While fans gave her their congratulations, she was quick to rebuff one's commentsthat it was "great news", shutting them down with a succinct "No it's not".

"Dislike", Wu wrote under the post, according to Variety.

Following the news that her ABC comedy series " Fresh Off the Boat" will be returning for a sixth season on ABC, the " Crazy Rich Asians" star posted a series of Twitter updates Friday afternoon that indicated her displeasure.

Wu plays Jessica Huang in Fresh Off the Boat, which is the first network sitcom about an Asian-American family to air in 20 years. "People "assumed" that that meant that I don't love and enjoy FOTB".

Although fans may rejoice that ABC's sitcom "Fresh Off the Boat" just got renewed, star Constance Wu is not one of them.

Within the hour, she posted a second tweet: "F-ing hell".

"That other project would have challenged me as an artist - that other project would have been really hard and not easy or pleasant at all", she said, but admitted that her tweetstorm following the announcement of the show's renewal was bad timing and "insensitive to those who are struggling".

"I've always sought artistic challenge over comfort and ease", said Wu in a lengthy message posted to Twitter.

She walked back those remarks shortly thereafter in tweeting how they came "on the heels of a rough day". I love the cast & crew.

Still, she said she recognised why many people were upset over her initial tweets. I'm proud to be a part of it.

"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, in a proper statement, Wu explained why she was "temporarily upset" by the renewal.

As Wu received a mix of both shocked and supportive responses, including some speculating that the renewal may impede her blossoming film career, she tweeted that she wasn't on "a rampage", just that she frequently uses that expletive. For all the fans support, thank u & for all who support my casual use of the word f**k.

An ABC spokesman declined comment, and a Wu representative didn't immediately respond to an email.

"Believe women? You weren't sexually assaulted you were given a multimillion dollar contract extension", tweeted Hollywood Reporter senior writer Seth Abramovitch.
