Employer’s Friend Slams Netizen for Wrong Twitter Post about House Maid
Like any other job, workers should be treated well and fairly by employers.As in the case of housemaids, aside from they are treated good and provided with a comfortable place to sleep in, they should be given enough food as well.
Recently, a viral post on Twitter earned varied reactions from netizens because they thought the maid on the picture shared wasn’t allowed by her employers to eat while dining in a restaurant.
Apparently, the one who shared the photo on Twitter had mistakenly interpreted what he saw and stirred the emotions of the netizens that made them angry.
A certain Twitter user @v_vivekkk posted:
“I absolutely hate people doing this. You bring your helper out to the restaurant and you don’t give her food. She sits there watching you eat. Where is your heart? Just because she is a maid, she can’t eat at the same table?”
But just as social media reaches millions of people in a flash, the matter reaches the knowledge of one of the friends of the employers. She then clarified the issue and said there was no truth on the said Twitter post and slammed @v_vivekkk for his false accusations.
The friend wrote :
“Last night my friend Lin called me, sounding distraught. She said someone had posted on Twitter, a picture of her, her parents and Melissa (not her real name) who works as a domestic worker with Lin.
The woman added that she felt horrified because she knew Lin’s family for almost 20 years and had known them for being responsible employers, exactly the opposite of how they were somehow “humiliated” by a wrong post of a netizen who don’t know the real story behind the photo which was shared on Twitter.
She clarified, “Both Lin and Melissa had already eaten. Melissa did not want to eat again (yes, she was asked), while Lin ate some of the food her parents had ordered.”
As of this writing, the netizen already deleted the post on Twitter and issued an apology claiming he came up with such idea because it happens most of the time. Unfortunately, not always.
Moral of the story: Don’t judge people and don’t interpret things the way you see them. That will keep you away from trouble 🙂
