Mitchell has broken his silence on his firing in May from the Showtime series, telling The Breakfast Club "there actually was no situation" with actress Tiffany Boone, who accused him of inappropriate behavior and that reports that she left the show because of him are ridiculous, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mitchell blamed the sexual misconduct allegation on former The Chi showrunner Ayanna Floyd Davis. "She had a lot to say, but she was the only person that ever made a statement at all," Mitchell said of Davis. He also blamed his ouster on Disney, who became the owner of The Chi's producer Fox 21 as a part of the 21st Century Fox deal.
