Molly-Mae podcast

Molly-Mae has defended her comments she made on the podcast despite Twitter backlash

‘Molly is not commenting on anyone else’s life or personal situation’

Molly-Mae has been facing backlash on Twitter for her comments which she made in a recent podcast. During her appearance on The Diary Of A CEO podcast in December, she shared her view that “if you want something enough, you can achieve it” and that everyone has “the same 24 hours in a day” which has not gone down well at all on Twitter.

She has since been branded as “tone-deaf”, “privileged” and even compared to Margaret Thatcher with a tan. Also as a result of her backlash, her Wikipedia page has been altered including her name briefly being changed to “Molly-Mae Thatcher”. However she has since released a statement via her representatives which was shared with Metro earlier today.

According to her reps, Molly-Mae allegedly acknowledges “everyone is from different backgrounds” and that her comments on the podcast were about making the most of your time in relation to success as well as how determined she is to succeed in her own life.

The statement says: “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.”

They continue to say on Molly-Mae’s behalf that she acknowledges everyone is raised in different ways. They say: “If you listen to this interview you can see the whole conversation was about her own personal circumstances, how she has grown up and this small clip in the conversation was talking about a quote that inspires her. Social media users have shared a short snippet from this interview with words such as ‘if you are homeless buy a house’ and ‘if you are poor be poor’ these are absolutely not Molly’s words, these are not Molly’s thoughts and this isn’t at all the meaning or thought behind that conversation.”
