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.

A NYPD detective who allegedly leaked actor Cuba Gooding, Jr.'s mugshot to an entertainment website has reportedly been stripped of his gun and badge.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, NYPD detective Josh Ulan was stripped of his gun and badge and placed on administrative duty on Tuesday.

The decorated sex crimes detective is accused of providing Gooding's mugshot to Atlanta-based website Rolling Out following Gooding's arrest on groping allegations in June.

Gooding, 51, was arrested on June 13 on charges of misdemeanor forcible touching and sexual abuse stemming from an allegation by a woman who claims he groped her while she served drinks at a bar in Times Square.

A new video published by TMZ shows the alleged groping incident at TAO nightclub in Times Square.

The "Jerry Maguire" star has since been indicted on a number of criminal charges in connection with three women accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Ulan, 49, joined the NYPD in 1992. He is noted for his involvement in the arrest of Peter Braunstein, who posed as a firefighter on Halloween 2005 and sexually abused a woman for 13 hours.

"The NYPD's Special Victims Division is committed to doing everything possible to ensure survivors of sexual assault feel the safety and support needed to come forward, bravely share their experiences, and help the NYPD bring to justice those who have committed these horrific crimes," Devora Kaye, the department’s acting deputy commissioner of public information, told the publication in the statement.

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?

Antonio Brown has been let go from his third NFL team this year. The New England Patriots cut their troubled wide receiver loose on Friday after he sent group text messages to his latest accuser.

The Patriots had had enough, according to NFL.com.

"The New England Patriots are releasing Antonio Brown. We appreciate the hard work of many people over the past 11 days, but we feel that it is best to move in a different direction at this time," the Patriots said in a statement, according to NFL.com.

Brown, 31, was accused of causing a commotion on his last NFL team - the Oakland Raiders - because he wanted to sign with the Patriots.

Brown played one game in a Patriots uniform, despite allegations of sexual misconduct made by his former personal trainer.

Brown's second accuser, who is unnamed, complained that he sent her harassing text messages after she went public with her story.

Brown hired the woman to paint his portrait for a mural at his home in 2017 after meeting her at a charity softball game in Pittsburgh.

While she worked on the painting in his home, Brown allegedly emerged from the bathroom holding a cloth over his genitals.

The woman's story was published by the Sporting News.

The woman provided the text messages to Sports Illustrated that show texts sent from a phone number once used by Brown. He included her, his attorney and others on a group chat, calling her a "broke girl" and urging his associates to investigate her.

"Really sad you would make up bull s—t story to the world thought u had more integrity n respect for yourself must be really hard times for to make up some stuff for money super sad,” reads one of the texts reads, according to Sports Illustrated.

The texter included photos of the artist's kids. The message urged "ig Eric" on the group chat to "look up her background."

Brown was let go after the accuser's lawyer, Lisa Banks, sent a letter to the NFL, complaining about the text messages. Banks called the texts "intimidating and threatening to our client, in violation of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy."

After he was released by the Patriots on Friday, Brown took to Twitter.com and Instagram.com to post an image featuring a Nipsey Hussle quote:

"Sometimes people try to destroy you precisely because they recognize your power; Not because they don't see it, but because they see it and they don't want it to exist."

He caught a TD pass and 4 passes for 56 yards in his only NFL game this year.

Aziz Ansari

Aziz Ansari is grateful for all the support he's gotten from friends and family after he was accused of sexually harassing a woman he invited over for a one-night stand last year.

Aziz and the woman met at an Emmy Awards party in 2017. The 34-year-old actor is defending himself after the woman shared her side of the story in a lengthy post on Babe.net, titled "I went on a date with Aziz Ansari. It turned into the worst night of my life".

The then 22-year-old Brooklyn photographer, who has chosen to remain anonymous, alleged she went on a date with Ansari, who proceeded to rush her through dinner and up to his apartment.

She recalls there was still wine in her glass and more left in the bottle he ordered. The abruptness surprised her. “Like, he got the check and then it was bada-boom, bada-bing, we’re out of there.”
