Jeffrey Tambor Speaks Out After Being Dropped from 'Transparent'

Jeffrey Tambor is speaking out after he was officially let go from the Amazon series Transparent following accusations of sexual harassment made against him.

It was initially reported that Tambor would not appear in the fifth season of the show, but then he said he had no intention of leaving.

Tambor was accused of sexual harassment by his former assistant Van Barnes and Transparent guest star Trace Lysette, who are both trans women.

“I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon’s handling of these false accusations against me,” he said in a statement (via Variety). “I am even more disappointed in Jill Soloway’s unfair characterization of me as someone who would ever cause harm to any of my fellow cast mates. In our four-year history of working together on this incredible show, these accusations have NEVER been revealed or discussed directly with me or anyone at Amazon. Therefore, I can only surmise that the investigation against me was deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set. As I have consistently stated, I deeply regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone and I will continue to vehemently defend myself. I also deeply regret that this ground-breaking show, which changed so many lives, is now in jeopardy. That, to me, is the biggest heartbreak.”

Tambor has won two Emmys for his work as trans woman Maura Pfefferman on Transparent.
