The organizer for James Reid’s book signing was caught unprepared for the massive and loyal following of the “On The Wings of Love” actor.

Some of James’ fans complained, saying some of them lined up early and have come from far away provinces just to have a book signed by James.

Most fans, however, said they are happy regardless of what happened at the book fair. Catching a glimpse of James Reid was enough to make their day, “worth it”, they said.

Even if the incident was not his fault, the Filipino-Australian actor-singer and songwriter, apologized for the incident on Twitter. He said, “Sorry for what happened at the MIBF it was totally unorganised. I hope no one got hurt.”

Nadine Lustre, James Reid’s girlfriend and love team partner, wasn’t included in the event. But it might have been better that way.
