Constance Wu, who seemed rather unenthused at Fresh Off the Boat getting another season, has inspired other celebrities to react in the same way.
Wu came under the spotlight over the weekend after posting tweets and Instagram comments which indicated she was not happy about the renewal of her sitcom, which is now set to enter its sixth season.
So upset right now that I’m literally crying. Ugh. Fuck
— Constance Wu (@ConstanceWu) May 10, 2019
Those words, “fucking hell,” became something of a catch-cry as people announced that their shows were getting a run.
Like Joel Kim Booster, who had Sunnyside picked up by NBC for the 2019-20 season.
Rahul Kohli, who plays Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti in The CW’s iZombie, also repeated those words.
As well as Allison Tolman, who had her series Emergence picked up, plus The Golbergs’ Sam Lerner and The Orville’s Seth MacFarlane.
Wu later apologised for the comments in a statement, explaining that she was upset not because she hated the show, but rather it forced her to give up a project she was passionate about.
“My words and ill-timing were insensitive to those who are struggling, especially insensitive considering the fact that I used to be in that struggle too,” she wrote.
“I do regret that and it wasn’t nice and I am sorry for that. I know it’s a huge privilege that I even HAVE options—options that FOTB has afforded me.”
