**Trigger Warning - this story discusses sexual harassment.**

During an appearance at The Atlantic Festival, Crazy Rich Asians actress Constance Wu opened up about her traumatic experience on the set of hit TV series 'Fresh Off The Boat.'


She says she faced "sexual harassment and intimidation" from an unnamed producer during the first two seasons of the comedy series.


"A few people knew [the harassment] was happening, and to go to work every day and see those people who knew that he was sexually harassing me being ‘buddy-buddy’ with him felt like a betrayal every time,” says Wu, "I loved everybody on that crew, and I loved working on that show, but it had that history of abuse, that it started with, and even though I handled it after two years, I was looking forward to a clean slate."

Wu says she "kept my mouth shut for a really long time," as she didn't want to "stain the reputation of the show."


"That show was historic for Asian Americans," she says, "it was the only show on network television in over 20 years to star Asian Americans and I did not want to sully the reputation of the one show we had representing us."
