"F-k." When a person congratulated her on the show's renewal and called it "great news", she replied, "No it's not".

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.

Inspired by a true story, "Fresh Off the Boat" stars Randall Park as Louis Huang, Constance Wu as Jessica Huang, Hudson Yang as Eddie Huang, Forrest Wheeler as Emery Huang, Ian Chen as Evan Huang, Lucille Soong as Grandma Huang, Chelsey Crisp as Honey and Ray Wise as Marvin.

Constance Wu received some devastating news Friday: Her popular sitcom "Fresh Off the Boat" was renewed for a sixth season. In addition to the Crazy Rich Asians sequel in development, Wu also stars in Hustlers with Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, and more. "Ugh", she tweeted on Saturday, followed by expletives. She elaborated by saying that as much as she loved Fresh Off the Boat, it's "fun and easy and pleasant", and she was excited by an opportunity that would have been more of an "artistic challenge".

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.

Update: Wu has since clarified, suggesting that people are making "assumptions" about what she said.

Since then, Kim has accused Washington of acting in "bad faith" and given it until the end of the year to change its approach. Kim declared an end to the testing of nuclear weapons and long-range missiles during rapid rapprochement previous year .

She also tweeted, "Today's tweets were on the heels of rough day & were ill timed w/the news of the show. Stop assuming", she stated to her followers, before sending another Tweet expressing her love for the cast and crew, as well as revealing she is thrilled to continue with FOTB.

Wu has denied that the renewal of "Fresh Off the Boat" caused her to be upset on social media.

"People "assumed" that that meant I don't love and enjoy FOTB".

She wrote: "I do regret that and it wasn't nice and I am sorry for that".

Wu has not further addressed the controversy, and her publicist did not respond to a request for comment by press time. She also sent out a series of tweets around the same time, most of which can not be printed in a family newspaper. "Thank you. It's meaningful when you make the choice to believe women".

In addition to deleting the "No it's not" tweet and the Instagram comment, Wu has since tweeted, "That was not a rampage, it was just how I normally talk".
