Molly-Mae Hague has faced criticism online, after calling a £2,000 puffer jacket “chav chic”.

The Love Island star unboxed a Gucci x North Face coat on her Instagram Stories on Monday, showing off the expensive designer item to her 5.1 million followers.

Trying on the lavish coat, the 21-year-old wrote: “Chav chic and I’m here for it.”

The reality star faced backlash for the post on Twitter, with many branding her “tone deaf” and “classist”.

One follower wrote: “chav has always been a classist word to mock working/lower class people it’s not a new thing /: i love molly mae but baby no.”

A second tweeted: “Calling out molly mae for using the words chav chic to describe a £2000+ coat is not ‘jealousy’, I absolutely love her but she is very tone deaf and so are a lot of you on here clearly …”

Another penned: “molly mae’s probably a nice girl n all but calling her new north face gucci coat ‘chav chic’ was not it”.

Others jumped to the Love Island star’s defence, with one writing: “Wait ppl are tryna cancel molly mae for saying “chav” ¿”

A second Twitter user tweeted: “I simply can’t cope at the fact people are cancelling molly mae for using the word chav LMAO.”

Last month, Molly-Mae and her boxer boyfriend Tommy were revealed as highest earning reality TV couple on Instagram, charging £20k per post, according to ManySpins.com.
