Amidst the breakdown of the actress, Bateman kept on backing Tambor up. According to him, the verbal abuse was simply the process of becoming an actor. He showed his support to Tambor stating that it was just atypical behavior and everybody had certain processes to go through.
Following the statement, the internet blasted their voices against Jason stating that he's a complete 'as***le' and other similar things like that.
This incident is Tambor's second time as he was fired from the Amazon's show Transparent in the second month of this year. The reason for his dismissal was because of the sexual harassment case that he was accused of during November 2017.
Even though he has verbally accused Walter, he will still appear on the season 5 of the comedy series, Arrested Development.
