Jeffrey Tambor Fired From Transparent Amidst Harassment Allegations
Jeffrey Tambor, best known for his roles in “Arrested Development” and “Transparent,” has officially been fired from Amazon’s original series after an investigation into his alleged sexual harassment concluded this week.
The allegations were brought against Tambor in November 2017 by two transgender actresses he worked with on the show. Van Barnes and Trace Lysette accused Tambor of making unwanted physical advances on them and offering to trade sexual favors for pay raises.
Tambor issued an apology after the accusations were made public. “I know I haven’t always been the easiest person to work with,” he said. “I can be volatile and ill-tempered, and too often I express my opinions harshly and without tact. But I have never been a predator – ever.”
But Thursday, Amazon confirmed to Deadline what many had suspected. The company announced it had finished its investigation into Tambor and decided to terminate the actor from the upcoming season. – READ MORE
