Popular beauty blogger Sondos Alqattan (Sondos Alqattan) from Kuwait alienated the audience, criticizing new laws that improve conditions for workers from the Philippines. Readers and human rights activists have accused it of supporting slavery, writes The Guardian.
Under the new law, Filipino workers can take one day off per week and to have their own passport. Previously, an identity document is often withdrawn by the employer.
Alkattan expressed the view that letting go of housekeeping four times in a month with the passport in the hands of dangerous and costly for the employer.
“Your servants can have a passport? If they escape and return to their country, who will return me money? I don’t want to keep Filipino maids,” said Alkattan. Video girl is available on YouTube.
Initially, the blogger posted a video to Instagram, but after a wave of angry comments and accusations that Alkattan does not consider the rights of the people, she deleted the post. Saying girls criticized human rights activists. In particular, the advocacy group Migrante International said that the girl he imagines himself a slave owner, and accused her backward views. After that, the social media launched the hashtag #StopSlavery (“Stop slavery”) which the opponents Alkattan accompany their posts.
