Mitchell, who went from his breakout role as Easy-E in Straight Outta Compton to starring in The Chi, has been dropped by his agency, his management company, his Netflix movie Desperados and the Showtime drama over allegations of inappropriate behavior that have yet to be revealed. "I hear word of the incident involving the actor then reached producers of Showtime drama The Chi, recently picked up for a third season, on which Mitchell plays a lead," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "In light of the seriousness of the allegations, I hear the studio, Fox 21 TV Studios, opted not to pick up Mitchell’s option for next season." Andreeva reports that Mitchell had previously been "involved in an inappropriate behavior incident on the show, which had been resolved. Mitchell, an in-demand actor following his breakout role in Straight Outta Compton, was investigated for assault in 2016 when a woman publicly accused him of slamming her to the ground in a Boston hotel." Season 2 of The Chi focused on Mitchell's character's plan to open his own food truck business. Last week, Mitchell was nominated for an MTV Movie & TV Awards for best performance in a TV show.
