How many followers has Molly-Mae Hague lost?

She said: “You’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. 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 because you’ve not grown up in poverty, so for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.’
“But, technically, what I’m saying is correct. We do.”
There was a huge backlash to this story, with fans calling her “tone deaf”.
In a statement via her Molly-Mae responded to the backlash, saying: “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.”
