Jeffrey Tambor recently announced that he will no longer return to more episodes of “Transparent.”

While speaking with Deadline, Tambor said that the atmosphere on the set of the hit Amazon original series has become “politicized” ever since he was accused of sexual misconduct.

“Playing Maura Pfefferman on ‘Transparent’ has been one of the greatest privileges and creative experiences of my life. What has become clear over the past weeks, however, is that this is no longer the job I signed up for four years ago,” he said.

Tambor also vehemently denied the accusations that he sexually assaulted a former employee. A spokesperson for Amazon confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the actor was under investigation. A statement by the spokesperson to Deadline confirmed that the “disgruntled” former assistant exposed Tambor’s alleged misconduct via a post on Facebook.

Following the shocking statements, Tambor said that he was told that an employee claimed he acted inappropriately towards 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,” he said.

On Sunday, told the same publication that he regrets any offensive deed he has ever done to the employee or to anyone. But the actress still stood by the fact that he did not sexually assaulted anyone. “But the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue,” he said.

Meanwhile, Tambor’s “Transparent” co-star, Trace Lysette, told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that she was also sexually assaulted by the actor. After Tambor allegedly “rubbed up against her and began thrusting back and forth,” Lysette just laughed the incident off and rolled her eyes.

After Lysette’s surprising revelations, Tambor released a statement to Entertainment Weekly denying his co-stars accusations. “I have never been a predator – ever. I am deeply sorry if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being sexually aggressive or if I ever offended or hurt anyone,” he said.
