“Banana Nite” director Frasco Mortiz speaks on the Xian Lim-Kim Chiu ‘kalokalike’ incident on the show

Director Frasco Mortiz,after 3 days, finally clarified the issue happened at the Chinese New Year live episode of “Banana Nite” involving Xian Lim and Kim Chiu ‘kalokalike’ Charmaine Viking.

Xian Lim’s guesting in “Banana Nite” on a Chinese New year earned flak from netizens because of his rude and ungentlemanly behavior towards Kim Chiu ‘kalokalike’ Charmaine Viking which he called ‘Bea Binene.’ Based on the video of that episode, Xian poked fun at Charmaine after the actor performed a song in the said live show to welcome the Chinese New Year. The actor, however, apologized after the incident in a series of Twitter posts.

Just few minutes ago, Direk Frasco Mortiz took Twitter to clarify this issue.

Here’s the message:

Received some tweets about the issue regarding Xian Lim and Kim’s Kalokalike on Banana Nite’s Chinese New Year coverage..

…on our part, it was a gimmick for Xian’s song number, we wanted to surprise him with Kim’s Kalokalike. Xian’s reaction wasn’t scripted…

…i’m sure Xian didn’t mean any harm with his remarks and jokes on stage. Nag apologize na rin siya, kaya ok na ang lahat.

…we apologized to Charmaine after the segment. She told our staff it was ok and understood the fact na hindi lang nasakyan yung gag…

…kaya sana, huwag na palakihin ang issue.

Here’s the screencap of the post:
