Coffee Lam 林芊妤 Caught Moaning in a Public Toilet
Coffee Lam, somewhat of a Z-lister with small roles in TVB dramas, was having a date with a guy friend (wealthy businessman apparently) and they had dinner at IFC (popular mall in a very central part of HK). Date that included one too many drinks, which led to some flirting, which, led to… teehee… two people in the handicapped bathroom. TVB actress scandal!
Unbeknownst to Ms. Lam was that, a paparazzi had recognized her and had been tailing her from dinner to toilet. During her time in the bathroom moaning away (sounds caught on camera) a small mob of paparazzi had parked themselves in front of the said toilet…
Lots of moaning, and 30 mins later… Not to mention that the audience outside was privy to a conversation that started with Coffee going like this:
I like you, but I don’t think you like me enough, blah blah blah…
Yup, it’s pretty awkward to be caught in this situation…
Coffee finally emerges from the toilet, realizing rather quickly that she’s been caught on camera. Oops!
Her initial story started with:
They are just friends having a “gathering”.
To which the paparazzi retorted incredulously: “In the bathroom?!”
It was then that she later changed her story to him being her boyfriend… Sweetie, which is it?
If you can understand Cantonese, or just want to hear her moaning about in a public toilet:
Few days later, she posted this on FB:
I’m sorry for letting down my friends and family. I will take full responsibility for my actions and will face them. At the same time, I asks for space from the paparazzi and that I will find another living lifestyle.
The whole tone of the message is very solemn and super dramatic, where in reality and what I think personally… is she just did some frisky business in a bathroom.
I don’t think it’s a big deal. Do you? Sure, it was indecent activity, but wouldn’t it suffice to say something along the lines of, “I was a bit drunk, and things got out of hand. As an adult, I take full responsibility of what happened and will see to it that things don’t get to that degree again in the future.”
UPDATE: TVB (the monopoly HK TV channel) exec, Virginia Lok has expressed that due to Ms. Lam’s tainted image, they might have to rearrange her duties (ahem, i think they mean to fire or take her out from the public eye.)
So there you have it. HK thinks it’s a very big deal!
What do you think? Big deal or not?
