Kuwaiti Social Media Star Sondos Alqattan Dropped by Cosmetics Brand After Disrespecting OFWs

The Kuwaiit social media star Sondos Alqattan made headlines anew on social media not because of her popular criticisms against Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Kuwait but because of the latest development on her carrer as she was dropped by the cosmetic brand sponsoring her on social media.


Sondos Alqattan ignited a backlash on social media after she criticized a law in Kuwait allowing domestic workers to have a one day off and allowing them to hold their passports under their care and not with their employers.


Due to the popularity of the issue and the backlash received by the Kuwaiti social media start, the cosmetic brands supporting her sever ties with the social media star.

Sondos Alqattan is a make-up artist who became popular on social media because of her uploaded video tutorials on various social media sites.

The popular Kuwaiti social media star made headlines after she was interviewed in Arabic which can be translated into "How can you have a servant at home who has her passport with her?" She asked indignantly in a video posted on Instagram to her 2.3 million followers.



Alqattan also added further that "She will have a day off a week, and work six days a week. And of course you won't know happens on these days, while her passport is with her." she said.

The statement of Sondos Alqattan drew flaks online as social media users decried her statement as they accused Alqattan of being a racist, and demanded cosmetic brands to cut their ties with her.
