Jeffrey Tambor Under Investigation for Sexual Harassment at Amazon
Veteran actor Jeffrey Tambor has received plenty of accolades for his depiction of a transgender woman on Amazon's Transparent, but he's now being investigated for alleged sexual harassment behind the scenes.

Van Barnes is a transgender woman who served as Tambor's assistant on the show and has also appeared in reality shows like Caitlin Jenner's I Am Cait and Amazon's This Is Me. According to Deadline, she alleged inappropriate behaviour from Tambor in a Facebook post.

Though the post was kept private, Amazon has now launched a probe into the accusations. Responding to the story, Tambor offered the following statement:

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.

The Jeffrey Tambor investigation comes three weeks after Amazon Studios boss Roy Price resigned following a series of sexual harassment claims against him.
