Xian Lim slammed for rude behavior in Albay, rejecting tourism items

Albay governor Joey Salceda said, Xian Lim's behavior deserves no forgiveness as he insulted the Albayanons during the "Tsinoy Albay Festival" on Thursday.

Allegedly, Xian Lim refused to accept the tourism items handed to him upon his arrival. The package contained a typical souvenir shirt plus a coffee table book promoting Albay province.

Governor Salceda fumed at Lim for his rude behavior towards his chief-of-staff Atty. Caroline Cruz and tourism workers during the Chinese New Year event in Albay.

"Xian Lim says to my face while handing the cofeetable [coffee table] book, ‘I’m not here to promote Albay.’ Bastos siya", Atty. Cruz posted on Facebook on Thursday.

To which, the actor countered by Tweeting:

Contrary to the statements attributed to Lim, he said, his exact words were:

"Sorry po, hindi ko maisuot yung t-shirt kasi baka magka-conflict sa clothing endorsement ko. Pasensiya na po"

However, Gov. Salceda was straight to refute by saying, the actor was not telling the truth.

"All facts are pointing out that he is lying. He was so rude", said Gov. Salceda.

"He refused our hospitality. We are deeply hurt", the governor added.

The governor elucidated:
The mere fact that the coffee table book is titled 'Warm Albay' and the t-shirt (bore the print) 'Warm Albay' should already be obvious that these are typical touristic materials
Moreover, in a Radyo ng Bayan interview with Atty. Cruz, she said, Xian Lim even refused to have his photos taken with any of the welcoming party at the Oriental Hotel where his stay was hosted.

Albay governor said, they expected a rather kind gesture from Lim, knowing they paid him P350,000 as talent fee.
