Albay governor Joey Salceda slammed Xian Lim on Facebook on Friday for the ABS-CBN actor’s alleged rude behavior against his chief-of-staff and tourism workers during the provincial government’s Chinese New Year event on Thursday.

He also dismissed Lim’s apology on Twitter and accused him of lying over claims he refused to wear an Albay souvenir shirt even though Lim was paid a P375,000 fee to perform and help boost the provincial government’s tourism promotion.

Salceda said it was customary for honored guests to receive a “Warm Albay” shirt and coffeetable book courtesy of Albay’s Provincial Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office upon arrival.

However, this gesture allegedly provoked a hostile response from the actor, who arrived in Legazpi wearing a black hoodie and dark shades as though he didn’t wish to be recognized.

“Xian Lim says to my face while handing the cofeetable book, ‘I’m not here to promote Albay.’ Bastos siya,” Atty. Caroline Cruz, Salceda’s chief of staff, immediately posted on Facebook on Thursday afternoon.

Lim took to Twitter shortly after to dispute Cruz’s statement. He denied saying “I’m not here to promote Albay”.

“My exact words to her were, ‘Sorry po hindi ko maisuot yung T-shirt kasi po baka magka conflict sa clothing endorsement ko. Pasensya na po.’… 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,” he tweeted.

Amid calls to declare the actor a persona non grata in Albay, Salceda was not appeased.

“Ordinary staff ng PTCAO ang ininsulto at hiniya ni Xian Lim. Together with ordinary Albayanos, they are the ones who work hard, silently and patiently for Albay tourism,” the governor said on Facebook on Friday morning.

“Based on the prevarications on his posts, he is not getting it. 1. Hindi namin pinapasuot ang T-shirt sa guests. Binibigay lang 2. The mere fact that coffee book table is called Warm Albay and the T-shirt is Warm Albay should already be obvious that these are typical touristic materials… No forgiveness deserved,” Salceda added.

    kaya bihira ako manuod ng TV at Movie, kasi feeling ko binibigyan ko ang artista ng kapangyarihan para i angat ang sarili nila sa akin... *** foreign films nalang ang papanoorin ko atleast if bastusin ako dapat level lang ni Angelina Jolie or ni Beyonce..

    feeling sikat at importante kasi si ateng masyado. now, kabangga nya ay bakla rin, ano pa kaya ang mangyayari?!
  • Grabe! 350,000 pesos talent fee for one day wala kang gagawin kundi ngumiti, kumanta paminsan ng isang bes at mag pacute. Whew! Ang Hirap pala kumita ng pera ng artista! :rolleyes:

    Tapos binibigyan ka na ng souvenirs, di ka naman inobliga na suotin, yun Lang tanggapin mo mga binigyan sa ito at kahit papano Sa 350k na TF mo ay masabi mo man na Warm Albay or I love Albay. Tapos ang excuse conflict daw sa clothing endorsement nya, eh, hindi naman clothing endorsement yung tshirt na may tag na Warm Albay. Yung totoo Xian, gusto mo Lang yata magpa dagdag ng TF para sabihing I love Albay. Aba, sobra na yata yan, di mo na nga deserve ang 35ok na TF mag inarte ka pa. Wow na wow ka talaga. Sayang bayad sa iyo ng gobyerno ng Albay, kahit 75k Di mo deserve ha, wala kang talent.:naughty:

    I don't like xian but I give him credit for his stand on this issue. kapag ikaw ay nakakontrata sa isang clothing line or any kind of products like drinks, foods, cars, electronics, etc. iyun lang ang dapat mong ipakita sa publico na ginagamit or kinakain mo. kapag hindi mo sinunod pwede kang imaidemanda ng breach of contract. siguro kung ang t-shirt ay tatak ng kanyang clothing endorsement he'll proudly wear it. isapa, business is business, nandon sya para mag-entertyain ng mga taga-Albay. kung ipro-promote niya ang tourism para kumita ng pera ang probinsya, that's not on his job description according to the contract made between his manager and the province. that's another job that's demand fee.

