Media coverage

Playing a plus-sized character in Ah Girls Go Army (2022)

In 2022, Xixi Lim starred in the Jack Neo film, Ah Girls Go Army and played the character, Yuan Yuan Yuan. The movie was criticised by locals for allegedly fat-shaming Xixi’s character, especially as the character’s name meant “round” in Chinese.[27]

However, Xixi herself begged to differ. She instead believed that the role could help to raise the self esteem of other plus-sized women like herself, as it showed that contrary to stereotypes, they also had “great stamina” and the potential to excel in physical activities.

“My character’s name was meant to be funny but some people think that it’s making fun of my body. When I saw that, I thought to myself: Even if my character wasn’t called Yuan Yuan Yuan, people would still make fun of or comment on my body. I don’t see an issue with the name itself and I do think that it’s one that you can remember easily”.[27]

Standing up for herself and speaking out against haters (2022)

In 2022, Xixi was featured on 8days, The Straits Times, and Mothership after she publicly exposed a hater who had been harassing her for a while. She responded to the anonymous user who had been repeatedly fat-shaming her across a period of time, by posting message receipts on her Instagram stories. Derogatory terms and insults like “elephant” and “Mini and Xixi is not something I will put together” were used.[28][29][30]

“Hello sister, I’m so sorry I kept missing your DMs and haven’t given you your wanted attention since. So today, I’m gonna give my fullest attention and address to you.”[28][29][30]
