Constance Wu Explains Her Shocking Posts After Fresh Off The Boat's Renewal

Wu didn't delete her earlier tweets and defended them by saying they were "on the heels of rough day & were ill timed (with) the news of the show". Not long after the renewal was announced, the actress took to Twitter to post how disappointed and mad she was about something.

That's right, it appears Wu - who starred in the summer sleeper Crazy Rich Asians - is upset that the network did not cancel Fresh Off the Boat.

Soon after the announcement that American Housewife is renewed, ABC has announced renewals for sitcoms Fresh off the Boat, Single Parents, and Bless This Mess as well as Nathan Fillion-starring drama The Rookie. I love the word.

Constance Wu is a movie star now after Crazy Rich Asians.

She says in the statement she enjoys the show and the people she works with but that the other project she was looking at "would have challenged me as an artist".

Wu was raised in Richmond and told the New York Times in 2015 that her family wound up there after her dad got a job as a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University teaching biology and genetics. Even if she hates being on the show - and there could be valid reasons for her frustration that we don't know! - it comes across as disrespectful to the entire cast and crew to be so negative about the show continuing. She also said that, despite the way it appeared, the comments were not about Fresh Off the Boat's renewal. "Plz (please) know, Im so grateful for FOTB renewal".

"People "assumed" that that meant I don't love and enjoy FOTB. But in general, I've always sought artistic challenge over comfort and ease", Constance continued.

"I do regret that and it wasn't nice and I am sorry for that", she stated, adding that she knows how privileged she is to have options. "For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word f-- thank u too", she concluded.

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.

Reps for 20th Century Fox, which produces the show and ABC have not yet responded to Wu's Tweet, but fans minds are made up. "You're making an assumption".
