Sondos Alqattan posted a video online slamming the new law that provides better working conditions for Filipino workers.

“How can you have a servant at home who keeps their own passport with them? What’s worse is they have one day off every week,” she said as translated by the Guardian. “If they run away and go back to their country, who will refund me? Honestly, I disagree with this law. I don’t want a Filipino maid any more,” she added about the new law implemented in May this year. She later deleted the video from Instagram.

The video quickly spread across social media platforms. Many asked beauty brands to stop endorsing her or have any forms of ties with her. Filipino expat groups and workers’ associations have demanded an apology from the star, who has over 2 million followers on Instagram.

She later put up a statement on Instagram clarifying her reasons.

As people slammed her for not apologizing, she also claimed that her critics targeted her for wearing hijab.
