The recent OFW rescue conducted in Kuwait by the Department of Foreign Affairs has been a hot issue lately. The videos first hit social media about two weeks ago, showing response teams from the Philippine Embassy in Kuwait rescuing OFWs and bringing them to waiting vehicles, which brought them to the embassy for shelter.

The rescue, which was led by Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait Renato Villa, has since been denounced by the Gulf nation, declaring Villa persona non grata and giving him one week to vacate his position. Days after, President Rodrigo Duterte urged the 260,000 OFWs in Kuwait to come home.

The hotly-debated issue did not escape the eye of comedian Ethel Booba. She, too, expressed concern on the recent goings-on in the news, as she did not hesitate to give a piece of her mind about the rescue, taking to her Twitter page yesterday, May 2. Being her comical self, she questioned why the Department of Foreign Affairs had to take videos of the rescue, at the same time poking fun at her own blunders in the past with self-deprecating humor.

“Bakit kailangan videohan at iupload sa FB yang pagrescue sa mga OFW sa Kuwait?” started Ethel Booba. “Di lahat ng bagay dapat ipost gaya noong nangyare sa aking video scandal. Oo trending at maraming views pero nagdulot lang ng kahihiyan. Charot!

(Why the need to video and upload in FB the rescue of OFWs in Kuwait? Not all things have to be posted online, like what happened when I had my video scandal. Yes, it trended and got so many views but it only brought shame. Charot!)

Booba and former boyfriend Alex Crisano were the subject of a sex video that circulated in 2005.

The viral rescue videos prompted Kuwait citizens to protest in front of the Philippine Embassy. It was also reported that the rescue was deemed “inappropriate” and a “threat to Kuwait’s sovereignty.” JB
