Constance Wu Clarifies Comments About Fresh Off the Boat Renewal Amid Backlash

Constance Wu

Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu has explained her negative reaction after her popular series Fresh Off The Boat was renewed for a sixth season.

ABC's adorable Fresh Off the Boat was renewed for a sixth season (it was on the bubble of being canceled) and that is normally fantastic news for the cast and crew of the show. She even responded to a supporting fan congratulating her on the "good news" by writing, "No, it's not". Plz know, Im so grateful for FOTB [Fresh Off the Boat] renewal. And they were correct.

Less than an hour after her original tweets, Wu clarified on Twitter, denying that her strong emotions were caused by the renewal. "I did not say it was over a tv show", tweeted Wu. "So my dismayed social media replies were more about that other project and not about FOTB".

Later, when another Twitter user pointed out that Wu "literally said you were upset and crying over the renewal of a tv show you're in", she attempted to set the record straight. "I was disappointed in not being able to do that other project - because that other project would have challenged me as an artist - that other project would have been really hard and not easy or pleasant at all", she explained.

Her tweet has since been deleted, People reported. Variety has also reached out to Wu's reps.

"I said I was upset and crying. F--." She followed it up with, "F--ing hell".

As Wu received a mix of both shocked and supportive responses, including some speculating that the renewal may impede her blossoming film career, she tweeted that she wasn't on "a rampage", just that she frequently uses that expletive.

"But my words and ill-timing were insensitive to those who are struggling, especially insensitive considering the fact that I used to be in that struggle too", she wrote in her latest post.

She continued: "Y'all are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying".

"Saying "dislike" to this news is a slap in the face to everyone who works behind the scenes to make your show as powerful and groundbreaking as it truly is. Cultural differences still present everyday challenges, but close friends, neighbors and business partners are there to help them navigate the complexities of raising a family of future Millennials", states the description on the show's website. Wu wrote that playing her character Jessica Huang was "fun and easy and pleasant".
