Constance Wu: I Was Sexually Harassed by a Fresh Off the Boat Production Member for Years ...

Constance Wu revealed in her memoir Making a Scene that a member of the Fresh Off the Boat production team sexually harassed her for years.

Wu claims to have assumed his authority over her, demanded she approve all her business ventures, and told her what to wear. She claims she initially saw him as a friend and mentor, but she later became worried about what might happen if she didnt comply.

Fresh Off the Boat was my first television program. Wu told The New York Times that I was thrown into this world. I dont have parents in the business. People thought I was 30, so it made me paranoid and embarrassed.

Wu's thigh was touched at a sporting event in 2015 and her crotch area was later grazed by a production team member. The argument was whether or not she would accompany him to a film festival. ABC has declined to comment on the allegations.

Wu tweeted, Fucking hell, and Im literally crying. Ugh. Fuck. after the ABC sitcom was renewed for a sixth season. Todays tweets were on the heels of a difficult day&were ill-timed w/the news of the show. Im proud to be a part of it. For all who support my casual use of the word fuck, thank you.

Wu's self-proclaimed careless tweets were greeted with outrage, causing Wu to seek suicide.

The actress of Crazy Rich Asians spoke with the New York Times about her Fresh Off the Boat journey.

Wu said that I try not to make myself out to be a hero. I try to make myself out to be a fairly normal person who has flaws like everyone else. Im this person who was humble and just kept working. I was the victim. It's less black and white than simply victim and perpetrator.

Wu addressed racism in Hollywood, as well as being told that she was a disgrace to Asian Americans and a scourge of the community.

When I didnt get a part, I never thought it was because I wasnt Asian. I always assumed it was because I was not beautiful enough or gifted enough, Wu said. I understand how the machine works. I think that casting decisions have more to do with public perception and social media numbers.

Wu continued, it was almost gleeful. It was almost as if they were preparing to crush me down. I think the Asian community in Hollywood is still hyper-focused on positive representation, which to me is an illusion. Human representation as a whole is more complex.

Wu is currently staring in The Terminal List and the upcoming film Lyle, Lyle Crocodile. She is also staring in East Bay, a narrative by writer/director Daniel Yoons about the son of Asian immigrants living in the Bay Area who is going through a coming-of-age crisis. Wu is also set to reprise her role in Crazy Rich Asians for the sequel.
