Bea Binene Thanks Xian Lim For Kalokalike IncidentBea Binene's name has been dragged into the controversy involving Kapamilya actor Xian Lim and Kim Chiu. During his guesting on "Banana Nite," Xian was on stage singing when a Kim Chiu kalokalike contestant went up and stood beside him.
When he was finished greeting the audience already during the show's Chinese New Year special, he asked host Jayson Gainza what "Bea Binene" was doing there. Bea is a contract artist of GMA-7.
Apparently, for Xian, the kalokalike contestant looks more like Bea than Kim, his loveteam partner. He received flak for these comments, prompting him to take to Twitter and apologize for the incident.
Bea finally broke her silence, and thanked Xian for comparing her to Kim. She did not take the comments negatively, she added.
"I have nothing against the both of them. I even wanna thank Xian for mentioning my name."
She also sent a message to the kalokalike contestant. "To the Kalokalike, you are pretty too and I'm happy na kahawig daw kita. Thank you."
Bea even tagged Xian on her post. As of posting, Xian has not replied to the tweet.
Because of her tweets, the hashtag "WeAreProudOfBeaBinene trended on Twitter. Bea thanked her supporters for making her trend.
