Mr. Talented Guy, Xian Lim catches the attention of the netizens again when he appeared in Banana Nite last night January 30, 2013 for the Chinese New Year Countdown live from the plaza of Sta. Cruz Church, Binondo and refers the Kim Chiu look-a-like as GMA’s teen star Bea Binene. Did he offended the impersonator? How will Bea react on this?
Xian serenades the crowd with his hit single So It’s You. Halfway through the song, he went down the stage to shake hands with members of the crowd.
Towards the end of the song, Charmie Viking, a kalokalike (impersonator) of Kim Chiu joined the actor on stage. She then moved towards Xian and waved at him as the actor kept on singing.
After performing his production number, Xian seemed puzzled by the presence of the young girl onstage with him. He said out loud, “Maraming, maraming salamat! Sino ‘to?”
But he continued with his spiel: “Maraming, maraming salamat guys! Thank you so much! Siyempre, sa lahat ng nandito, Happy Chinese New Year po sa inyong lahat!”
The Kim Chiu kalokalike also greeted the crowd a Happy Chinese New Year.
Xian then addressed the girl, “Ang taas ng energy. Kamusta naman?”
The girl answered, “Okay naman.”
Xian then said with a laugh: “Anong ginagawa ni Bea Binene dito?”
The actor again turned to the crowd to say, “Thank you and have a wonderful Chinese New Year.”
Xian then motioned as if he were about to leave but Jayson Gainza suddenly went up the stage to chat a bit with the young girl and Xian.
Xian told Jayson, “Nag-guest siya from GMA,” before laughing again.
Jayson tried to change the topic by asking Xian to describe the preparations that he did for the Chinese New Year.
Xian responded by saying, “Paano maghahanda nandito pa tayo? Hindi ko pa alam pagkauwi ko mamaya. Malamang may handaan dun.”
Jayson also asked the girl the same question but Xian interjected, “Tanungin natin kung anong teleserye niya sa GMA. Si Bea Binene.”
Due to this incident, netizens on Twitter took their hands on and posted negative comments against the Bride for Rent actor.
Xian fans defended him saying that it was a joke. The actor also posted his apologies to what e had done on that night:
Any reaction netizens?
