Jason has previously been defiant about the misconduct allegations and after reports surfaced that his character would be killed off “The Chi” he told fans they shouldn’t “believe what they read in the media.”

“I think it’s time to make a statement. To everyone commenting without any knowledge of what’s going please stop…and to all my supporters I appreciate you all and I’m sorry I will no longer be in (“The Chi”)..but don’t believe what you read in the media or this fake a** post,” wrote Mitchell in an IG comments section.

“I’ve never spent a lot of time on social media,” Boone wrote with beautiful penmanship, “but I wanted everyone that has sent me positivity over the last few weeks to know – I FELT IT – I am so appreciative of all the love, prayers, and support. I love you! I thank you!”

Isn’t her handwriting incredible? Do you think Tiffany will ever tell the details of what happened on set? Would you if you were her?

“The Chi” Showrunner Speaks On Jason Mitchell

More details are surfacing about those Jason Mitchell misconduct claims. After people expressed doubt about Tiffany Boone’s claims that he costar sexually harassed her on set, the show’s second-season showrunner is making some damning accusations.

Ayanna Floyd told The Hollywood Reporter that she personally filed a complaint about Mitchell and was a “target of his rage and inappropriateness.” She’s also directly contrasting claims that Lena Waithe, “The Chi’s” creator/EP, was unaware of Jason’s actions until the second season of the show.

According to Floyd, “EVERYONE was well aware of Jason’s behavior,” Lena included, and Floyd was made aware of it at the beginning of season two.

 

“When I took the helm in season two, it was Lena who informed me of the issues between Jason Mitchell and Tiffany Boone from season one, and that Tiffany was thinking of leaving the show because of it,” says Floyd to THR.

“As a result of this information, I discussed Tiffany’s claims with the studio’s HR department and set up HR presentations for the writers, cast and crew. Ultimately, everyone was well aware of Jason’s behavior and his multiple HR cases, including Lena, the creator and an executive producer of the show, who is very involved at the studio and network level.”

Adds Floyd, “As showrunner, I did everything I could to deal with his behavior, by speaking with the studio’s HR department multiple times and instructing one actress to call HR herself, before I became a target of his rage and inappropriateness, and had to report him to HR, as well.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s story is very detailed, and in it, they note that Lena previously spoke out in alignment with the “Me Too” movement. Lena said if one of her show’s stars acted inappropriately, they’d be promptly “killed off the series.” 

“So why didn’t Mitchell’s character go down in a volley of onscreen bullets?” wonders The Hollywood Reporter. 

“I’ve been very involved in Time’s Up and that movement, and for season two, we’re making sure that women feel safe,” Waithe told The Hollywood Reporter in June 2018. “[I]f you want to play that game and be disrespectful or misbehave on set with an actress or anyone, I’ll happily call Showtime and say, ‘This person has to go,’ and you will get shot up and it’ll be a wonderful finale.”

Lena sent in a statement about the ongoing drama surrounding her show and she praised Tiffany Boone for coming forward. She declined to say much else.

“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.”

There’s lots more to unpack here like Mitchell reportedly being given a “second chance”—until his actions got him booted from Netflix’s “Desperados.”

Sources told THR almost immediately after Mitchell came onset for the film actresses complained about his behavior.

“There were two incidents in four days,” says an insider to THR.

After “Desperados”, “The Chi” pulled the plug on Jason Mitchell too.

Jason Mitchell Facing Misconduct Allegations

A popular “Straight Outta Compton” actor is the latest star to be hit with misconduct claims.
Jason Mitchell was dropped from a popular Showtime drama, a Netflix film, and a talent agency amid allegations that he acted inappropriately.

Deadline broke the news that the 32-year-old actor was dropped by his agency, UTA; management company, Authentic Talent & Literary Management; “Desperados” a Netflix film he’d been cast in as a lead, and Lena Waithe’s “The Chi.”

Details were at first skimpy about Mitchell’s alleged allegations, but The Hollywood Reporter released an extensive story detailing claims that he had several sexual harassment claims made about him.

A source told THR that his co-star Tiffany Boone, who plays Jerrika, his character Brandon’s girlfriend, complained about his behavior and was at one point so worried that she brought her fellow actor fiance Marque Richardson on set with her.

“A source with knowledge of the Showtime series says Tiffany Boone, who played Mitchell’s girlfriend on The Chi, was among several actresses on the series who had issues with Mitchell. She made repeated complaints of sexual harassment and allegedly felt so unsafe with her co-star that at times her fiance, Dear White People actor Marque Richardson, came to set when she shot scenes with him.

Boone declined to comment.

The source also says Boone ultimately informed producers at Fox 21 that she could no longer work with Mitchell. Initially, he was retained while she was released at her request to pursue other projects. Other actresses on the series also were said to have had problems with Mitchell. It’s unclear what finally led the studio to act.”

As for Netflix’s upcoming film “Desperados”, producers reportedly heard about an alleged off-set incident that ultimately led to Mitchell’s termination. His costars Nasim Pedrad, Anna Camp and Robbie Amell also ALL allegedly complained about his behavior.

Wowwww.
So far Mitchell is remaining silent on the misconduct claims, but surely that will change.
