Many netizens were enraged when Kuwaiti social media star Sondos Al Qattan made comments about Filipino domestic workers, and Emirati vlogger Khalid Al Ameri was one who decided to weigh in on the issue.

In a video posted by Al Ameri on his Facebook page, he defended Filipino domestic workers by responding to Al Qattan’s complaints.

“How would you feel if you worked for someone that not only did not give you the day off but disagree with the very ideology that you deserve a day off?” Al Ameri said in his video.

He added that almost every job in the world are granted days off so that employees can rest, and domestic workers should not be of any difference.

Al Ameri also slammed the Kuwaiti internet celebrity’s rant about Filipino workers keeping their passports.

Al Ameri ended his video by thanking every domestic worker for providing help in their daily lives and for letting themselves be a part of their family.

Al Qattan, who has over 2.3 million followers on Instagram, previously ranted on social media and questioned the Kuwaiti government’s reforms on the kafala system which now allows Filipino domestic workers to have the right to days off and possession of their own passports.

The Kuwaiti beauty blogger said that the reform was “pathetic”, adding that she doesn’t want to hire Filipino domestic workers anymore.

Al Qattan sparked online uproar with many netizens accusing her of “promoting slavery”.
