Richard Yap, better known as “Sir Chief” in ABS-CBN’s hit daytime soap, Be Careful With My Heart, slammed Mic Sy Lim, the man behind FashionPulis.com. Richard Yap reportedly said:
“That guy has no credibility and I’m saying this on his face. He is supposed to be an educated person. He is from La Salle and he’s Chinese but with what he’s doing he’s bringing down the name of the institution he’s working for, his being a Chinese”.
Richard Yap’s outburst stemmed from FP’s swipe at him via a blind item which said that he took advantage of his fans’ generosity by making parinig on his Twitter account about the gadgets and gifts that he would want to receive. Richard Yap answered the blind item by saying:
“I’ve heard that and if you can go through all my tweets ay wala akong hinihingi sa kahit na kanino. As much as possible ‘pag me nagsabi na ‘what do you want?’ ang sinasabi ko ‘you don’t need to bring anything,’ At saka lahat ng meron ako ay meron na ako nu’ng hindi pa ako pumasok ng showbiz. ‘Yung bahay ko, ‘yung mga kotse ko… Hindi ako nagba-brag. When I was still in kindergarten ay may Rolex na ako so I don’t have to ask from anyone and kaya kong trabahuhin lahat ito. Sa tingin ba niya, ang binibigay ng fans ‘yun lang ang ano ang gusto kong hingin sa fans?”
