Jeff Garlin Exits 'The Goldbergs' Immediately Following HR Investigation Over Unprofessional Behavior

The news comes just a few weeks after he was accused of unprofessional behavior on the set of the comedy show.

It was alleged that Jeff contributed to a demeaning work culture and “engaged in a pattern of verbal and physical conduct on set that made people uncomfortable.”

One source told Vanity Fair in an op-ed that Jeff had gotten “away with it because he would call himself out for it—saying he was a big teddy bear, saying things like, ‘Oh you know me, just a big bowl of mush, I’m a hugger. I just love you.’”

Jeff also responded to an allegation of a incident between him and a stand-in “that was both physical and verbal.” He denies that anything physical occurred and says he’s known both the stand-in and his wife for years.

Deadline is reporting that a mutual agreement was reached today (December 15) with Jeff not returning to the show, and his exit is effective immediately.

Reps for Sony Pictures Television, which produces the comedy, had no comment.

The Goldbergs lost another one of its’ cast members earlier this year, as George Segal, who played Pops, unexpectedly passed away.
