Constance Wu Tweets Profane Disappointment On ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ Renewal

This afternoon, ABC has officially renewed "The Rookie", "American Housewife", "Bless This Mess", "Single Parents", and "Fresh Off the Boat" for the 2019-20 season.

"For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word f- thank u too", she added, referencing her use of the swear word in her previous tweets.

"So upset right now that I'm literally crying. Ugh".

Wu backtracked with another series of tweets, saying her earlier comments were on the heels of a rough day and "ill timed". She also said that, despite the way it appeared, the comments were not about Fresh Off the Boat's renewal.

When ABC announced the renewal Friday, Wu said in a series of tweets that it was not welcome news. Wu wrote that playing her character Jessica Huang was "fun and easy and pleasant". I did not say it was over a tv show.

Wu also told her fans to stop assuming that they knew what her comments were alluding to.

In Saturday's follow-up, Wu wrote that people "assumed" her original remarks "meant I don't love and enjoy fresh off the boat but I do love and enjoy it". On Saturday, Wu released a lengthy statement on Twitter. Plz know, Im so grateful for FOTB [Fresh Off the Boat] renewal. "So I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same time be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job", she writes. "I'm proud to be a part of it". "Thank you. It's meaningful when you make the choice to believe women".

Today she put out a statement clarifying that she loves Fresh Off the Boat and was just frustrated that she "had to give up another project that I was really passionate about".

The star of ABC's Fresh Off the Boat issued two unhappy tweets, each underlined with an expletive, starting less than an hour after the comedy was renewed for a sixth season by ABC Friday. The series follows the Huang family - Mom, Dad, three young brothers and their Mandarin-speaking grandma - who move from Washington, D.C.'s Chinatown to Orlando in the mid-1990s. But she said that she would prefer to pursue more challenging roles.

"But if one does have privilege, they ought to use that privilege as best they can", she adds.
