Michael Strahan Felt He Couldn’t ‘Speak Up’ at ABC as a Black Man: Report

“Good Morning America” anchor Michael Strahan said in a June 4 town hall on racism with ABC and Disney employees that he felt he couldn’t “speak up” as a Black man for fear of reprisal.

Strahan, who has been an on-air talent for numerous shows at the ABC network, including “Live with Kelly and Michael” and its spinoff with Sara Haines and Keke Palmer, said “some very tense situations with executives who got argumentative and loud on the show, and he was very aware he couldn’t speak up or raise his voice as he was worried he would be seen as threatening,” the New York Post’s Page Six reported.

The town hall was similar to others hosted by WarnerMedia, CNN and Condé Nast amid police killings of unarmed Black men and subsequent protests across the country for racial justice.
