Amber Tamblyn Says She Believes Woman Who Accused Husband David Cross Of Racist Remarks

ActressAmber Tamblynreached out to the comedian who accused Tamblyn’s husbandDavid Crossof racist behavior ― and said she believes her.

Tweeting late Thursday that she spoke toCharlyne Yi, who claimed thatCross insulted her Asian heritage at a meeting 10 years ago, Tamblyn wrote that Yi’s “feelings/safety are all that matter to me.”

“I’ll say it again,” Tamblyn wrote, seemingly in response to a Twitter user who accused her of beingable to believe claims of sexual harassment but not accusations of racism. “I spoke to Charlyne.I believe her. I’m about HER feelings/emotional health right now.”

Tamblyn previously appeared to defend Cross, noting that he had apologized several times. But in her cluster of tweets on Thursday, Tamblyn beseeched readers to “not hold women accountablefor the actions, decisions or word of their partners.”

Thecontroversy beganwhen Yi tweeted Monday about a meeting she had with Cross when she was starting her show business career. She said he insulted her tattered pants, then teased her that perhaps she didn’t understand English, uttering “ching-chong, ching-chong.” Yi, once a regular on themedical drama “House,”added that he then asked her in a Southern accent if she was going to fight him with karate.

Cross, left, said at one point that Yi, right, had "misremembered" what happened, but his wife, Amber Tamblyn, said she believed Yi.

Cross, a comedian known in part for TV’s “Arrested Development” and the “Alvin and the Chipmunks” movies, issued a series of tweets on the matter. He said that he didn’t recall the exchange and that perhaps both he and Yi were “misremembering” what happened. He also apologized for any offense. Later, he surmised that he would have beenin character as a racist redneckif he evermade commentslike that.

Here are Tamblyn’s tweets from late Thursday:
