Bros before Dylan Farrow.

'He Has Done This To Himself': Jeffrey Tambor Accuser Comes Forward With New Statement Defending Amazon's Investigation

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsTransgender

After accusations of sexual harassment by his assistant and a guest star, Jeffrey Tambor was the subject of an internal investigation by Amazon — and eventually fired from Transparent.

The Emmy-winning actor did not react well to the news, calling the investigation "deeply flawed and biased toward the toxic politicized atmosphere that afflicted our set."

He has even found some backup in colleagues like Arrested Development costar David Cross, who said he finds Amazon's investigatory methods "curious" and less than, well, transparent.

Now one of the women accusing Tambor is calling B.S. on his response.

Van Barnes, whom reality TV fans might recognize from her appearances on I Am Cait, released a lengthy statement to The Hollywood Reporter, calling her former boss's claims he knew nothing about this "completely ludicrous."

Keep Meryl Streep's name out of your mouth, Harvey Weinstein!

The celebrated actress fired back at the disgraced producer after his lawyers used her name and positive experience with him in an attempt to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed against him in December.

Weinstein's lawyers filed the motion on Tuesday, arguing the class action status of the allegations was invalid because the claims would apply to "all women who ever met with Weinstein, regardless of whether they claimed to have suffered any identifiable harm," including the 21-time Oscar nominee.

Along with mentioning Streep by name, the motion used a recent statement, in which the actress said Weinstein "had always been respectful to her in their working relationship," to defend the accused rapist.

Naturally, the 68-year-old was outraged to discover her good name was being used in attempt to negate the experiences of over 80 women, and made it clear she finds the tactic "pathetic and exploitative."

She said in a statement on Wednesday:
