Abstract: Fix a variety $ X$ with a transitive (left) action by an algebraic group $ G$. Let $ \mathcal{E}$ and $ \mathcal{F}$ be coherent sheaves on $ X$. We prove that for elements $ g$ in a dense open subset of $ G$, the sheaf $ \mathcal{T}\hspace{-.7ex}\mathit{or}^X_i(\mathcal{E}, g \mathcal{F})$ vanishes for all $ i > 0$. When $ \mathcal{E}$ and $ \mathcal{F}$ are structure sheaves of smooth subschemes of $ X$ in characteristic zero, this follows from the Kleiman-Bertini theorem; our result has no smoothness hypotheses on the supports of $ \mathcal{E}$ or  $ \mathcal{F}$, or hypotheses on the characteristic of the ground field.
