MANILA - "No forgiveness deserved." This is the message of Albay Governor Joey Salceda to Xian Lim after the actor refused to wear a shirt promoting their province.
In his Facebook page, Salceda claimed that Lim insulted his staff from the Provincial Tourism and Cultural Affairs Office and his fellow Albayanos when he did not accept the Albay shirt and coffee table book.
"We expected something better from him since he is not a terrorist, instead an artist. No forgiveness deserved," he wrote.
On Twitter, Lim apologized to Salceda and the people of Albay, explaining that he refused to wear the souvenir shirt to avoid conflict with his clothing endorsement.
