Xixi Lim Doesn’t Think She Was Fat-Shamed In Ah Girls Go Army; Says What’s Hurtful Are Nasty Comments From Netizens

Jack Neo’s new movie Ah Girls Go Army (AGGA) has been accused by netizens of fat-shaming.

In the movie, actress Priscilla Lim — better known as Xixi Lim — plays recruit Yuan Yuan Yuan. In Chinese, 'Yuan' can mean 'round'. Repeat that three times and you will understand why people are criticising the filmmaker for making fat jokes at the expense of the plus-sized Xixi.

A Straits Times review also lambasts the film for making “fun of people who are already made fun of in society”, including “overweight women”.

8days.sg caught up with the 33-year-old star after AGGA’s press conference on Friday to ask what she thinks of the controversy.
