Jason Mitchell Dropped From ‘The Chi’, Fired From New Netflix Movie & Released From Agency & Management Company
Jason Mitchell’s career has taken a turn for the worse. According to reports, the 32-year-old actor is facing allegations from inappropriate behavior, which has resulted in him being fired from a Netflix film, released from a hit Showtime series and dismissed by his management.
Jason was a breakout star in the 2015 film, Straight Outta Compton.
Reportedly, he has been dropped from new Netflix movie called Desperados, which he was the lead of. Allegedly an off-set incident was brought to the attention of producers. They are said to have investigated the incident, which led to him being fired from the project.
The specific of the situation are unclear, but he’s reportedly been dropped from Showtime’s “The Chi” and will not return for a third season, as the network opted not to pick up his option for next season.
On the Lena Waithe-created series, he plays Brandon, a popular young man striving to better himself and open his own restaurant.
Reportedly, he was also quickly fired by UTA and Authentic.
In 2016, Jason is said to have previously been involved in an inappropriate behavior incident on the show, which had been resolved. He was investigated for assault when a woman publicly accused him of slamming her to the ground in a Boston hotel.
Jason, nor his camp, have yet to comment.
