- Social media beauty brand endorser Sondos Al-Qattan released a statement in English and Arabic explaining her side regarding her non-discrimination of previous and current employees
- The social media made a negative avalanche of responses due to her pronouncements against the new domestic labor regulation signed by Kuwait and the Philippines May 11
- Al-Qattan stated her 'own' demarcation line between working in a household and working for a business or enterprise
Sondos Al-Qattan made clarifications amid all the social media outcry, especially of Filipinas who had bad employment experiences in the Middle East, particularly in Kuwait.
KAMI knew about her recent posting a few hours ago when it immediately became viral, although locked from commenting from her followers and other users on Instagram.
In an earlier report by KAMI, the Kuwaiti social media influencer, vlogger, and beauty guru, raised her complaints regarding the May 11th domestic regulation in Kuwait signed by the Philippines and the former.
The domestic regulation seeks to protect labor and household-related abuses following the death of a Filipina in Kuwait, who was found frozen inside a freezer, and other diplomatic issues brought up by domestic violence and abuse.
In her recently released statement, she still strongly argued that there is a clear difference between working for a business or an office with fixed hours and working in a household. Al-Qattan also reiterated that she had never been involved in any violence against her domestic helpers, in the previous and present.
She also buttressed that her online plea was due to a huge consensus among her and other employers in protecting their interests as they all disagree to the provision stating helpers' right to safe-keep their passports.
Sondos also invited people who have judged her to come and meet her up close so they'd be able to know who she truly is and how she treats her employees.
Alqattan has 2.1 million followers on Instagram, where she has disabled the comments section due to the backlash of her comments against OFWs. She describes herself as a makeup artist and a beauty lover in her IG page.
