Hollywood actor Jeffrey Tambor said Sunday he’s leaving the hit Amazon series “Transparent,” in which he stars as a trans woman, after two transgender women accused him of unwanted sexual contact. In one allegation, Tambor’s former assistant, trans actress Van Barnes, says Tambor sexually harassed and groped her; in another, Tambor’s co-star Trace Lysette says he pushed his body against her between takes on the set of “Transparent.” Tambor has denied the allegations.
