Amber Tamblyn Would Like You To Leave Her Out Of Her Husband’s Messiness

October 20, 2017 / Posted by:

Amber Tamblyn would please like you to stop @ing her with your criticism about her husband, David Cross. Amber has been on a feminist warpath lately. However, Amber’s “Raise Every Voice” anthem got real quiet when David was accused of saying some really dumb racist shit to fellow comedian Charlyne Yi. Amber was called out on that, and she tweeted that she would very much like to be excluded from this narrative.

Amber posted this to twitter yesterday.

Many have criticized that “apology” as being disingenuous. David claimed that he didn’t remember the incident and suggested that Charlyne may have “misremembered” what happened. But then later he said he actually did remember and that he was probably doing a “funny” redneck character. Here’s his amended complaint apology.

Yes, all-caps NEVER followed immediately by “unless…”. #rashomon indeed. I guess Charlyne just wasn’t smart enough to get the joke. And really, who doesn’t love meeting a person for the first time and having them do a racist “character” at your expense? We all do!  And instead of actually apologizing, David took on the role of victim and wished that everybody who called him a racist piece of shit would suffer the same fate and that he hopes “this happens” to them.

And back to Amber, in the span of a single day, she went from tweets like this:

To this:

To be fair, she’s got a point. She doesn’t owe us anything. David’s behavior is his own cross to bear (bad, bad accidental pun but it stays). But Amber’s very vocal, very public excoriation of men behaving badly does not make for a good look when the man you presumably have the closest relationship with behaves badly and you don’t also publicly excoriate him. I’ll let Amber have the penultimate word.

I and will take the last: Twitter, it’s a hell of a drug.
