I think about the first time I met David Cross ten years ago & he made fun of my pants (that were tattered because I was poor). Dumbfounded I stared at him speechless and he said to me "what's a matter? You don't speak English?? Ching-chong-ching-chong".— Charlyne Yi (@charlyne_yi) October 16, 2017
Yi is an actress/comedian/director. David Cross is a comedian best known for Arrested Development.
Then after he saw I was offended he asked me if I was going to fight with him karate in a southern accent. Then a few years later he was re-introduced to me after my comedy show with his girlfriend at the time & he said "Hi nice to meet you".— Charlyne Yi (@charlyne_yi) October 16, 2017
I will say this:— Charlyne Yi (@charlyne_yi) October 16, 2017
-I can tell the difference between this man making a joke vs condescending me.
-This happened 10 years ago and I sure as hell hope he's changed (or at the very least, he's scared enough to not be his racist self).
HOWEVER it is very uncool that a 40+ man was being racist towards me, being a young 20 year old woman who was clearly on the verge of tears from his first racist comment.— Charlyne Yi (@charlyne_yi) October 16, 2017
Very much. I have reached out to her to clear this up. I've reached out to others who were there when we met as well to get verification. https://t.co/yDuSkgngNO— )))David Cross((( (@davidcrosss) October 17, 2017
