Kim Chiu, through her official Twitter account denied reports that she snubbed a fan who wanted to have a photo taken with her.
Her Twitter post on August 12 reads: “I don’t like kasi ‘yung feeling na pinipilit nila ‘yung bata na magpa-picture sa akin even if the kid doesn’t really want… tinutulak-tulak nya na ‘yung bata palapit sa akin, ‘yung bata naman AYAW. So sana si mommy na lang nagpa-pic sa akin at least ‘yun okay pa, di na nahirapan yung bata, di na nya tinulak tulak. So what I did, di ko na pinasin si mommy. Kawawa ‘yung bata e. (I didn’t like the feeling that the mom was forcing her child to have a photo taken with me because the kid obviously didn’t want to. It should have been the mom who should have had her photo taken with me, that would have been fine. Because I wasn’t okay with what I saw, I ignored the mom. I felt so sorry for the kid).”
The incident allegedly happened in a grocery store in Taguig.
In a separate interview on “Kris TV,” Kim said taking pictures with her fans is not a big deal for her, but that the above incident was sensationalized.
She added that she was really saddened by the message of a Facebook user saying that she, being a Cebuana, should project a happy and smiling face, but showed otherwise.
