The REAL Reason Jason Mitchell Was Fired From The Chi


This week fans of the Showtime series The Chi were shocked to learn its star Jason Mitchell had been fired and dropped by his agents and managers [click here if you missed that].

Now we know why...

From The Hollywood Reporter
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.

Sooo.....we don't know why, it's still unclear. They didn't fire him because of her, she QUIT because they wouldn't fire him!! WHY DID HE FINALLY GET LET GO?? He must have harassed the wrong 1, or 2 or 3.

Other women on the show complained and kept complaining.

What a fucking dumb ass., Did the Weinstein saga not teach these muthafuckkas anything? Russell Simmons fled the country to avoid being charged with rape, and this z-list jackass thought he could get away with harassing women on the set.

Oh black man still good at fucking around, and fucking up a good thing, I see. This asshole played Easy-E in "Straight outta Compton" other than that I don't recall him having much of an career. The Chi is a good show, a steady pay check and he had to act all rapey...

Dumbass.

He can kiss his career goodbye. So many black actors want that big break and this fool squanders his opportunities. He needs some serious mental help.

Countdown to "Oh, I am a sex addict and I am going to rehab for it. Whoa is me. Please forgive me!"

Watch. Meanwhile his coworker at "The Chi" quit to get away from the sexual harrassment and was shamed for reporting it.

These fucking predator type men, who prey on women need to be taken out back and shot once in the back of the head. These sick bastards!!! I hope she sues the fucking show, how many women did it take to finally fire this predatory asshole. I hope he's found in a ditch somewhere with a bullet in his head.

@5:28 You don't know the difference between a job and reality?
Yeah you are confused just like Jason Mitchell apparently was.

HE WAS AXED BECAUSE HE HARASSED A HISPANIC ACTRESS THAT WAS A CO-STAR ON THE NETFLIX PROJECT "DESPARADOS". THE INCIDENT NHAPPENED OFF SET AND WAS INVESTIGATED. THE PAST HISTORY OF INCIDENTS PROBABLY DID'NT HELP MATTERS...
