Molly-Mae Hague hit by backlash over writing autobiography at age 22
Molly-Mae Hague has faced backlash after publishing an autobiography aged just 22.
The blonde beauty started out as an influencer before rising to fame on the hit ITV dating show Love Island, where she met boyfriend Tommy Fury, also 22, and went on to gain 6.2million subscribers Instagram.
She’s also taken on the role of creative director of Pretty Little Thing, owns her own fake tan business, and regularly shares updates on her YouTube channel.
Now, taking to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, February 10, the reality star has revealed she’s written a book about her life, which is available for pre-order.

The book traces the “moments, relationships and life lessons” that Molly-Mae dealt with and follows “the teenager who takes a job at Boots while building her dreams at fashion school, her journey to Love Island and how she’s facing stardom today,” according to the Penguin website.
Despite her excitement over the news, many couldn’t help but blame her after recalling her recent “deaf” interview with Steven Bartlett on his podcast The Diary of a CEO, where she said: “When I I’ve talked about this 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 poor, so for you to sit there and to say that we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.’
“But technically what I’m saying is correct. We do.”
Many people took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Molly-Mae’s new book as one person wrote: ‘Don’t be mad that Molly Mae wrote a book, we all have the same 26 letters in the book. alphabet, use them wisely x”.
Another shared: “Not Molly Mae writing a book called ‘Becoming Molly-Mae’ when she went to love island and then got rich off the backs of the poor. Hope she l wrote in 24 hours.”
While a third shared her doubts that she was even the one who wrote the book adding: ‘I can tell you now *categorically* that Molly Mae did not write this book’.
However, not everyone was quick to judge the star when one person came to her rescue and said: “People are criticizing Molly Mae again like you wouldn’t take this opportunity to write a book. Carry on running your fingers through Twitter while she does this [money emoji]”.
While a second replied, “Not the people who continually tear Molly Mae apart. Give the girl a break if you don’t want to read her book… THEN DON’T it’s not that hard,” with a face emoji the ace.
