Jeffrey Tambor Gives First Full Interview Since Sexual Misconduct Accusations Surfaced On Transparent — And It's Already Receiving Criticism

no title

There's a LOT to digest in THR's profile of Jeffrey Tambor — his first full interview granted since he was let go from Transparent after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.

Above all, though, we can certainly say Tambor is still fighting the characterizations that what he did was sexual misconduct; to read the long, full piece itself would have you realizing Tambor far more wants to be seen as an actor difficult to work with than an alleged sexual predator.

So to that end, some highlights.

First, Tambor very much disputes the characterization from Van Barnes that he watched her sleeping naked — an accusation Van again publicly levied during Megyn Kelly's daytime talk show recently.

From the THR profile, Tambor responded to the allegation (below):

After hearing Van Barnes' side of things, Jeffrey Tambor sounds like the boss from hell.

On Wednesday, one of the disgraced Transparent star's accusers stopped by Megyn Kelly's hour of Today to talk about her unpleasant experiences with the Emmy winner. As we previously reported, Tambor was fired from the Amazon hit after his former assistant Barnes and costar Trace Lysette hit him with allegations of sexual misconduct.

'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."

See the entire statement to get her side of the investigation (below):

Someone's bitter.

As you surely saw, Jeffrey Tambor was given his official pink slip from Amazon's Transparent after the studio conducted an internal investigation into claims of sexual misconduct. Well, clearly, the Arrested Development actor does NOT agree with the ruling as he's since put the show's creator, Jill Soloway, and the Jeff Bezos-run company on blast.

Michael Rapaport Passionately Defends Jeffrey Tambor Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal: 'I Don’t Support Unproven Claims Of Harassment'

michael rapaport defends jeffrey tambor

Jeffrey Tambor has, at least, one ally left in Hollywood.

On Sunday, Michael Rapaport took to Twitter to vocalize his support for the disgraced Emmy winner amid the later's sexual harassment scandal. As we previously reported, Tambor announced he'd be leaving Transparent after both his former assistant, Van Barnes, and his costar, Trace Lysette, hit him with allegations of misconduct.

While Jeffrey has vehemently denied the sexual harassment accusations, he has chosen to walk away from the Amazon hit. This decision came after gossip suggested that those in charge of Transparent were ready to write a season five sans Tambor.

In response to this drama, the Prison Break star passionately defended the Arrested Development alum. Unsurprisingly, Rapaport's defense of Tambor did NOT go over well online. It all started when Michael wrote:
