Kuwaiti social media star Sondos Al Qattan has returned to social media after a quick hiatus. She recently posted a photo of her thanking her 2.4 million followers for supporting her amid backslash on her controversial remark against Filipino domestic helpers.

Al Qattan found herself in hot water after questioning 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.

Since then, several beauty and cosmetic brands that used to be associated with, such as MAC Cosmetics, Phyto, Shiseido, Max Factor Arabia, Chelsea Beautique, and M. Micallef, have severed ties with her after the backlash she has received.

However, she has also defended her side by telling those who criticize her to not “judge a person without full understanding of the situation.”

She also said that the attacks thrown to her are “attacks on Islam, the Hijab and Kuwait”.
