Jeffrey Tambor quits ‘Transparent’ after sex harassment allegations

Published

on

Actor Jeffrey Tambor has quit the Amazon Studios series “Transparent” after accusations that he sexually harassed two women on the show’s production team.

Tambor revealed to “Deadline Hollywood” on Sunday night that he is stepping down from the show although he denies the allegations against him.

Tambor — who won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of a trans woman who begins her transition in middle age — released a statement to “Deadline Hollywood” that said, in part, “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 continued, “I’ve already made clear my deep regret if any action of mine was ever misinterpreted by anyone as being aggressive, but the idea that I would deliberately harass anyone is simply and utterly untrue. Given the politicized atmosphere that seems to have afflicted our set, I don’t see how I can return to ‘Transparent.’”

The show is scheduled to begin filming its fifth season and is expected to write around the absence of Tambor’s character.

Yingst went on to say that Trump's deal with the Turkish government would essentially force the Kurds to give up territory that has for years been their home.

Not surprising that the SDF is rejecting the ceasefire.

According to Vice President Mike Pence, the ceasefire will take place for just five days. It's unclear what will happen after those five days are up.

CNN's Matt Hoye noted the Turkish foreign minister's comments came around the same time that Trump was praising the deal.

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it

Published

on

"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Here's what's in the accord -- and what each side gave up to get there.

- Northern Ireland -

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.

The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.
