Jeffrey Tambor under investigation for alleged sexual harassment at Amazon

Amazon bosses have launched an investigation into sexual harassment allegations against actor Jeffrey Tambor.
Less than a month after Amazon Studios boss Roy Price resigned over misconduct claims, the star of the network’s Transparent drama has been singled out for scrutiny following accusations made by his former assistant.
An Amazon spokesperson has confirmed to Deadline that an investigation has been initiated, while Tambor has called the claims “baseless”.
“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,” Tambor told Deadline on Wednesday (08Nov17). “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.”
Investigators will reportedly speak to Tambor’s Transparent co-workers and the actor himself. The series is currently not in production.
The scandal has broken two months to the day after Tambor was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
