Jason Mitchell, one of the stars of SHOWTIME's 'The Chi' has been dropped from the popular series following claims of misconduct.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tiffany Boone, who played Mitchell's girlfriend on 'The Chi,' was among several actresses on the series who had issues with Mitchell. Boone reportedly made several complaints of sexual harassment and allegedly felt so unsafe with Mitchell that at times her fiance, 'Dear White People' actor Marque Richardson, came to set when she shot scenes with him. She later told producers of the show that she could not continue to work with him.
Deadline reports that Mitchell has also been dropped by his agency, UTA; management company, Authentic Talent & Literary Management as well as a Netflix movie he had been cast in as a lead, 'Desperados.'
