Xian Lim sent flowers to Kim Chiu’s kalokalike Charmae Viking and apologized to her after he poked fun at the latter during the Chinese New Year episode of Banana Nite. Xian’s behavior earned him major flak from netizens while the kalokalike star remained tight-lipped about the incident.
Charmae posted a photo of the flowers she received from the actor on her Facebook account on Tuesday. On her status, she thanked Xian for the gesture and stressed that the Bride for Rent star need not worry as everything is already settled. “Hello kuya Xian Lim. Thank you! sa message last week it's okay naman na but still nagpadala ka pa rin ng flowers & letter. Salamat po. Sa effort mo ha? God bless and take care. Always be happy & smile na.”
The actor also wrote a letter to Charmae. "Marami na rin ako nasabi through text na apology but I just want you to know that it is very sincere and it's from the bottom of my heart,” Xian stated.
Xian also sent flowers and said sorry to Bea Binene. The young star’s name was repeatedly mentioned by the actor while poking fun at Charmae during the Banana Nite episode.
“I just want to apologize for what happened during Chinese New Year. I want you to know na I didn’t mean it as an insult noong banggitin ko ang pangalan mo. Thanks po for understanding & sorry for everything,” Xian stated in his letter to Bea.
Banana Nite’s director Bobot Mortiz already spoke up about the incident and underscored that they were also at fault. “Nagulat din si Xian don sa nangyari parang ganon so hindi naman talaga kasalanan ni Xian ‘yung nangyari, may pagkukulang din kami,” he said. The director said they failed to brief Charmae about what she was supposed to do before the show started.
