Tiffany Boone Addresses Leaving “The Chi” Amid Jason Mitchell Misconduct Claims
Tiffany Boone, the actress who left the Showtime tv series ‘The Chi’ after alleging harassment from costar Jason Mitchell, recently addressed her departure via Instagram. According to the actress, it had nothing to do with Jason.
“In full transparency, I was aware that some news was coming, but work had allowed me to focus elsewhere,” she wrote. “I’d heard whispers that my previous co-star had been fired from a new project and subsequently fired from the show we worked on together, but I had finished my time on The Chi in November of 2018 and had already been working on a new series for several months.”
However, she did address the work environment on ‘The Chi’. Tiffany claims even after the HR intervention, the morale on set was still not much of a vibe. “I’d already spoken to HR and high-level producers about a few of my concerns after season one,” she said.
“I returned for season two, feeling assured that HR training would set the show on the right track. However, once we started filming, I quickly realized that not everyone was interested in creating a work environment that was conducive to each person feeling safe, seen, and heard.”
What do y’all think? Was the timing just a coincidence or did Jason play even a slight part in Tiffany leaving?
