Molly-Mae has released a statement apologising for her ‘tone deaf’ podcast comments
‘I apologise to the people that misunderstood the meaning of what I said’
Molly-Mae has issued an apology on Instagram for the comments she made during a podcast. Over the last few days the 22-year-old influencer and Love Island star has been facing backlash for saying “if you want something hard enough, you can achieve it” and that everyone has “the same 24-hours in a day”. These comments have been branded as “tone deaf” and “privileged” however in her apology, Molly-Mae says they were never said with “ill intent”.
Her apology comes just after her dad defended what she said in an Instagram post comment section and Molly-Mae issued her original apology for her podcast comments through her representatives. But before she makes her comeback to social media, here’s her latest apology in full:
In her Instagram 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 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.”
