MOLLY-MAE became famous on Love Island and has been a millionaire ever since thanks to her lucrative deal with Pretty Little Things.
But now the 22-year-old influencer is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, and it has cost her dearly in social media followers.
How many followers has Molly-Mae Hague lost?
In January 2022, a podcast Molly-Mae made in early December 2021 reappeared and caused outrage among her followers.

As of January 11, 2021, Molly-Mae has now lost over 40,000 Instagram followers.
Her following is just over 6 million.

She said, “You have been given a life and it is 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 slammed a bit because people said, ‘It’s easy for you to say this because you didn’t grow up in poverty, so you sit there and we all say the same thing Having 24 hours a day is not correct. ‘
“But technically what I’m saying is correct. We do.”
There was a huge backlash to this story, and fans called it “deaf”.
In a statement about her, Molly-Mae responded to the backlash, saying, “Molly conducted a podcast interview in December about her own advancement to success.
“If you listen to the entire conversation and interview, Molly was asked how her potential is growing and how she believes in herself.
“This part of the interview was about time efficiency in relation to success.”
