Four days before Boone makes her debut with Jordan Peele's Amazon series Hunters, the actress took to Instagram to speak out for the first time about her exit from Showtime's The Chi amid misconduct allegations against Mitchell. The Hollywood Reporter reported last May that Boone, who played Mitchell’s character’s girlfriend, Jerrika, and Season 2 showrunner Ayanna Floyd Davis, filed a complaint against Mitchell, details of which haven't been revealed. "Despite HR training, these sources say, the alleged conduct persisted and Boone asked to be released from the series" after Season 2, says The Hollywood Reporter's article. Boone opted to break her silence today in a lengthy statement posted to Instagram, explaining: “You don’t carelessly leave a ‘hit show’ that is praised by your community. I deeply love Chicago and the people of that city who have embraced me. I felt honored and privileged to be part of telling their story. The weight of what I was leaving behind felt like a ton, but the weight of my responsibility to speak up was even heavier. There were people who questioned my decision. How could I be sure I would work again, especially on a project of that magnitude? I wasn’t sure, but I had faith that once I took that leap I could be guided wherever I was supposed to go.” Boone added that she isn't "interested in participating in a 'he said, she said' or a 'she said, she said' with other people involved in my experience on The Chi. I do not see how that benefits anyone. Secondly, my decision to make my concerns known to relevant parties on the show was not just for me. My story is intertwined with the experiences of my then co-workers and it is not my place to share their stories. I left the show, hoping changes would be made to create a better workplace for everyone involved. Lastly, I am presently working towards forgiveness not just of others but most importantly, myself. I dishonored myself by staying in a situation that I knew wasn't aligned with who I am or who I want to become. In order to forgive others, I'm trying not to dwell on all the negative things I believe they did. This is what I need to do on my path towards healing. I know not everyone will understand this, but if there's anything I've learned in this process, it's to trust myself and protect my peace."
