I felt really bad about what I had said, and when some DMs from a fellow Asian actress told me that I would become a blight on the Asian-American community, I started to feel like I didn’t even deserve to live anymore. That I was a disgrace to the AsAms and that they would be better off without me. Looking back, it’s surreal that some DMs talked me into ending my own life, but that’s what happened.

Wu said that she wrote make a scene in order to “reach out and help people talk about uncomfortable things to understand them, take them into account and open paths to healing.”

And we have to stop hitting each other (and ourselves) when we do it,” he continued. “So while my book isn’t always the most flattering portrait, it’s as honest as I know how to be. Because the truth is that I am not balanced or elegant or perfect. i’m emotional i make mistakes…lots of them! After a little break from Hollywood and a lot of therapy, I feel good enough to venture out here again (at least for a while). And even though I’m scared, I’ve decided I owe it to myself from 3 years ago to be brave and share my story so I can help someone with theirs.”
Wu currently stars alongside Chris Pratt in terminal list in Prime Video.
