Molly-Mae Hague’s shock over working 12-hour shift in resurfaced clip

·5-min read

Molly-Mae Hague was left visibly shocked when she found out she was working a 12-hour shift at a PrettyLittleThing warehouse in a resurfaced video.

The video emerged after the former Love Island runner-up, 22, was in hot water for comments she made on wealth and priviledge in a new podcast where she claimed “we all have the same 24 hours of the day” regardless of background.

In a statement, she has since responded to the backlash in a statement saying “her comments here are in reference to timing, hard work and determination in her own life”.

Now social media has seen a video of the star resurface showing the influencer jokingly horrified about working 12 hours where she jested she would be “on the floor” by 1am working those gruelling hours.

In the video, she said: “I’m on the 2-10, but it’s actually quarter to one so I’m doing the one til one, oh it’s 12 hours...

“I’ll be on the floor like this by one am, Jesus.”

The video divided social media with some people criticising her following her comments about hard work while others were quick to defend the star.

Responding with humour, one person wrote: “If you ever feel like your 12 hour shift is getting you down, just remember Molly Mae works harder than you!”

Others added: “#mollymae is willing to go to any lengths, apart from working a 12 hour shift @OfficialPLT.”

“Molly Mae when she sees someone taking a 5 minute break during their 12 hour shift.”

“If molly mae thinks everyone has the exact same 24 hours & opportunities then I would LOVE to see her do a 12 hour shift for £3.50 an hour at one of the factories that make clothes for the brand she’s a ‘creative director’ of and see what she makes of that.”

However, other more loyal fans leaped to her defence in the wake of the video.

Among the sea of comments, one wrote: “Why are you bashing her? honestly what do you get from it. all of our experiences are different.”

Others wrote: “Ahhhh I see, she’s not allowed to say anything without being scrutinised now, how boring.”

“Least she’s out there getting it done. No shame in that.”

“Have we not learnt our lesson when it comes to slating love island contestants on the internet.”

It comes after the PrettyLittleThing businesswoman got candid about how she managed to reach her height of success.

“You’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it,” she told the Diary of a CEO podcast. “You can literally go in any direction.

“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, you’ve not grown in poverty, you’ve not grown up with major money struggles, so for you to sit there and say that we all have the same 24 hours in a day, it’s not correct.

“And I’m like, but technically what I’m saying is correct. We do. So I understand that we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations, but I do think if you want something enough, you can achieve it.”

She added: “It just depends to what lengths you want to go to get where you want to be in the future.

“And I’ll go to any lengths. I’ve worked my absolute a*** off to get where I am now.”

Since then, Ms Hague has responded to the backlash she has received over the interview snippet.

A statement has been released on her behalf by her representatives: “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.

“She acknowledges that everyone is raised in different ways and from different backgrounds but her comments here are in reference to timing, hard work and determination in her own life. 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”.”
