Molly-Mae Hague is criticised ‘tone deaf’Comments background and privilege

Molly-Mae Hague is under fire for her behavior “tone deaf” comments on privilege, wealth and people’s background saying that “we all have the same 24 hours in a day”You will be successful.

The reality star, 22 years old, who rose to fame in 2019 on Love Island’s fifth series, discussed her success as an influential and creative director of PrettyLittleThing’s fashion brand on the podcast The Diary of a CEO.

“You’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction,”Steven Bartlett was the host.

“When I’ve spoken about that in the past I have been slammed a little bit, with people saying ‘it’s easy for you to say that because you’ve not grown up in poverty, so for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.’ But, technically, what I’m saying is correct. We do.”

Hague continued: “I understand we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I think if you want something enough you can achieve it. It just depends on what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be in the future.

“And I’ll go to any length,”She continued: “I’ve worked my absolute a**e off to get where I am now.”

Hague’s comments have sparked backlash on Twitter after this clip of the podcast aired, which was released on December 13th began to circulate online.

Many people noted that Hague failed both to acknowledge the benefits of her privilege and to grasp the realities of social inequalities.

While others pointed out Hague signed a six-figure deal in August to become the UK and EU’s creative director for PrettyLittleThing, which is owned by Boohoo, was accused of paying workers in a Leicester factory as little as £3.50 per hour.

A lack of safety regulations for Covid, with no social distancing or failure to provide PPE to staff during the pandemic were also claimed. An investigation by The Sunday Times uncovered.

Boohoo replied with ” In a statement “As a board, we are shocked and appalled by the recent allegations that have been made”They can be added to how they are “committed to doing everything in our power to rebuild the reputation of the textile manufacturing industry in Leicester.”

An independent review was launched into the retailer’s UK supply chain.

Many people pointed this factor out when criticising Hague’s comments on being able to achieve by putting the work in.
