News: Transparent Star Jeffrey Tambor Investigated Over Sexual Harassment Claim

Amazon Studios is conducting an investigation into an allegation against Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor.

This stems from a private Facebook post in which his former assistant Van Barnes alleges there was "implied inappropriate behaviour," according to a Deadline report

Tambor told Deadline: "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. 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.”

Jill Soloway, who created the series, has issued a statement: "Anything that would diminish the level of respect, safety and inclusion so fundamental to our workplace is completely antithetical to our principles. We are cooperating with the investigation into this matter.”

Tambor (pictured in Transparent) has recently appeared in The Death of Stalin and famously played Hank Kingsley in The Larry Sanders Show.
