Molly-Mae Hague’s latest grovelling apology has been slammed by fans as they say she has “made it worse”.
The reality star, 22, has been at the centre of criticism over the last week after comments about wealth inequality and poverty she made on The Diary Of A CEO podcast went viral.
Fans have even called for the PrettyLittleThing creative director to be sacked, but it seems she is keeping her role despite the backlash.
Molly-Mae’s representative released a statement last week after her fans picked up on the video, but the former Love Island star took to her Instagram on Monday and issued a statement.
She said: “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 I say or do.”
Saying sorry, she added: “I apologise to the people that have been affected negatively or misunderstand 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 experience.”
Millionaire Molly-Mae then concluded with: “Love to you all, always x”
However fans noticed a very controversial detail in her statement, with one person writing on Twitter : “So Molly-Mae’s apology is ‘sorry if you misunderstood me’?”
A second commented: “I see that instead of taking the time to reflect on why people were so angry about what was said, Molly-Mae decides to double down and tell us all we’ve misunderstood. This is not an apology. This is ‘I had to address this before normal service of flashing my wealth resumed’.”
“I think her apology is going to make things worse, something is very off about it,” a third added.
It was the first time Molly-Mae returned to social media after having four days off following the backlash from the podcast episode.
