Top Hollywood actor Jason Mitchell was fired from The Chi, after he was accused of sexually harassing his co-star, Tiffany Boone.
Jason Mitchell is accused of harassing more than one of his co-stars on The Chi, including Boone. He has reportedly been terminated from the show as well as two upcoming projects he was set to star in. He was also dropped from his management company.
Now some fans of Jason's are harassing Tiffany on social media, for what they are calling "snitching."
Per sources close to the set, The Chi co-star Tiffany Boone and one other actress filed misconduct complaints against Mitchell—and despite HR training, the alleged behavior persisted. As such, Boone reportedly requested to be released from the series. In a new report from the Hollywood Reporter, The Chi’s showrunner, Ayanna Floyd, has released a statement regarding the claims against the 32-year-old actor. Floyd reportedly filed a complaint against Mitchell herself.
Here is a sample of the harassment:
Yesterday, the show's producer Lena Waithe spoke out about Jason's alleged misconduct
A source close to Waithe told The Hollywood Reporter that she was only made aware of Mitchell’s alleged harassment only after the first season of The Chi wrapped. In Waithe's statement to THR, she focuses on one of Mitchell's alleged victims, Tiffany Boone.
Lena told the Hollywood Reporter:
"I think Tiffany is a wonderful actress and an extremely brave woman. I wish her nothing but success in the future. I look forward to getting back to work on season three,"
