Constance Wu says her outburst after her show's renewal was badly timed

Constance Wu appeared to be rather unhappy her sitcom Fresh Off The Boat was renewed for a sixth season. These tweets remain, but a comment made on the Fresh Off the Boat Instagram account's celebratory post and a reply to a fan (see below) have since been deleted.

Wu's first tweet, sent less than an hour after the renewal news broke, said, "So upset right now that I'm literally crying. Ugh. F.".

Later on Friday Wu shifted gears again, explaining the earlier messages came on "the heels of rough day & were ill timed w/the news of the show. I was temporarily upset yesterday not because I hate the show but because it's renewal meant I had to give up another project that I was really passionate about", she wrote.

ABC had no comment when TV Guide reached out about Wu's tweets.

Wu saw her stardom soar in the previous year with her lead role in "Crazy Rich Asians", a major hit that got her a Golden Globe nomination. F***,' she wrote, later tweeting, 'F***ing hell. "I did not say it was over a tv show", she stated.

She continued: "Y'all are making a lot of assumptions about what I was saying". She elaborated by saying that as much as she loved Fresh Off the Boat, it's "fun and easy and pleasant", and she was excited by an opportunity that would have been more of an "artistic challenge".

When a Twitter user congratulated Wu, writing, "Congrats on your renewal!" "Plz (please) know, Im so grateful for FOTB renewal". I love the cast&crew. "I'm proud to be a part of it".

Wu stars in "Fresh off the Boat" playing the mother in a Taiwanese-American family in Florida in the 1990s. I hope you believe me. 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.

"I had to say something because I stood by the pilot", he wrote.

Back in October, in response to a fan who asked why she wasn't getting more film offers, she responded that she has been forced to turn down a number of recent opportunities, because she is filming Fresh Off The Boat for "9 months out of the year".
