Jeffrey Tambor accused of sexual harrassment again

Jeffrey Tambor once again facing allegations of sexual harassment and once again by a person who happens to be transgender.

Fellow “Transparent” actor Trace Lysette  who plays Shea on the Amazon TV series — claims Tambor made lewd, sexually suggestive and unwelcome remarks to her several times, and once pressed up against her during a break in filming in a “sexually aggressive manner” … according to Deadline.

Tambor  who’s already being investigated  by Amazon for harassment claims made by his ex-assistant — admits he can be “ill-tempered” and a difficult person to work with, but denies any predatory behavior.

According to TMZ, Tambor also apologized, saying … “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. But the fact is, for all my flaws, I am not a predator and the idea that someone might see me in that way is more distressing than I can express.”

Lysette has reportedly not filed an official complaint with Amazon, but the company plans to add the new allegations to its current investigation.

It’s interesting timing — reports Thursday suggested “Transparent” writers were prepping for next season to be without Tambor, even before claims made by Lysette.
