A video capturing a former expat who lived in Saudi Arabi attacking the kingdom and labeling it “racist” and “discriminatory” sparked outrage on social media late on Wednesday.

The footage, which was posted on Snapchat under the username “Sosita”, is said to have been filmed by a Palestinian woman who was brought up in the country.

In it, she makes several hateful statements, accusing the kingdom of mistreating expats, discriminating against them and abusing them.

She also condemns the country for not doing more to financially aid Palestine and Syria.

“All the money you have is spent on luxury and useless matters,” she said.

“I won’t talk about people in general because I know that their government is the reason why they’re so racist,” she added.

The woman also hit back at those telling her she owes the Gulf country loyalty because she lived there for a period of her life.

“To them I say, I went to school, dressed and lived well because my father worked hard to make a living for us,” she explained.

The woman’s statements didn’t only target Saudi Arabia. In the video, she also went on to attack other Gulf countries, including Kuwait and the UAE.

She also said she was praying for the good people who live in these countries because according to her “they have angered God”.

The video has gone completely viral on social media

The statements seen in the video have sparked an intense online response after they were uploaded on Twitter.

Thousands of Saudis and expats living in the Gulf have since reacted to the woman’s rant with anger and many are now shutting her down.

Others also criticized those attacking Palestinians in response to the video reminding them that the woman who appeared in the footage only represents herself.

While some couldn’t believe it was trending, some thought there was some truth to the woman’s words. “She spoke some truth. She said what many expatriates in the Gulf feel especially at times of discrimination. Being an expatriate is bittersweet. At times, it’s a blessing. Other times, not so much. For many, it’s a result of having no country to call home. ”
