Jeffrey Tambor Responds to Harassment Allegations, Adamantly Denies Everything

Jeffrey Tambor is firing back at his former assistant Van Barnes, who apparently posted on Facebook saying he acted inappropriately around her.

Deadline has confirmed that Amazon is now looking into the claims concerning the star of their hit show Transparent.

“I am aware that a former disgruntled assistant of mine has made a private post implying that I had acted in an improper manner toward her,” Jeffrey said in a statement. “I adamantly and vehemently reject and deny any and all implication and allegation that I have ever engaged in any improper behavior toward this person or any other person I have ever worked with. I am appalled and distressed by this baseless allegation.”

Van‘s Facebook post is private, and reportedly does not go into detail about what happened between them.

    I believe hm 100%. And it was only a matter of time before some women started making up lies.

    That’s my concern too. People who make up allegations just make it more difficult for actual victims to be believed.

    The good news is that the women up until this one have been believable for a number of reasons – - and some of them frankly have no reason to lie (an actress who has been A-list for 20 years has no reason to make up a story of a random harassment or assault that happened when she was a young, powerless actress). Another thing is that ALL the accused men so far already had rumors swirling about them for years and years, so the accusations coming out are totally believable. This woman accusing Tambor — it could be true, of course, but it doesn’t ring true at all. There’s never been a rumor about this man, not ever. Also his statement of denial sounds truly stunned and appalled. I feel bad for him.

    I have a friend who is a personal assistant to business people, not celebrities. Her bosses (both male and female) over the years have done things that she could have considered inappropriate if she wanted to, but she realized that it’s more because they don’t think of her as a separate person, not because they are trying to harass her or because they have any ill intent. She’s just there to make their lives easier. That’s why she keeps getting hired — because she assists them and doesn’t get all SJW about it.
