GABRIELLE UNION SAYS COVID-19 AND ONGOING RACIAL INJUSTICE HAS HER PTSD IN 'OVERDRIVE': Gabrielle Union has revealed how the pandemic and ongoing racial violence against Black communities has weighed on her in the last months.

It’s been this way since ’92. It’s just something I do; second nature.”
