Reports claimed that Aimee was very upset last Wednesday after being sexually harassed by fellow actors during a scene. In the scene, Aimee was surrounded by a group of men who teased and physically molested her. Allegedly, several of these local male extras saw this as an opportunity and laid hands on Aimee repeatedly.

"I'm fine!" said Aimee Chan. "Nothing like that happened. It's just a matter of the camera angles. We all had a pleasant collaboration and it was very harmonious."
