After the news that his character would be killed off in the upcoming season of Showtime’s The Chi, Jason Mitchell decided that “it’s time to make a statement”. Read on to see why Jason Mitchell Addresses Sexual Misconduct Allegations
CelebNMusic247.com report that just a day after reports surface that Jason Mitchell’s character on The Chi would be killed off he decided to address the allegations made against him.
Jason Mitchell decided that “it’s time to make a statement” on Instagram addressing the sexual allegations which led to his sudden departure from The Chi.
Mitchell broke his silence days after Showtime’s co-President of Entertainment Gary Levine informed Deadline that his character Brandon Johnson would be killed off.
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…
Mitchell was involved in an alleged inappropriate incident during Season 1 with co-star Tiffany Boone, which was addressed by putting the actor through HR training.
Jana Winograde, Levine’s fellow co-President of Entertainment at Showtime said:
We were made aware at the time that the allegations were made. [Fox 21] conducted [a] thorough investigation. After that investigation, we all made the decision together that it was appropriate at that time to give him some training and guidance on appropriate behavior on set.
Another incident involving Season 2 showrunner Ayanna Floyd may have been the last straw when it came to Mitchell. Floyd alleges that when she became “a target of his rage and inappropriateness,” she filed a complaint after she told THR that she did “everything I could to deal with his behavior.”
