Celebs are Low-Key Throwing Shade at Constance Wu on Twitter

Hollywood celebrities are now doing a “Constance Wu” on social media by sharing feigned dissatisfaction over their own show’s season renewal.

Wu recently sparked criticisms after her expressing apparent frustration online over the news that her sitcom “Fresh Off the Boat” will be getting its sixth season.

Many found her words “fucking hell” to be insensitive to other actors and crew members who are not afforded similar opportunities in the entertainment industry.

Now some actors are poking fun at the controversy by using Wu’s words in announcing that their shows were getting picked up or renewed for a new season.  

Joel Kim Booster took to Twitter to share his “disgust” that NBC picked his show “Sunnyside” for the 2019-20 season.

Allison Tolman posted something similar for getting her series “Emergence” picked up.

Sam Lerner did the same for his show “The Golbergs.”

Seth MacFarlane also lampooned Wu for “The Orville’s” renewal.

Rahul Kohli, star in The CW’s “iZombie,” also used Wu’s words to announce a new season.

Meanwhile, Wu has since released a statement to apologize for the comments. In the post, she explained that she was upset not because she hated the show, but because its renewal will force her to give up a project she had been 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.”
