After relentless complaining from Twitter and the media, Love Island star and Thatcherite girl boss Molly-Mae Hague has released another statement clarifying her recent comments on hard work and aspiration. Looks like her team’s efforts to put this story to bed on Friday didn’t quite work…
On Instagram this afternoon, Hague put out something of an apology:
“I wanted to come back online today as normal but I feel like before I do I just wanted to say this. When I say or post anything online, it is never with malice or ill intent. I completely appreciate that things can affect different people in different ways, however I just want to stress that I would never intend to hurt or upset anyone by anything that I say or do.
“I apologise to the people that have been affected negatively or misunderstood the meaning of what I said in the podcast, the intentions of the podcast were only ever to tell my story and inspire from my own experience.”
Apologising to those who ‘misunderstood the meaning’ of what she said is perfect politician-speak while not backing down from her original beliefs. This lady is still not for turning…
Love Island star and Thatcherite girl boss Molly-Mae Hague has, correctly, stuck to her guns following mass online lefty criticism about her comments on hard work and aspiration. A statement put out by her team this afternoon declares “if you want something enough you can work hard to achieve it is how she keeps determined”:
“Molly did a podcast interview in December about her own rise to success. If you listen to the full conversation and interview Molly was asked about how the nature of her potential grows and how she believes in herself. This part of the interview was discussing time efficiency relating to success.
Molly refers to a quote which says “We all have the same 24 hours in a day as Beyonce”. She was discussing her own experience and how she can resonate with this specific quote.
Her opinion on if you want something enough you can work hard to achieve it is how she keeps determined with her own work to achieve more in her own life. Molly is not commenting on anyone else’s life or personal situation she can only speak of her own experience.”
Molly-Mae shows precisely how to deal with online moaning: don’t back down. She’s not for turning…
Try explaining this headline to somebody 24 hours ago. On LBC this morning small business minister Paul Scully was asked by Nick Ferrari about the Molly Mae libertarianism controversy that Guido reported on yesterday afternoon. In classic ministerial question spinning, Scully managed to turn the issue into espousing the need for ‘levelling up’, while also agreeing with the bikini-clad star that “an aspirational approach to life is no bad thing”. Odds on Molly making an appearance at this year Tory Party conference?
Twitter-obsessed co-conspirators may have noticed the name “Molly-Mae Hague” trending today, as the former Love Island winner gets slammed by left-wing whingers for her comments on aspiration and hard work. Speaking on a podcast the Pretty Little Things creative director espoused:
“I just think you’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.”
“When I’ve spoken in the past I’ve been slammed a little bit, with people saying, ‘It’s easy for you to say that, you’ve not grown up in poverty, you’ve not grown up with major money struggles. So for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.”
Naturally Molle Mae’s belief that individuals are responsible for their own lot in life, and that hard work can improve one’s life, have outraged the left, branding her “gross” and “tone deaf” and even “a little mini-Thatcher girl boss”:
Guido thinks 2022 could actually be the year of the “Thatcher Girl Boss” …
