Molly-Mae made the comments on Dragon’s Den investor Steven Bartlett’s podcast.
She said: “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.”
Although she acknowledged that “we all have different backgrounds and we’re all raised in different ways and we do have different financial situations,” she believes “if you want something enough you can achieve it.”
A section of the statement read: “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.”
The statement continued: “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.”
