Constance Wu Claims She Tried Suicide Due To Twitter Backlash.
Constance Wu, who is most known for her work in Hustlers and Crazy Rich Asians, has recently made an appearance on social media after a three-year sabbatical, explaining that her absence was caused by an attempt on her own life that she made after getting harsh criticism online in 2019.
When I made irresponsible comments regarding the renewal of my TV program three years ago, it sparked indignation and internet humiliation that became rather harsh, Wu stated on Twitter. As a result, Wu was reluctant to return to social media.
She wrote, "I was frightened to get back on social media because I nearly died from it."
I felt terrible about what I'd said, and after receiving a few direct messages from other Asian actresses accusing me of defiling the Asian American community, I began to believe that I didn't deserve to live.
That they'd be better off without me and that I was a disgrace to AsAms.
She noted that after the experience, she "reassessed a lot" and decided to put her acting career on pause in order to concentrate on her mental health.
Although Asian Americans are eager to applaud victories in representation, there is a lot of avoidance in our society, according to the speaker.
Even my tweets turned into such a sensitive topic that the majority of my AsAm colleagues decided to avoid or ice me out.
"I'll admit that it hurt a lot, but it also made me realize how crucial it is to reach out to and show support to those who are struggling.
"I feel okay enough to return on here after taking a little break from Hollywood and receiving a lot of therapy" (at least for a little bit).
And even though I'm afraid, I've decided that I owe it to the version of myself from three years ago to have courage and tell my experience in the hopes that it would encourage someone else to do the same.
