Home Television Constance Wu Says “Whoa!” Backtracks on Her F-Word Laden Reaction to Sitcom...

“Fresh off the Boat” actress Constance Wu must have been read the riot act yesterday by ABC and her agents. Wu was so upset that “Boat” was renewed for a sixth season, thus binding her to a sitcom while she is now a movie star (we’ll see), that she fired off Tweets dropping the F bomb twice.

Now, chastened by her employers, Wu has backtracked. First she Tweeted: “Todays tweets were on the heels of rough day&were ill timed w/the news of the show. Plz know, Im so grateful for FOTB renewal. I love the cast&crew. Im proud to be a part of it. For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word fuck-thank u too”

Then she added: “That was not a rampage, it was just how I normally talk. I say fuck 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.”

 But now she’s added a whole statement this morning to dig herself out of this PR mess. I don’t think it will work. Those Tweets are going to follow her to the TCAs and all interviews for the new season.
