Oscars 2017: Constance Wu calls out Academy over Casey Affleck's nomination

Actress Constance Wu seems to be disgusted by Casey Affleck’s Oscar nomination amidst his past sexual assault allegations.

The 34-year-old actress took to Twitter to slam the Academy just moments after the Manchester by the Sea actor was announced as an Oscar nominee, reported Ace Showbiz.

In a series of tweets she posted, Wu expressed her objection to the Academy for nominating Affleck, who was accused of sexual harassment while working on his documentary titled I’m Still Here.

The Fresh Off the Boat actress claimed that by nominating Affleck, Hollywood’s reinforcing the “industry’s gross and often hidden mistreatment of women.”

She said in another post,

Back in 2010, two women who worked on the mock documentary Affleck directed filed lawsuits against him, accusing him of making “uninvited and unwelcome sexual advances.” The 41-year-old actor’s attorney countered that the suits amounted to extortion, and Affleck denied the allegations. The lawsuits were later dropped after all parties reached an agreement for an undisclosed sum.
