Xian Lim was deeply upset about an article which quoted him saying "I am not here to promote Albay" which he vehemently denied as it was something he would never say.
In a Facebook post of Albay Governor Joey Salceda, Lim was slammed by the governor for allegedly refusing to promote the province. Salceda even brought up how Xian's talent fee ballooned from PHP 75,000 in 2011 to P350,000 this year.
On his Twitter account, Lim clarified that it was not the promotion of the province he refused to do but the t-shirt they wanted him to wear. A coffee table book which came with a t-shirt was handed on to him when he visited the province for Fiesta Tsinoy Albay. According to him,
“My exact words to her were 'Sorry po, hindi ko maisuot yung tshirt kasi baka magka-conflict sa clothing endorsement ko. Pasensya na po,'” saad ni Xian.
But words were different when it reached the author of the book, "Ayaw daw niya." Lim insisted that he loves Albay and will always be happy to be there with its good people. In the end, he apologized to the governor and the people of Albay for a misunderstanding between them.
“I deeply apologize to Gov. Salceda and the people of Albay for the misunderstanding about my reasons for refusal to wear the t shirt.”
In a separate post, Lim also stressed that he was raised by his parents well, be generous to everyone and that his management taught him about decency and humility. This was in connection to Salceda's Facebook post accusing him of not being raised well or that he was on something.
