Molly-Mae Hague labelled ‘Margaret Thatcher with fake tan’ amid backlash for ‘tone deaf’ comments

Molly-Mae Hague’s appearance on a podcast angered some fans of the fashion influencer.

The 22-year-old Love Island star made some controversial comments about social mobility that many people have criticized ever since.

Molly-Mae spoke to Dragon’s Den businessman Steven Bartlett on her podcast The Diary of a CEO in December last year.

A clip from the interview went viral on Thursday and, in the segment, Molly-Mae said, “‘You’ve been given a life and it’s up to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.”

Molly-Mae was speaking on the podcast as the creative director of retail company PrettyLittleThing. The deal reportedly earned the star a seven-figure deal when the deal was announced last August.

During the episode, the creative director continued: “When I’ve talked about it in the past I have been a little beaten up, with people saying” it’s easy for you to say because you didn’t grow up in poverty, so for you to sit there and say that we all have the same 24 hours in a day is incorrect. “But technically, what I’m saying is correct. We do.”

The reality star, who spent New Years in New York with her 22-year-old boyfriend Tommy Fury, added: “I understand we all have different backgrounds and have grown up in different ways and have different financial situations, but I think if you want something enough you can. get it. “

“It just depends on how far you want to get to where you want to be in the future. And I’ll go to whatever,” he explained.

The 2019 Love Island contestant then said: “I did my best to get to where I am now.”

His statement was shared on Twitter by @tsrbys under the comment: “If you are homeless, buy a house”.

The short video has been enjoyed nearly 30,000 times and sparked online fury and criticism as followers reacted to the interview.

While some agreed with her mindset, many slammed her for not understanding the privileged background she comes from over others who have to work twice as much.

One of the tweets that cited the viral clip said, “I should have put Molly-Mae who is Margaret Thatcher with a fake tan on my 2022 bingo card.”

One user tweeted: “She literally went on a TV dating show and got deals with brands, I’m not sure she ‘worked here’.”

Another reasoned: “His immaturity is showing. If you come from a place of privilege you should work very hard to educate yourself about the difficulties of others.”

Molly-Mae, who is a regular video blogger, has not yet publicly responded to the video which went viral on Thursday.
