Tiling over acrylic wet walling

My shower acrylic wet wall lining has gone yellow. The importer says it's because the sun has discolored it. It was professionally installed with wet grade gin behind. Can I tile over the acrylic. My plumber says yes but the tile shop says no. Any advice please.

Like a flimsy acrylic shower wall panel?

Absolutely not, you need a solid base to install tile!

It was professionally installed with wet grade gin behind.
What the heck is "wet grade gin"?

People who make money by selling you tile say it won't work, which means they can't make money by selling you tile. That should give you the answer.
