Molly-Mae Hague ‘quits social media’ after cruel trolls claim she and Tommy Fury ‘killed’ their dog
Molly-Mae Hague has reportedly decided to quit social media after suffering abuse over the tragic and untimely death of her Pomeranian puppy, Mr Chai.
The 21 year old and her boyfriend Tommy Fury, who met on the hit ITV dating show Love Island in 2019, recently came under fire from cruel trolls who accused the pair of "killing" their dog, just six days after he was imported from Russia.
Now it is thought the reality star is taking a step back from her social media channels in the wake of the backlash she's received from the public.

A source told The Sun: "Molly-Mae is taking a break to have time to herself for a few days."
On Wednesday, 3 June, the blonde beauty and her significant other posted a 12-minute long YouTube video hitting back at claims slamming them for shipping a dog from abroad.
In the clip, Molly-Mae explained she had paid to get an autopsy done on the puppy, who died after a seizure, which had revealed he had enlarged organs, a low white blood cell count, which meant he couldn’t fight infections, and an under-developed skull.
The influencer said: “What the vet said is that if Chai was in Russia, if Chai was in my mum’s care, or with the breeder, Chai was always going to pass away with the condition he was born with, with everything that was wrong with him he was not going to be able to survive past a very, very young age.”
The couple then moved to clear up some of the criticism they had received after announcing the death of their dog.
She said: “Whilst we understand people’s opinions with him being shipped from Russia, which we completely understand and agree with what people are saying, that is not what made this little baby dog pass away.”

Molly-Mae, whose Love Island pals Olivia Attwood and Olivia Bowen have both defended her, then insisted they didn’t take the dog out before its immunisations and the pup was given the injections before he was handed over to them.
She said: “One thing I just wanna clarify which I has upset me more than anything, I’ve literally been devastated over for the last two hours is that people think that we took Chai out before he had his injections.
“I just wanna clarify that we would never, ever do that. Chai had every single injections, every single vaccination. He was four and a half months old.

"The breeder gives him his injections before we get him into our care. So we were told it was fine to take him outside, which it was.”
She added: “Anyone making comments about us killing our own dog… I mean, honestly,” before putting her hand over her mouth.