    Ang sabi nung attorney ni representative gov. She tried to give the shirt and others as souvenirs he was not asked nor forced to wear it. As a sign of respect of course dapat nagpakita man Lang sya ng appreciation. Hindi porke bayad ka at trabaho Lang pinunta mo ganun ang isasagot mo. Eh kung wala yun sa kontrata for sure aware dun ang staff NI gov at NI gov Mismo. Yan din ang Hirap sa mga artistang nakatikim ng kasikatan, kelangan Lahat may kabayaran.

    LOL. Eh di nakahanap si malditang Xian ng katapat niya na mas maldita pa sa kanya!

    Dapat 'wag nang lumabas ng bahay si Xian kapag Lunar New Year. Malas siya sa ganitong panahon eh.

    medyo oa lang naman ang gov. ng albay.

    liit liit na bagay, persona non grata na agad?
    i think, wag na nilang tangkilikin si xian should be fine.
    para kasing pang power trip ang persona nan grata thing.

    for xian, di din kasi magpaka-humble, feeling nasa ere lagi kaya ayan ang napala.tinanggap na lang sana nia yung shirt.

    pero.... na-explain din kaya ng goverment side ng albay na souvenir lang yung shirt at di required suotin?

    mahirap kasi sa ganito, may 2 sides, di mo matitiyak kung ano talaga ang totoo. hahaha

    sino mas mataray, Xian or PNoy?
  • TTJ__TTJ__ Taming The Johnson PExer
    Souvenir lang pala bakit kelangan idescribe isa isa? Di na lang ilagay sa bag at ibigay sa handler ni Xian. Wala bang empleyado ang albay govt na naghahandle ng ganitong mga issues? Bakit kelangang gobernador? Nagbabalak bang maging senador yan at nagpapapansin?

    Nabulgar pa ang ginagastos nila para sa mga artistang bisita nila. Since malamang hindi lang si Xian ang imbitado, magkano ang budget nila para lang sa mga artista?
  • Corrrect!Corrrect! Member PExer
    Diversion tactic lang 'to. Ang totoo eh gustong chupain ni Governor si Xian pero hindi pumayag. :glee:
  • skye_phoenixskye_phoenix 荒れ狂う稲光のシェルミー PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Eh yung book? Magkaka problema din ba yun sa endorsment nya, may libro ba syang iniindorse? :rotflmao:

    Dapat lang na hindi ilihim ang masamang ugali ng mga artista, para alam ng mga tao kung sino dapat suportahan at sino i boycott.

    At nandun sya dahil binabayaran sya, di ba obligasyon din nya maging mabuti pakikitungo sa mga tao na nag bayad para pumunta sya dun at mag pa cute? :rolleyes:

    pero baka diversion lang tong issue na to, alam mo naman ang pinoy, madaling makalimutan ang tunay na problema ng bansa basta may sumabog na SHOWBIZ issues. hahahaha.

    Malamang totoo yan. hehehe

    Ang OA ni Gov Salceda imbes siya ang mag appease sa staff niya at pagkasunduin lahat siya pa itong nagiging gatong sa away na sa totoo lang wala naman talagang issue. It's all about ego, ego nung attorney at ni governor.

    [Deleted the non-showbiz-related discussion. Post that on LAFI. Thanks! - starczamora]

    Kung ngayon lang nangyari to pwedeng mahirap pa paniwalaan. Kaso, pang ilan na ba? Pangalawa? Pangatlo? Same issues - pambabastos. Tsk tsk

    :eh::eh::eh::eh::eh::eh::eh:

    Never liked Xian Lim kahit gwapo pa siya. And simula nung na love team si Kim Chiu dito, nawala na din amor ko kay Kim since nung PBB Teen days pa.
