Writer and actress Lena Waithe is done working with former The Chi star Jason Mitchell. The 32-year-old actor was fired from the show amid sexual misconduct allegations.

Mitchell was cut from Waithe's TV drama and from the cast of Netflix movie Desperados amid claims of inappropriate behavior, which led to him being dropped by his talent agents and managers.

At first Waithe defended her friend, who proclaimed his innocence, insisting he did nothing wrong.

The Straight Outta Compton star issued a public apology and promised to undergo therapy and counseling.

While Waithe acknowledges Mitchell's efforts to improve his inappropriate behavior, she now insists her priority has to be ensuring the safety and well-being of her female cast and crew on set.

The male-identified lesbian says she can't see herself collaborating with Mitchell on any future projects.

"I'm for the people - I'm for black women. I'm a person who is all about supporting us and making sure we're good and we feel safe," she shared on New York radio show The Breakfast Club, according to WENN.com.

"I couldn't then have a whole conversation with you and then still be like, 'Oh yeah, if he (Mitchell) ever wanted some (work), it's all good.' To me, it's also about changing your behavior... I can't align myself with someone who's (faced misconduct allegations)."

Waithe, who tied the knot with her longtime girlfriend earlier this year, has since hired "intimacy coordinators" to mentally prepare actors for intimate sex scenes on every project she's involved in.

"For me, I feel like I've grown so much from it and I've evolved so much because of it," she explained.

Jason Mitchell has successfully completed a mental health counseling course after he was fired from The Chi amid allegations of inappropriate behavior with several female co-stars, including his onscreen girlfriend, Tiffany Boone.

Mitchell was fired after Boone complained to Human Resources about his inappropriate behavior that made her feel unsafe on the set. The actor was also dropped by his agents.

'The Chi' writer Lena Waithe, 35, (pictured above with Mitchell) caught flack for turning a deaf ear to all the complaints.

In a public statement last year, Waithe, who is a male-identified lesbian, said she was taking steps to handle the complaints against Mitchell, who she treated like one of her boys.

Since being terminated Mitchell has been unable to find work in the acting field, as news travels quickly and Hollywood is quick to blacklist undesirables.

Now Instagram blog TheShadeRoom reports a source saying that Mitchell has worked on his anger management issues, self-awareness, acceptance of responsibility, and purpose (whatever that means).

The source also confirmed Mitchell is a changed man at age 32, and he won't molest any more women if Hollywood gives him a second chance.

History tells us that lecherous men don't change their stripes at age 32. Once a dog, always a dog.

Question: Would you trust him around you or your adult daughter? Do you believe he's a changed man? Would you support him if he returned to The Chi?
