"Again, not to belittle it or excuse it or anything, but in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, "difficult". Tony Hale, who plays Walter's son Buster on Arrested Development, chimed in at one point saying, "I will say, to Jason's point, we can be honest about the fact that, and not to build a thing, we've all had moments".
"I've never had anybody yell at me like that on a set", Walter said in the interview.
On Thursday, New York news site Gothamist asked Cross about the criticism, and the 54-year-old said he understood why people were uncomfortable with his remarks and promised to "unequivocally apologize to Jessica". "I think what Jeffrey did was egregious and there was a little bit of cruelty to it, which I have a real issue with".
She explained he had verbally abused her, adding, "In... nearly 60 years of working, I've never had anybody yell at me like that on a set". "And it's hard to deal with, but I'm over it now". How you could make a member of your "family" cry and then proceed to speak over them is beyond me.
Later he posted on Twitter: 'I have reached out to Jessica personally to apologize. That's important to remember'. I'm sorry that we behaved the way we behaved.
Netflix has cancelled a United Kingdom press tour to promote season five of Arrested Development following controversy surrounding actor Jeffrey Tambor.
In a statement released Thursday, Netflix announced, "At this time we have decided not to move ahead with promotional activity in the United Kingdom but hope to bring the cast back at anothertime". There's never an excuse ever for yelling at somebody and humiliating them in front of other people'.
Among planned appearances were a slot on the BBC's One Show tonight, with Hale and Shawkat due on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch over the weekend. Cross also publicly apologized to Walter for defending Tambor's behavior.
Season 5 of the cult series is set to arrive in Netflix on May 29.
