Xian Lim Hit By Netizens For Behavior On "Banana Nite"Xian Lim drew flak from netizens because of the way he acted during a "Banana Nite" episode where he was the guest.
After performing and greeting the audience Happy Chinese New Year, a Kim Chiu look-a-like went onstage and stood beside Xian.
The actor, the star of "Bride For Rent," then asked what was Bea Binene doing there? Bea is a contract artist of GMA-7.
The look-a-like is supposedly a better knock off of Bea than Kim.
He then turned to the crowd and thanked them again for being there. When host Jayson Gainza went onstage to interview Xian, he asked what are his plans for the Chinese New Year.
Xian has Chinese blood. The actor said he doesn't know yet since he's still there performing. Jayson turned to the look-a-like and asked her plans, Xian intervened and said they should ask what she was doing there and if there are any teleseryes from GMA-7 that will be showing.
At this point, the episode ended already. However, netizens were offended by Xian's actions. Most of them "feel" for the girl who was seemingly humiliated by the actor.
Some, however, defended Xian and said he was seen rushing to a next showbiz commitment. But during commercial break, those who attended the concert saw Xian guiding the look-a-like down from the stage.
Xian took to his Twitter account to apologize for what happened. He said he didn't mean to offend anyone and that he is taking full responsibility for his actions.
This is not the first time Xian was involved in an incident where his behavior and attitude were questioned.
