Kuwaiti social media celebrity and make-up artist Sondos Al Qattan refuses to apologize for what she said about Filipino domestic workers despite being slammed on social media, GMA News reported.
“All I said was that the employer was entitled to keep the servant’s passport, and that many Kuwaitis and Gulf nationals agreed with me,” Al Qattan said.
Al Qattan had sparked outrage for saying that Filipino domestic workers should not be given a day off and that employers should be the ones to hold on to their passports.
“The servant lives in the house just like the owners, she eats the same food, sleeps, rests and goes out shopping, this is a natural right. She is not like a waiter who works fixed hours; we give her weekly leave,” she said.
A Philippine NGO has called on the Philippine government to ban Al-Qattan permanently from hiring Filipino domestic workers. The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration said that it will not allow employers to hire domestic workers if they do not comply with the laws intended to protect the migrant workers.
In May, the Philippines and Kuwait signed the Agreement on the Employment of Domestic Workers. It aims to ensure the protection of Filipino domestic workers in the country. Under the agreement, employers are not allowed to keep their domestic workers’ passports and other travel and work documents.

Masyado p ciang old passion terms of this topic…but she looks modern the way she’s smile and dress up…so she deserves a ban for not letting her to take a Filipino servant
Yes,they agreed with u…but its already signed the agreement…so u still dont have the power…and u will remain a basher….so stay put,u cannot do anything but to bark like a stupid dog in the street….????????
By law, a passport is a property of an issuing country; and the authorized person to keep in posession is only the bearer and not anybody else…
Who’s that Kuwaitis and gulf nationals? Show it to us.. Well i think nobody supports you even your fellow Kuwaiti..
Slavery is not allowed in civilized ang educated world. Unless one is uncivilized with low literacy
The company who hire her..is this your model ?? ignorant and racist…
Shame on you wonan!!!You dont know what your talking about,just pretend your self your the maid can you imagine what the feeling is???? Inshallah it will happen to you or if not you realized it now…So next time be careful in every words you said.
This celebrity I think is just forced by their gov’t to wear hijab or veil! She is not a true Muslim…for if she is she won’t make this kind of statement! This kind of person should be beheaded and torn into pieces!
we are not servants you bitch!!! we are helpers and we are human beings. even though you are paying our services it does’nt mean that you own us. nobody has right to hold our documents because that is our personal belongings.
She may have 2.3 million IG followers but she’s not aware that Philippines as “the social networking capital of the world”. So, if Filipinos will work hand in hand and show her what Filipinos can do. Ban the products or brands that still supported her as their endorser.
She’s rich like elephant and we are poor like ants but we are resilient to fight back all atrocities.
Well maybe shes like the one ur saying
maybe the one who agreed to u is not have a maid
you saying you allow them to rest but not have day offs? i wonder what kind of rest does this bitch give them if she can’t even let go of a one day off
