“Fresh Off the Boat” star Constance Wu was outraged over Casey Affleck’s Best Actor Oscar nomination for “Manchester by the Sea,” and she took to Twitter to go after him and The Academy.

Wu’s issues with the nomination stem from 2010 sexual harassment allegations against Affleck. 

“Men who sexually harass women 4 OSCAR!” she tweeted. “Bc good acting performance matters more than humanity,human integrity! Bc poor kid rly needs the help!”

Affleck denied all allegations against him and settled a civil suit with his accuser out of court for an undisclosed sum. 

Wu ranted, "Boys! BUY ur way out of trouble by settling out of court!Just do a good acting job,thats all that matters!bc Art isn't about humanity,right?"

In a longer post, Wu added: “He’s running for an award that honors a craft whose purpose is examining the dignity of the human experience & young women are deeply human."

The actress called out the Oscars committee and said the voters should not "reinforce the industry’s gross and often hidden mistreatment of women."

Wu said she was advised not to discuss Affleck any further -- though she didn't say by who. 

"I've been counseled not to talk about this for career's sake. F my career then, I'm a woman & human first. That's what my craft is built on."

This isn't the first time in recent months that Affleck's years-old allegations have been brought up. His name came up when "Manchester by the Sea" earned a Golden Globe nod and Nate Parker’s “Birth of a Nation” did not. Parker was acquitted of rape in a 2001 criminal case, and some social media users speculated racism was to blame for Parker being left of the nominations list. 

The Academy and reps for Casey Affleck declined Fox News’ requests for comment.
