“Hi Xian! Not speaking in behalf of jd fans/james’ fans pero as someone who will really watch, I wanna see you sana and ms nova villa din sa promos/tours. We want your input din kaya kasi trailer alone it looks so good and I know you all did great, di lang si sg and james.

Xian explains

Xian denied being banned in any ABS-CBN shows or the network itself. He had already visited shows like ASAP and Tonight with Boy Abunda to promote the said movie.

“I got the messages sa IG and Twitter ko, tapos I was wondering bakit ang dami kong messages. A couple were saying na parang they’re wondering, mostly supporters ni Sarah Geronimo and supporters din ni James Reid. They’re wondering, asan daw ako, I’m also part of Miss Granny. Some are worried and some are mad. Bakit ko raw iniwanan yung dalawa sa ere? I think it was just right for me to reply na I didn’t know. I mean, in respect sa mga nagtatanong, they do deserve an aswer to it. Sabi ko, ‘I didn’t know about the guesting. I didn’t know any of that. Thank you for tagging me, pero ‘yun, hindi ko po alam.’ Wala naman po siguro problema sa network. I mean, nakapag-promote naman ako sa ASAP. Just last night, we were at Tonight with Boy Abunda, so I don’t know. But for me, I just explained sa mga itinatanong nila. I was also wondering, kami naghihintay lang kami to be advised.”
