- Sondo's Al Qattan's condemnation of Kuwait's new labor legislation has pulled an outrage from several public figures in Gulf countries
- Talal Al Rashed, a UAE-based Kuwait travel and food influencer, said that Al Qattan's remarks has sparked a 'healthy debate'
- Influencers also suggest that Sondos try not having a day off in a week
Different Gulf-based social media stars now speak up against Sondos Al Qattan's non-remorse on the rejection of domestic workers' 4 times a month day off from work and withholding of passports.
KAMI learned that commentaries from influential personalities came about when Sondos Al Qattan seems to have no remorse from all the backlash she's been receiving lately, especially online announcements of brands dropping her.
Bahraini Princess Royal Highness Sheikha Noora has already expressed her sentiments regarding the matter. "Let’s stand up for equality, justice and human dignity," she said in an interview with ITP Live.
“I just want a one-day break end of the week to get my energy back. I think my personal helper at home needs to have a day off. I really don’t understand how people think.” She also added, noting how difficult it is not to get one's energy back to work.
Enjy Kiwan, a UAE-based health and wellness influencer, also opined that she may disagree with Al Qattan's views but she later addressed “everyone has the right to their own opinion."
“I have help, and we are blessed in this part of the world to be able to have that and we owe so much to them, be it taking care of our children when we are at work, house duties, cooking and so much more,” she said in an interview with Arabian Business.
Talal Al Rashed, a UAE-based Kuwaiti travel and food blogger, said that the outrage turned into a "healthy debate." Al Rashed said that the debate is "is healthy, and it shows how people are different when it comes to human rights and labour laws, and how some need some enlightenment."
The Emirati influencer also suggested to Sondos that she try being in a full-time service company or even in her own house for a year and see the conditions of not having any day off from work.
In an earlier report by KAMI, the Kuwaiti social media star has refused to detract her remarks against Filipina domestic workers, which infuriated militant OFW groups that now launched campaigns against Sondos Al Qattan.
