Update: Constance Wu has issued a statement clarifying her dismayed reaction to the renewal of "Fresh Off the Boat:" It's not that she doesn't love her show, she says, but that its renewal meant she had to give up a project she "was really passionate about". "Fuck", followed by "Fucking hell".
A fan congratulated Wu on the show's renewal saying it was "great news".
Wu reportedly topped off her tantrum by posting a "dislike" on the show's official Instagram announcement.
This afternoon, ABC has officially renewed "The Rookie", "American Housewife", "Bless This Mess", "Single Parents", and "Fresh Off the Boat" for the 2019-20 season.
In her statement, Wu said she had been "temporarily upset" because the renewal of the sitcom meant she would not be able to pursue another project which would have been more challenging. "I hope you hear them", following her freaky reaction to "Fresh off the Boat" being picked up for a sixth season.

Chinese negotiators have balked at what economists say they might see as giving Washington too much control. That would extend penalties to everything China ships to the United States, its biggest foreign customer.
Wu is next set to appear in the new film Hustlers with Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B. That might be true, but after reading her tweet (screenshotted below), it's hard to have any other interpretation. "I've gotten to fully explore my character and I know her like the back of my hand", she expressed before explaining that portraying Jessica on the show is "fun and easy and pleasant".
The 37-year-old actress, who has been on the show since 2015, seemingly shared her disappointment about the ABC comedy being renewed on social media.
"I do regret that and it wasn't nice and I am sorry for that", she stated, adding that she knows how privileged she is to have options.
Now, Wu is responding to the backlash she has received over these negative tweets. But I do love and enjoy it.
Wu backtracked with another series of tweets, saying her earlier comments were on the heels of a rough day and "ill timed". 'But I do love and enjoy it. I hope you believe me. "For all the fans support, thank u".
"That conflict is part of being human", she said. I appreciate those who have given me the space and faith to believe what I saw about both parts of my heart. "Thank you. It's meaningful when you make the choice to believe women".
