- Hinamak umano ng Adidas store manager ang mga Pinoy OFWs sa Kuwait
- Unang nakapila ang mga Pinoy OFWs para makabili ng pinakabagong Adidas Yeezy shoes
- Nang dumating ang store manager, pinalipat sila sa huli ng linya dahil uunahin daw dapat ang mga Kuwaiti, na naging sanhi pa na sila'y pagtawanan
Inalipusta ang anim na Pinoy OFW na nakapila sa isang Adidas outlet doon sa isnag mall sa Kuwait.
Nalaman ng KAMI na nakapila na ang mga Pinoy nang maaga pa sa shop.
May papel na ginamit kung saan nakalista ang mga pangalan ng mga bibili at ang mga sizes nila.
Nang bandang 8:30am na, dumating ang isang Adidas representative at binuksan ang store.
Sabay na inannounce na ang mga Kuwaiti daw ay uunahin o ipaprioritize.
Nang magtanong ang mga Pilipino paano sila, pakutyang sinabi ng manager na, "Filipino want to buy shoes?"
Dahil dito, pinagtawanan daw ang mga Pinoy, habang pumasok na ang mga Kuwaiti sa store.
Isang Arab woman ang pumrotesta at sinabihan na racism at unfair yung ginawa ng manager sa mga Pinoy.
Sa blog na 248am.com, nakadetalye ang sinabi ng isang witness sa insidente.
Sabi niya, "The Filipino group left and some guys just kept mocking them. An overwhelming majority of the Kuwaiti crowd joined in on the mocking. They waited for 2.5 hours to be disgraced like that."
Below is the entire post from 248am.com:
I wanted to let you know about this incident that took place at the Adidas outlet this morning.
So today was the launch of this limited edition Yeezy and I was at Hamra mall branch. They said it’ll be first come first serve. There were about 6 Philippine Nationals lined up at like 6am, they were the first ones there. A paper was passed down the line with the name and preferred sizes of people and it seemed completely civilized.
Then at 830am when the doors were supposed to open, a Kuwaiti Adidas representative announced in Arabic that Kuwaitis get priority. And a bunch of Kuwaiti guys rushed in front of the Filipinos and it was utter chaos. Then when one of the Filipino men spoke up and asked “what about us?” The Adidas rep was like “Filipino want to buy shoes?” And everyone started laughing.
And then a bunch of Kuwaiti guys proceeded to walk inside the store.
A woman (Arab) then started shouting at the Adidas representative and was saying that this is straight up racism and unfair. She was ignored. The Filipino group left and some guys just kept mocking them. An overwhelming majority of the Kuwaiti crowd joined in on the mocking. They waited for 2.5 hours to be disgraced like that.
