controversy Friday, January 31, 2014
Actor Xian Lim was deeply apologetic for causing negative feelings after his performance on stage of Banana Nite in time for Chine New Year's eve countdown. The Bride for Rent lead actor posted a series of tweets on his Twitter account @XianLimm early morning of Friday, January 31.
"I deeply apologize if I caused negative feelings while singing onstage during the Chinese New Years Eve countdown..."
"It was not my intention, and I take full responsibility for my actions."
"HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR EVERYONE! :-)"
Xian Lim acknowledged the presence of a Chinese girl on stage of Chinese New Year eve celebration to which he said and asked later, “Maraming, maraming salamat! Sino ‘to?” Lim said while laughing “Anong ginagawa ni Bea Binene dito?” referring to the girl who's more of a look-alike of Bride For Rent co-star Kim Chiu.
Bea Binene is one of the hottest female teen stars of GMA Network.
The actor turned to Jayson (Gainza) and said, "Nag-guest siya from GMA,” before laughing again. Jayson also asked the girl the same question but Xian interjected, “Tanungin natin kung anong teleserye niya sa GMA. Si Bea Binene.”
