“I’m an actress — I can be dramatic,” she said.

“I mean, that’s our toolkit, right? I’m dramatic. I’m emotional.”

The controversy started in May when Wu took to Twitter to complain about the ABC comedy series snagging a renewal for a sixth season. 

"So upset right now that I’m literally crying. Ugh. F–k,” she tweeted.

“F–king hell,” she said in a later tweet. She followed that up by responding to a fan who said the renewal was "great news" by saying "No it's not."

As if that wasn't bad enough, she then hit up the official Instagram account for the series, commenting "Dislike" on a post announcing the renewal.

Understandably, fans were confused by the whole fiasco, prompting Wu to later open up about what really went down. 

“I was temporarily upset… not because I hate the show but because its renewal meant I had to give up another project that I was really passionate about," she said.

"People can hold conflicting feelings in their hearts: I can both love the show/cast/crew but at the same time be disappointed that I lost that other unrelated job.”

Many questioned what the other project could be, and Wu has now revealed that it was a play and not a feature film. 

“There is an expectation of the way that I ought to behave, and not just of perfection but of graciousness,” she shared.

“And I am grateful. But am I elegant? No. I think I can be verbally eloquent sometimes, but as a human, am I an elegant person? No.”

Case closed, we guess?
