Fresh Off the Boat Has Been Renewed For Another Season, and Constance Wu Isn't Happy
Fresh Off the Boat fans are worried after Constance Wu posted a string of angry tweets following the sitcom's season six renewal on Friday. When a fan on Twitter reached out to the show's star to congratulate Wu on the "great news," the actress replied, "No, it's not." Wu then tweeted, "F*cking hell," and "So upset right now that I'm literally crying. Ugh. F*ck."
The show — which first premiered in 2015 and is based on the life of chef Eddie Huang — follows the day-to-day life of a hip-hop loving teenager and his Taiwanese family who owns a cowboy-themed steak restaurant in Orlando, Florida. Wu is known for her role as the pragmatic, no-nonsense, and highly competitive family matriarch, Jessica Huang. Jessica is arguably one of the most beloved characters of the show, so Wu's comments are certainly confusing to say the least.
"That was not a rampage, it was just how I normally talk," Wu later posted. "I say f*ck a lot. I love the word. 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." ABC has yet to comment on the situation. See Wu's posts ahead.
