Coffee Lam Admits She Has Been Fired by TVB

Coffee Lam (林芊妤) was officially fired by TVB after meeting with management executives yesterday. The 24-year-old artiste had a chance to explain her 30-minute public restroom scandal with rich heir Will Lam (林知譽). After a discussion that lasted nearly two hours, TVB decided to terminate Coffee’s management contract.

Arriving at TVB City just before noon yesterday, Coffee was not spotted leaving until 1:40 p.m. Surrounded by the press, she revealed the termination of her contract and expressed, “I’m thankful towards TVB for cultivating me throughout the past six years. This is a big lesson and a misunderstanding [on my part]. I should have returned to the company and explained the incident as soon as it happened, but I chose to handle it immaturely.”

Coffee added that she will respect the company’s decision and wished the media would give her space. “TVB has been really nice to me. I’m truly touched and would like to thank those who cared for me. Actually, there is nothing more to say since the incident happened a long time ago. Give my family and I some space.” Currently lacking future plans, Coffee will take a mental and physical break.

In a hurry to dodge the crowd of reporters, Coffee awkwardly boarded the wrong car while waiting for a taxi. Embarrassed by her actions, she helplessly stepped out and continued to wait. In the meantime, Coffee refused to answer any questions regarding Will Lam. When a taxi finally arrived, she exclaimed, “Don’t follow my car. I just lost my career, and I don’t want to waste money driving around in circles. Help me save my money. I’m not heading home no matter what.”

      its not about being conservative or not…she’s a public figure afterall. Private life, yeah it is, but if she really did have sex in the public toilet, that’s already illegal isnt it? The fact that she chose to avoid and irresponsibly run away from the incident leaving her company having to chase after her for answers,well isnt that quite unacceptable?

      Had she immediately handled the situation by explaining to her company so that the company PERHAPS may help her clear some misunderstanding, then the outcome may not have been so bad.

      But then again, I dont see how her career would have been redeemed since her image has already been tarnished from the incident..i

        Robert Downey Jr’s career would have been 10 times over if in TVB. BUT different standards for man and woman. Imagine if Coffee is a guy. He will escape this. I mean look at Him Law. Still here. If Him Law was a woman beating perhaps her lover, ahhhhhh career over. I feel TVB is hypocrite. She should have been defended and allowed to make a statement with the backing of the company. Instead the company regurgitated her and cast her aside like some pariah because she is not famous. Yes she did something wrong but not enough to be fired because I never knew TVB was a paragon of moral virtue. Ok more virtous than ATV. ATV stable of Miss ATVs were as controversial but TVB never outright do this.

        So let’s guess how Shirley could have parted way with TVB. TVB treated her well? My foot. She was pushed out because not famous, no use.

      • lol replied:

        I don’t think it’s TVB’s different standards for man and woman. Rather it’s different standards based on level of fame. Not famous means easily dispensible, no need to give second chance or chance to explain, out you go. Famous means black will be painted as white and everything conveniently forgotten eventually. You probably know who are the people I’m referring to. Some even have more than one scandal, but they’re still around.

    I do have to admit that before the restroom-incident, I had no idea who she is. And then it’s kinda sad to hear that she has been with TVB for 6 years.

    I do understand that TVB has fired her over this incident, since TVB is pretty conservative and is virginizing all artists, male and female.

    But what I never understood about this whole thing is the paparazzi all showed up at that public restroom. Is she really that interesting or famous to be followed into a restroom? Or does the paparazzi had nothing else to do?

    • Lily replied:

      What is it so difficult to understand?

      The problem is that Coffee and her so-called boyfriend went inside a bathroom TOGETHER. If they simply had their dinner and went home, the paparazzi will report it as if they’re possibly dating. However, they made a dumb move and decided to have a “gathering” in a PUBLIC restroom. If you watched the video, you will see that the paparazzi has been following them since they were eating dinner in a restaurant. They probably didn’t expect something like this to happen either.

