Hollywood
actor
Constance
Wu
has
revealed
that
she
attempted
suicide
in
2019
after
she
was
heavily
trolled
for
her
posts
on
social
media.
The
“Crazy
Rich
Asians”
actor
returned
to
Twitter
on
Thursday,
almost
three
years
after
she
received
backlash
over
her
tweets
on
the
renewal
of
her
series
“Fresh
Off
the
Boat”.

In
a
statement,
Wu
announced
her
upcoming
book
“Making
a
Scene”
and
said
she
was
“afraid”
to
return
to
social
media
as
she
almost
lost
her
life
because
of
it.
“I
was
afraid
of
coming
back
on
social
media
because
I
almost
lost
my
life
from
it:
3
years
ago,
when
I
made
careless
tweets
about
the
renewal
of
my
TV
show,
it
ignited
outrage
and
internet
shaming
that
got
pretty
severe,”
Wu
wrote.

“I
felt
awful
about
what
I’d
said,
and
when
a
few
DMs
from
a
fellow
Asian
actress
told
me
I’d
become
a
blight
on
the
Asian
American
community,
I
started
feeling
like
I
didn’t
even
deserve
to
live
anymore.
That
I
was
a
disgrace
to
AsAms,
and
they’d
be
better
off
without
me.
Looking
back,
it’s
surreal
that
a
few
DMs
convinced
me
to
end
my
own
life,
but
that’s
what
happened.
Luckily,
a
friend
found
me
and
rushed
me
to
the
ER,” she
added.

In
2019,
Wu
had
reacted
negatively
after
her
show
“Fresh
Off
the
Boat” was
renewed
for
a
sixth
season.
After
news
of
the
renewal
broke,
Wu
had
tweeted,
“So
upset
right
now
that
I’m
literally
crying.
Ugh.
F**k.”
When
a
fan
responded
by
saying
that
it
was
“great
news,”
she
replied,
“No
it’s
not.”
The
40-year-old
actor
said
the
“scary
moment”
made
her
“reassess
a
lot
in
my
life”
as
she
decided
to
take
a
break
from
acting
and
focus
on
her
mental
health.

“AsAms
don’t
talk
about
mental
health
enough.
While
we’re
quick
to
celebrate
representation
wins,
there’s
a
lot
of
avoidance
around
the
more
uncomfortable
issues
within
our
community.
Even
my
tweets
became
a
subject
so
touchy
that
most
of
my
AsAm
colleagues
decided
that
was
the
time
to
avoid
me
or
ice
me
out.
“I’ll
admit
it
hurt
a
lot,
but
it
also
made
me
realize
how
important
it
is
to
reach
out
and
care
for
people
who
are
going
through
a
hard
time,”
she
added.

Wu,
who
recently
featured
in
Chris
Pratt-starrer
series
“The
Terminal”,
said
after
“a
little
break
from
Hollywood
and
a
lot
of
therapy”,
she
felt
“OK
enough”
to
return
to
social
media.
“And
even
though
I’m
scared,
I’ve
decided
that
I
owe
it
to
the
me-of-3-years-ago
to
be
brave
and
share
my
story
so
that
it
might
help
someone
with
theirs,”
she
concluded
her
statement.
