Kim Chiu opens up on how Xian Lim helped her during ‘Bawal Lumabas’ ordeal

Early May, Kim Chiu was hit with criticism for the delivery of her sentiments, where she cited a classroom situation, during an online protest event.

Thankfully, the Kapamilya star’s boyfriend and onscreen partner Xian Lim was just one call away. 

“Parang yun na yata ang pinakamarami kong tawag sa kanya. Para siyang sponge, kapag may problema ako, nalilipat ko sa kanya,” she said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon. 

The 30-year-old actress said Xian experienced anxious feelings during her whole “Bawal Lumabas’ ordeal. 

“Tapos siya yung nagkaka-anxiety. Buti na lang lagi ko siyang kausap, lagi kami nagkukuwentuhan. Ina-advise niya rin ako, kasi siya din binash din siya dati ng mga tao,” she shared. 

In a past Instagram post, Xian came to the defense of Kim after the nonstop bashing. 

“Kim does not deserve to be singled out and get all the hate she is getting from people in the internet. She is a smart, empathetic person who deeply cares for all the people around her,” he said.

Here's my two cents on everything that's happening right now. . We hit the 11K+ mark of positive cases in our country. People are STILL getting sick and dying all over the world. 5th of May, ABS-CBN went dark under the orders of the government. Now, I am not here to give my opinion on who I think is right or wrong. I do not have the educational background in this field or enough facts to support any claims but what I do have is my observation on what our society has become. . Amidst the Pandemic, people are throwing hurtful words back and forth hoping that an issue will be resolved through insults, rage, hate, fake news etc. . With all the second hand information going around, it turned us all into critics and so-called experts. No need to say much about that. . A few days ago, a couple of artists went live on social media and received numberous amount of hate. Let me say this, It takes a whole lot of guts to face millions of people and fight for what you truly believe in. Most people won't even have that opportunity in their lifetime. . Kim does not deserve to be singled out and get all the hate she is getting from people in the internet. She is a smart, empathetic person who deeply cares for all the people around her. She cares so much that it scares me. . We are not perfect. No one is. We have our share of mishaps that shake us down to the ground but we learn and we rise back up again. My love and support goes out to Kim for being a wonderful human being. . Lastly, tigilan na natin ang paninira sa kapwa dahil hindi ito nakakatulong sa sitwasyon ngayon. Tulungan nalang natin ang isat isa sa kahit anong paraan at tigilan na ang pininisi at paninira kay ganito't ganyan. Hindi perpekto ang systema. Hindi perpekto ang mundo. . We have little time in our hands. It's really a matter of asking yourself how well you want to be remembered when your time is up.

Despite the public lashing, Kim said she tried her best to remain positive. 

“At the end of the day, tinitingnan ko na lang yung brighter side. Ang daming nag-a-unfold na opportunities because this ‘bawal lumabas’ bashing turned into something bright and sunny,” she said. 

“Nalungkot lang ako because people are really putting you down. Sa dami nang sinabi na one hour and thirty minutes na kuda namindoon sa live video na yon, isang mali lang, bobo ka na in your entire life. Parang, ‘Uy! Sandali lang! Ikaw din naman, nagkakamali ka,’” Kim added. 

Kim went on to release a full song version as well as merchandise for a cause inspired by her Bawal Lumabas statement.
