Kim Chiu says Xian Lim affected by critics-A A +A
Friday, February 7, 2014
CEBUANA actress Kim Chiu said that her leading man Xian Lim is affected by reaction of the fans on the comments he made to the former's impersonator during the Chinese New Year episode of "Banana Nite."
Kim said the Kapamilya actor was feeling depressed after reading tweets and messages on social media.
"Sobra siyang malungkot at hindi siya makausap. As in hindi siya kumakain. Hindi ko alam paano siya i-cheer up," she said.
"Hindi natin maiiwasan yun and hindi rin maiiwasan ni Xian na masaktan. Sobrang na down siya dahil ang daming bashers sa Instagram," she added.
The "Bride for Rent" actress said that Xian was not aware when her impersonator joined him on stage. She said the actor was surprised by the turn of events.
"Hindi sinabi sa kanya kung ano yung blocking niya. Hindi rin sinabi sa kanya na may lalabas," Kim said.
To recall, Xian asked Kim's impersonator, "Anong ginagawa ni Bea Binene dito?"
Kim's impersonator was taken aback by the actors comment and remained silent until the show's host Jayson Gainza joined the two on stage.
Gainza tried to deflect the conversation but Xian blurted out "Tanungin natin kung anong teleserye nila sa GMA. Si Bea Binene."
According to Kim, some may not understand Xian's humor but he's nothing like what others portray him on social media.
"Iba yung humor ni Xian and sana wag muna agad silang mag husga ng tao."
After the incident, the actor apologized to his fans for his actions.
"I deeply apologize if I caused negative feelings while singing onstage during the Chinese New Year’s Eve countdown," he tweeted. (Sunnex)
