Jeffrey Tambor Blasts Amazon and Transparent Creator After Being Fired

at . Comments

Jeffrey Tambor may be out of Amazon's Transparent, but he is not going down without a fight. 

The award-winning actor has released a statement in response to his controversial exit from the series, and it seems like he is mad at both Amazon and creator Jill Solloway.

“I am profoundly disappointed in Amazon’s handling of these false accusations against me,” Tambor said.

“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.”

He continued, “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.”

It was confirmed on Thursday the actor would be saying goodbye to his award-winning role on the show as a result of an investigation into allegations of misconduct against the star.

The series' future was thrown into doubt in November when fellow Van Barnes and Trace Lysette stars came forward with claims of on-set harassment.

Makeup artist Tamara Delbridge emerged as the third accuser in late November and said Tambor forcibly kissed her on the set of a movie they were working on in 2001. 

Tambor went on to deny the allegations, and Amazon later stepped in to investigate.
