited from NBC's "America's Got Talent." Her exit came amid reports alleging her contract was not picked up because of an incident involving a racist joke and her clash with Simon Cowell over his smoking on set.

An investigation followed her exit from the show. However, she discredited the investigations, noting that it was not independent as NBC and production companies Fremantle and Syco paid for it and controlled it.

However, the companies did not confirm if they paid for the investigations. Later, Union called out actor and comedian Terry Crews, who co-starred with her on "AGT," saying he did not show support for her.

This was amid her accusations that a toxic and racist environment existed on the show's set. Two days after she called him out, Crews apologized to Union and promised reconciliation between the world and the culture he grew up in.
