Constance Wu explains unhappy response to her sitcom renewal

Constance Wu

Actress Constance Wu appeared to be unhappy her ABC sitcom "Fresh Off The Boat" was renewed Friday for a sixth season. On Saturday, she offered a lengthy explanation for her remarks.

In her statement, Wu said she had been "temporarily upset" because the renewal of the sitcom meant she would not be able to pursue another project which would have been more challenging.

Wu was immediately criticized on social media for her tone-deaf messages.

"But I understand how that could feel interconnected and could get muddled", she continued.

Brazil's president: Rio to host Formula One again in 2020
In 1973, the race was made an official part of the calendar, and Interlagos became one of the real classic Formula 1 venues. Deodoro was used as a venue for some events at the 2016 Olympics, including equestrian, field hockey and modern pentathlon.


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". Sometimes even my closest friends are baffled at how I could value artistic challenge/difficulties over success/happiness. "I've gotten to fully explore my character and I know her like the back of my hand".

"For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word f- thank u too", she added, making reference to her explicit use of language in the earlier tweets. "I hope you hear them", following her freakish reaction to "Fresh off the Boat" being picked up for a sixth season. I love the cast & crew.

These words are my truth.

In a series of tweets, Wu groused that she was "so upset now that I'm literally crying". 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. "F--." She followed it up with, "F--ing hell".

USA senator proposes ban on loot boxes and microtransactions
There are other games that don't have a randomized box with in-game power-ups but still have in-game currency. Researchers interviewed 144 adult gamers and 113 undergraduates about their use of loot boxes .


The 37-year-old actress, who has been on the show since 2015, seemingly shared her disappointment about the ABC comedy being renewed on social media.

An hour or so after her initial tweets, she "clarified" what she has originally tweeted.

On the show's Instagram account, commenters called her out after she apparently posted "Dislike" under a post about the show returning for another season.

"That was not a rampage, it was just how I normally talk", she tweeted. I did not say it was over a tv show. "I love the word", she wrote.

Dozens of migrants drown off Tunisia coast
About 164 people died on the route between Libya and Europe in the first four months of 2019, UNHCR figures show. The survivors were brought to the coast by the Tunisian Navy and are awaiting permission to disembark.


"Y'all are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying", Wu wrote on Twitter. And no, it's not what it's about.