      You have to understand that these paparazzi are working too. That is their job. It’s a horrible job, but they need some spontaneous gossips in order to have some money. When you see some ke le fe or anybody having a quickie in a public area, they are bound to gather in the bathroom and report it to the rest of the world.

        @Lily

        I agree with most of what you said. However, I cannot agree with the part about the paps working too. to follow others to the bathrooms for pictures and a story is beyond disgusting, no matter what that person/s was doing in there.

        First thing when I read your comment on mine was: You got be be kidding me: there is a video about this?!?
        But then I took a closer look at the first article about this and there was a link.
        Okay, they obvious had sex in the restroom.

        But then again: Is it me or does she look different in the video comparing to her selfies?
        I do find it strange that paparazzi has spotted a ‘kelefe’ as her in a busy mall and took the effort to follow her into the restroom. It’s a big restroom where they could have both went to a separate booth.
        And then it would be really gutter journalism: following a kalefe to the restroom…

    People and media should just stop hounding her.

    It’s easy to slip into a major mood slump since everything changed around her so suddenly.

    The girl has enough on her plate to deal with. I’d betcha the guy will dump her too, or is distancing himself gradually, yet trying not to look like a cowardly jerk.

    It’s NOT like other people have not made such foolish mistakes … it’s just other people don’t know about because they’re not celebs and thus are not penalised so heavily.

      Yeah, but that’s what being a celeb is about and it certainly comes with its costs. Coffee should’ve known better than to have done something like this in a public restroom. Maybe she thought she isn’t well-known enough to be followed by reporters?

    • moncheri replied:

      I agree. From the clip, she even stated she didn’t want to do it in a public restroom. She had the sense to say that, but it’s due to the guy’s insistence which is why she allowed it to happen. I mean, when people are in the moment, they get lapses in judgment. And even Coffee knows she’s just a kelefeh so she really didn’t think reporters would follow her.

      Even though she’s not popular and she mostly stars as a bimbo in dramas/movies, she doesn’t deserve this relentless hounding. She’s already lost her job so the least people can do is give her her space and leave her alone. (Though it’s possible that if paps continuously follow her, it’ll create more publicity for her and help her find other jobs?).

    This is sad but I wonder if she thought she would get caught? I never knew who she was before this incident. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise for her because everyone now knows her and leaving TVB may be a start to something new and better. Wish her the best and hope that she learned from this experience.

      LMFAO Virginia Lok would have a heart attack and then wake back up to clear up the situation. Maybe they didn’t want to do it in a room cause they done it in a room too many times. Maybe they wanted to do it in public like a public bathroom or a car. But the bathroom was more safe.

    Also. everyone is giving Coffee a hard time but what about the paps. They had no business following her to the bathroom to get a story, regardless of what she was doing in there. That is beyond low, even by their standards. Whoever did this, they need to be called out for their disgusting actions.

    In my opinion, I think she’ll benefit more from being sacked by TVB. It’s not like she will have any more attractive job opportunities left at TVB so may as well try her career elsewhere than wasting another 6 years of cruising or being ‘frozen’. It’s quite sad that even after the scandal hardly anyone noticed she was actually in the currently aired series The Ultimate Addiction.

    Most of you feel sorry for Coffee. I, on the other hand, feel that she wants to be fired by TVB. Didn’t she already hint to the media to ask TVB to end her contract as soon as possible and not waste her time (reporters said that to Ms. Lok on her birthday)?

    She got her fame that she has never had in TVB (at least some of you knew her after this scandal), and she didn’t bother to contact TVB (to explain, defend, and save her career) immediately after the incident. Have you ever thought that all of this is a set-up? That’s why the whole restroom video from beginning to end was recorded.

    Now, some movie directors or rich men may contact her after her immediate fame. Why not since she is sexy hot?

    Of course tvb dont really have to terminate her. Firstly of course they dont want to have anything to do with this girl anymore. But just imagine if this case is Liza Wang, Eric Tsang just to name a few veterans for example, do you think TVB will try to bail her? It’s more of whether TVB feels you’re useful to them or not…. Too bad, she’s not famous that’s why no harm terminating her than trying to rescue her.
