Los Angeles, May 11 (IANS) Hours after actress Constance Wu publicly shared her disappointment about her show “Fresh Off the Boat” being renewed, she tweeted that her tweets came “on the heels of a rough day”.
Contrary to her earlier sentiments, Wu also said that she was “grateful” for the renewal and “proud” to be a part of the show, reports people.com.
“Today’s tweets were on the heels of rough day and were ill timed w/the news of the show,” she tweeted on Friday.
“Please know, I am so grateful for FOTB renewal. I love the cast and crew. I am proud to be a part of it. For all the fans support, thank you and for all who support my casual use of the word f- thank you too,” she added, making reference to her explicit use of language in the tweets.
On Friday, ABC announced that the comedy series had been renewed for a sixth season. Although Wu has starred on the show since 2015, when it made its debut, she was far from pleased about the show’s return.
In a series of tweets following the renewal news, Wu made it clear that she wasn’t celebrating. “So upset right now that I’m literally crying,” wrote Wu. “Ugh. F-.”
Within the hour, she posted a second tweet: “F-ing hell.”
When a Twitter user congratulated Wu, writing, “Congrats on your renewal! Great news :),” the “Crazy Rich Asians” actress responded: “No it’s not.” (Her reply has since been deleted.)
Despite her response, in a follow-up tweet, Wu told her fans to “stop assuming” that they knew what her comments were in reference to.
“That was not a rampage, it was just how I normally talk. I say f- a lot. I love the word,” she wrote.
“Y’all are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying. And no, it’s not what it’s about. No it’s not… what this is all about. Stop assuming.”
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 said I was upset and crying. I did not say it was over a tv show,” tweeted Wu. “You’re making an assumption.”
