"It is very uncool that a 40+ man was being racist towards me," writes the actress.

"Arrested Development" star David Cross shot down accusations he's a racist after actress/comedian Charlyne Yi called him out on Twitter for something that allegedly happened 10 years ago.

The actress, who starred on "House" and in "Knocked Up," accused Cross of being incredibly offensive toward her when they met for the first time a decade ago. In a series of tweets on Sunday, she said he made insensitive and "condescending" remarks that left her "speechless" and "on the verge of tears."

Cross became aware of her tweets on Tuesday, first tweeting directly to Yi that he had no recollection of what she says happened actually occurring.

He later tweeted that he was reaching out to her and others who were there at the time to "get verification" about what really went down. Cross followed that message up with a note apologizing to Yi while also reiterating he didn't remember saying what she accused him of.

"A note to any and all. This accusation from Charlyne took me by surprised and was deeply upsetting. I would never intentionally hurt someone like that. I do not remember doing this when I met her," he wrote. "I am NOT accusing Charlene of lying and I'm truly sorry if I hurt her, it was never my intention to do that. I do not remember it like she remembers it … but I reached out to her privately and expressed that and more, including the possibility that perhaps we are both misremembering exactly what happened that night. Anyway, I can’t believe I have to write this but I am not a racist nor a bully and loathe them in real life."

Yi has yet to respond to his latest update.
