A housemaid who was seen sitting on the floor beside the dining table of politician Wan Yubamrung in a shopping mall restaurant has defended her boss, saying she simply likes to sit that way.

The woman, who identified herself as Samai, said in a video clip posted on Wan’s Facebook wall that she was happy during the visit to the mall.

Her clip was posted a day after a Facebook user posted her photo sitting on the ground beside Wan’s family dining table and wrote: “OMG! Thailand! They took a housemaid for a visit to carry shopping bags and care for their children. When they got tired, they had food and let the maid sit like this. It’s not OK, is it? Why didn’t they let her join the table?”

The post drew a lot of criticisms against Wan, prompting him to file a defamation lawsuit against the Facebook user.

In her clip, Samai said: “Hi, I am Samai. Yesterday, I went out with the boss. The boss let met eat until I became full. I stood to wait for my boss until I felt tired in my legs, so I sat down.

“Don’t worry. I was full and happy. I sat on the floor because I always sit like this. I don’t like to sit on a chair.”
