Constance Wu, an actress best known for her role in Crazy Rich Asians, has disclosed that in 2019, social media backlash nearly forced her to commit suicide.

Constance received backlash in 2019 for her nasty remarks over the revival of her show Fresh Off the Boat.

The actor is set to launch her upcoming book, titled Making a Scene.

In a recent statement, she said, "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.”

She added, "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.

She added, "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." 

In 2019, Constance had tweeted about the sixth season of the series and said "So upset right now that I'm literally crying. Ugh. F**k."
