Add MTV to the list of outlets severing ties with actor Jason Mitchell. “The Chi” star will no longer be among the nominees for “Best Performance in a Show” at this year’s MTV Movie & TV Awards.

                        “In light of recent developments, we have removed Jason Mitchell as a nominee,” an MTV spokesperson told Variety.

                        Mitchell had been set to face off in the category with Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) and Kiernan Shipka (“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”). Notably, he was the only male in the category, as MTV dropped gender-specific categories a few years ago.

                        The awards show, which will air on June 17, will continue the category with just four nominees now that Mitchell has been removed. MTV first announced this year’s Movie & TV Awards nominees on May 14. But less than a week later, it was revealed that the actor had been dropped from Season 3 of “The Chi,” as well as the Netflix film “Desperados,” over allegations of misconduct.

                        Mitchell is currently seen as Brandon on Season 2 of “The Chi,” for which he landed the MTV Movie & TV Awards nomination, but Showtime and producer Fox 21 confirmed he wouldn’t be back. In “Desperados,” starring Anna Camp and Nasim Pedrad, the movie — currently filming in Mexico — quickly replaced Mitchell with Lamorne Morris after issues of misconduct arose on set.

                        Mitchell was also dropped by his reps, UTA and Authentic Talent & Literary Management, following the revelations.
