Jeff Yang speaks up about Constance Wu’s ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ harassment claims

  • Author and CNN Opinion columnist Jeff Yang has spoken out regarding actor Constance Wu’s claims of having experienced sexual harassment on the set of ABC’s hit series “Fresh Off the Boat.”
  • Yang, whose son Hudson Yang played Eddie Huang in the American sitcom, expressed regret for not speaking out when Wu approached him with her allegations at the time.
  • “I didn't know then whether to take what she'd said seriously; I didn't know if I was even intended to hear it,” Yang wrote in a Twitter thread. “But I did hear it, and even as a bystander, I could have pursued it; I could have pushed her to speak up about it. And I did not.”
  • After initially claiming Wu confided in him during the filming of the show’s fifth season, Wu corrected him, clarifying that she approached him during production of Season 2, prior to the #MeToo movement.
  • “Yes & I have a witness as proof it was in season 2 I told you,” Wu wrote. “Thank u for ur correction & apology. It’s ok, I honestly understand & empathize w/ ur inaction/uncertainty bc pre-#metoo none of us knew what to do in those cases, myself included.”
