MANILA, Philippines – Actress Kim Chiu said she did not cut in line when she completed the voters' registration process in late October.
This was in response to a video that circulated online, alleging that the actress cut in line at a voters' registration site in Marikina.
In the video, Kim is seen going through the registration process while a man asks why Kim got to register before everyone else in line. There was no direct response to the man's question.
Later, a woman in charge at the registration site says that they were supposed to open at 11 am. The man replies that they were originally told that the registration would open at around 8 to 9 am.
He follows it up by accusing the people in charge at the registration of letting Kim cut the line, saying, "Inuna niyo pa yung artista na hindi pumila (You let the celebrity who didn't line up go first)."
GALAWANG ARTISTA = GALAWANG VIP GALING SA INBOX: KAPAG ARTISTA, PWEDE NA LAHAT!Nangyari ang insidenteng ito noong oktubre 27, 2015. Matagal naghintay ang mga tao sa isang lugar sa Marikina para makapag parehistro sa darating na botohan. Noong nag sisimula na ang processing, may biglaang dumating na artista itago na lang natin sa pangalang "Kim Chiu" (hahaha) So ayun dahil artista nga hindi nya na kailangan pumila. Nakakaawa yung mga taong naghintay makapag parehistro ng maaga lalong lalo na yung mga matatanda parang tinaboy lang para paunahin si Tsinita Princess. #OnlyinthePhilippines"Pag artista ka di ka na kailangan pumila!!! dito lang yan sa comelec marikina.Pati senior citizens kawawa sa kanila.
