Xian Lim reacts to Gov. Salceda's Facebook post, explains what really happened

Xian Lim is now a hot topic on social media after Governor Joey Salceda of Albay posted on Facebook a bad experience with the actor during the recently-held Fiesta Tsinoy Albay.

The governor's Facebook post read:

Xian Lim says in my face (Atty Carol) while handing the coffee table book in front of many - "I'm not here to promote albay"." If his road manager checks his record, Albay paid for his many guestings since way back 2011 when his talent fee was just P75.000 (Ginoo ni Magayon) and now P350,000 for Fiesta Tsinoy Albay. Its either 1. His parents did not raise him well. 2. He had bad education. 3. He is not managed well. 4. His character is inversely proportional to his looks. 5. He is on something.

Meanwhile on his Twitter account early Friday morning, Xian denied having said the words that the Facebook post quoted him as saying.

Expressing his upset on the controversial post, he explained what really happened.

Xian wrote:

I just read an online article about an incident which is deeply upsetting to me because it doesn't tell the right story. In the article I was quoted as saying "I am not here to promote Albay", something I never said or would ever say. Earlier, the author of the online article handed me a coffee table book of Albay and a tshirt to wear. My exact words to her were "Sorry po, hindi ko maisuot yung tshirt kasi baka magka conflict sa clothing endorsement ko. Pasensya na po". Later on, someone reported her as saying "Ayaw daw nya". I love Albay and I am always happy to be here with its good people. I deeply apologize to gov. Salceda and the people of Albay for the misunderstanding about my reasons for refusal to wear the t shirt.

My parents raised me to be respectful and generous to everyone, and my management has always stressed the virtues of decency and humility. I do not do drugs and have worked hard to get to where I am. If you send me the t shirt and after I have cleared it with my clothing endorsement, I would be more than happy to wear It online and on air. I am also very willing to promote the book of Albay.
