Jeffrey Tambor Exits 'Transparent' Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations (Statement)

Jeffrey Tambor is officially leaving Amazon’s Transparent after sexual harassment allegations have surfaced.

“Playing Maura Pfefferman on Transparent has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago,” the 73-year-old actor said in a statement to Deadline. “I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent.”

Tambor has won two Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a SAG Awards for his work on the show. The show was just renewed for a fifth season over the summer.

    Just because you “feel” harassed or interpret something as harassment or years, months later reimagine them as harassment in the current atmosphere does not make them harassment. We all see life through lenses that only we can see life through and some of them color our experiences different shades than they truly are.

    I always thought he was gentleman I had no idea that that he was freak and a deviant

  • Joy

    I don’t like his comment, because it is petulant and blaming a politicized climate for him leaving. It’s on HIM that he’s leaving.

    Triple agree! Fine line and how I’m to support women when just because a woman screams this-from many years ago or took money to silence doesn’t make it so!

    Wow! Well we don’t know any of that. Best term I️ heard was witch hunt. And once it’s out there then why would he show up?
