According to the US magazine The Hollywood Reporter, the separation should have been amicable. However, none of those involved wanted to comment on it.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, however, Garlin spoke of the allegations: “For the past three years, there has been an HR investigation into me. HR has come to me for three years in a row about my behavior on the set.”
Employees of the series are said to have felt humiliated and disrespected by his statements and behavior. How things will go on for Garlin’s character Murray is not yet known.
