Love Island’s Molly Mae Hague has targeted the Wikipedia page after being tagged ‘Margaret Thatcher with a fake tan’


Molly-Mae Hague has been dubbed ‘Margaret Thatcher with a fake tan’ by angry fans following controversial comments about wealth inequality.

The social media influencer is facing backlash on Twitter for saying “if you want something bad enough, you can achieve it”, after snippets of a podcast appearance have gone viral.

In the “Diary of a CEO” podcast, Molly-Mae says, “You are given a life and it’s up to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.

“When I’ve talked about it in the past, I’ve been criticized a bit, with people saying ‘it’s easy for you to say that because you didn’t grow up in poverty, so for you to to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is wrong.’ But, technically, what I’m saying is correct. We’re doing it.”

She added: “I understand we all come from different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and have different financial situations, but I think if you want something good enough you can achieve it.”

The comments angered many on Twitter, with some people even targeting his Wikipedia biography with cruel mockery.

Her Wikipedia page has been amended to read: “Molly-Mae Thatcher (born 26 May 1999) is an English social media influencer.

“She is best known for releasing her sn*tch on the fifth series of Love Island and for working harder than anyone less successful than her.”

The rest of the Wikipedia page dubbed her “Thatcher”.

Her comments have drawn continued criticism of global influencer culture, with many fans criticizing Molly-Mae’s claim to “work her ass off” being completely out of touch.

One person on Twitter said: “You weren’t born into poverty, you were lucky enough to have financial support growing up and then lucky enough to be cast on a national TV show. Leg after leg.”

Thatcher’s comments also came from Twitter, with one user posting: “I should have put Molly-Mae being Margaret Thatcher with a fake tan on my 2022 bingo card.”

A third person wrote: ‘A middle-class person who has made a career out of being pretty, posing in the streets in cream-colored tracksuits and the underpaid job of factory workers thinks she knows if you “work harder”, you will overcome poverty and struggle. Please stop making stupid people famous, I beg of you.

Molly-Mae appeared on Love Island in 2019 and finished second with her boyfriend, Tommy Fury.

She has since taken on the role of Creative Director for fast fashion brand, Pretty Little Thing.
