Hailey might have thought it was a funny phrase to say since she resembles Marie, but it was not, and netizens expressed outrage after she mumbled that.

It turns out, Marie was someone who did not care much about the poor and people who were starving.

When she got to know that the poor people were starving, all she said was, ‘Let them eat cake’ without realizing the severity of the situation with hunger among the people.

The video of Hailey saying that has become very famous, mostly because of the political issue with Gaza right now.

People have commented that with the war on and people starting to detain, Hailey shouldn’t have said something as controversial as she did.

Some people also commented that Hailey did that intentionally and it wasn’t a mistake; she said that by choice, which wasn’t liked by netizens and viewers.

Hailey faces ongoing issues and criticism from online viewers, who are swarming her with comments about her controversial statement on air.

Hailey later released a video saying that she did not mean to state that in a bad way; that term was the only thing she knew about Marie, hence she mumbled that out in the video.

“I just wanted to clarify that this sound was used because my dress was Marie Antoinette-themed. That is the ONLY reason. I would never use this sound for any other meaning that’s heartbreaking,”

is what Hailey said.
