We’re only three episodes into the fifth series of Love Island, the nation’s most-watched reality TV show, and tonight’s episode will see the arrival of yet another contestant in a bid to shake up the show!
Molly-Mae Hague, the 20-year-old social media influencer, was set to make a good first impression amongst islanders and viewers, with many of the guys repeatedly stating that ‘blondes’ are their type on paper and viewers eagerly awaiting Tommy’s reaction in light of all the preceding Lucie drama.
However the resurfacing of some old tweets has left a sour taste in the mouths of many fans as they question at what age is a person considered responsible for the impact of offensive words shared online.
Molly-Mae has been caught using both homophobic and racial slurs between the ages of 15 and 17, therefore a lot of time has passed allowing the blonde bombshell much time to educate herself on the misuse of language.
While one of of the posts has since been removed from the platform, it is important to remember than when posting on social media our words have an irretrievable permanence. Check out he video to see the controversial posts.
