Wel, that's that.

The creator of "The Chi", Lena Waithe, said she didn't hear about Jason's alleged behavior until the end of season 1.  She said in an interview with The Breakfast Club that she believed that her showrunner and HR was handling it, but soon realized the situation had gotten worse, causing Tiffany to only agree to be on set with Jason if her real life boyfriend was also there.  Eventually, she appeared far less in the show.

It was also noted by two female co-workers on another show Jason was working on at Netflix, Desperados, and he has also been fired from there.  his agents and management have all also dropped him as a client.
