With more than 700,000 views and being shared 21,000 times, a video of a Filipina domestic helper being verbally abused by a local woman in Hong Kong had gone viral on social media. The woman then was slammed on Facebook as most netizens believed what she did was inappropriate,
In the video, the domestic helper was in a park with a child she is caring for in a stroller while walking her 2 dogs. Suddenly, the woman started yelling at her as she claimed the dogs were so noisy for continuously barking and even accused one of the dogs to be biting her dog.
You should shut the fuck up! You are just a helper, OK? the woman shouts.Why you bring the baby together with the dog!
Shortly, the child started to cry for being somehow afraid with her loud voice.
Seemed like she couldn’t ‘hold her horses’, the woman turned to the helper and demanded that she speak to her employer. The helper then had remained calm.
Ask your boss come here I tell him the rules.
Or you give your number I call your boss, OK? Call your boss now! Ask him to come here now! I’m telling you, are wrong! [When you] take care of the baby you bring your two dogs, and your dogs… always keep barking, you should control your dog.
The helper tried to explain saying, “I am controlling them.” (referring to the dogs)
The woman replied :You are not because your dog is barking at my dog!
She also claimed that other people in the park were annoyed by the barking of the dogs. However, it appeared that she was the only one complaining.
Apparently, though it was never mentioned where specifically they are, it appeared that Tseung Kwan O Waterfront is a public park which does not prohibit dog owners to bring their pets to the place.
The woman continued lashing at the helper.
You actually should not be a helper, you know. If I’m a boss I would fire you. You have really bad attitude.
Worse, she even shouted at her saying :Go back to the Philippines.
The helper called her boss to tell him what happened. She then wrote his number and handed it to the woman who persistently demanded that she be able to talk to him.
“We are working! You call him!”
“He asked me to give you the number, OK?”
The helper left the park after the scene.
Though it was unknown how the conversation of the two employers went, many netizens firmly believe that the attitude of the woman was totally wrong and unbecoming.
Some of them also felt there is discrimination as the Filipina had been unjustly treated by the woman who believes she is far better than her because she was just a helper.
Meanwhile, many of the netizens were all praises to the Filipina for being able to accomplish many tasks at the same time like caring for a child while looking after the two dogs of her employer.
