Jeffrey Tambor exits Transparent after sexual harassment allegations surface
Jeffrey Tambor, who played Maura Pfefferman on the Amazon series Transparent has exited the series soon after sexual harassment allegations against the actor surfaced. In a statement released to Variety, the actor said that while he feels privileged to have acted in the series, it no longer views to be the work he had signed up for four years ago.
“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 politicised atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to Transparent,” he said.
The actor has been accused of sexually harassing his assistant, a trans woman named Van Barnes. Furthermore, Trace Lysette, who joined the show as a guest star, opened up about the actor behaving inappropriately with her.
The series’ team has reportedly begun on working how the show run after Tambor’s exit.

Actress Lena Dunham, who had initially defended one of the writers from the show Girls who is accused of sexual assault, has come out with a statement apologising for doing so.

In her statement, she further added how every person should be heard equally.
