Amazon confirmed on Thursday that Jeffrey Tambor will not be returning to Transparent following sexual harassment claims and an internal investigation by the retail and streaming company, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Jeffrey Tambor officially fired from ‘Transparent’ following sexual harassment claims
The fifth season is set for production without him.
The investigation had been launched after two actresses, Trace Lysette and Van Barnes, said Tambor sexually harassed them. Show creator Jill Soloway said she had “great respect and admiration” for the women, who are both transgender, speaking out about their experiences.
“We are grateful to the many trans people who have supported our vision for Transparent since its inception and remain heartbroken about the pain and mistrust their experience has generated in our community,” Soloway said in a statement. “We are taking definitive action to ensure our workplace respects the safety and dignity of every individual, and are taking steps to heal as a family.”
