Maria B and her husband ‘s video statement defending letting corona positive cook flee was not received well by the majority of Pakistanis.
A pandemic does not discriminate between race or class since everyone is at equal risk
Maria B’s husband Tahir Saeed was released on bail hours after taken into custody for not informing the authorities that his cook had contracted coronavirus and sent him back to his home putting thousands of lives at stake!
After the now-infamous viral video, featuring fashion designer Maria B pleading for justice as her husband was arrested on letting their COVID-19 positive servant flee, the couple took to social media to share an an ‘official statement’.
Though the statement was aimed at clearing the air about Maria B’s husband’s release and arrest amid coronavirus controversy, however, the Pakistani’s are not happy at all about the overall scenario they have put forward.
Many took to social media responding to Maria B’s statement and definitely they were irked by their irresponsible behaviour from the start.

Arrest #MariaB and her husband for endangering the lives of many destitute people. @PakPMO should issue a statement on Maria’s claim she made, during a 19 mins long lecture, that @ImranKhanPTI and the army officials intervened and got her husband released. #CoronaAlert pic.twitter.com/4j34Ptddcw

Next time you buy anything from this cruel #MariaB just remember her cook to whom these people kick out while he was infected. Such a shame these people are. I urge everybody to boycott her brand #MariaB

Govt should remove the discriminatory system between two classes and arrest the offender.
The isn't only negligence but a crime to sent her cook to his village while knowing that he's #COVID19 positive .#MariaB pic.twitter.com/Haqy5hQpZh
