Outrage has poured in on social media after Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague’s new dog has died after just six days of ownership.

Molly-Mae’s boyfriend, Tommy Fury gave her ‘Mr Chai’, a Pomeranian puppy, for her 21st birthday which she documented on her YouTube channel. Within a day, they had already set up an Instagram account for the dog called ‘@MrChaiBear.

But in a statement shared on both Tommy and Molly-Mae’s Instagram stories, they announced that Mr Chai had died, only six days later.

The statement said: “Our beautiful new puppy Mr Chai was taken ill in the last few days and tragically has passed away.

“We are really hoping that we can get some clearer answers in the coming days whilst we wait for details and more information from the veterinary experts.

“Myself and Tommy are completely in shock and truly devastated. In a world currently full of tragedy and loss, we understand there are far greater issues than this. We just need to share the information in order to start the process of trying to accept and over come this awful situation.”

One concerned user on Twitter wrote: “That’s what you get when you buy a designer dog as an accessory for Instagram likes.”

Another person tweeted that the situation ‘should really highlight the dangers of shipping dogs from overseas.’ They also added the hashtag ‘AdoptDontShop’, which encourages would-be pet-owners to look first to animals up for adoption.

Mr Chai came from Breeder Elena Katerova, who runs Tiffany Chihuahuas & Pomeranians. Molly-Mae previously revealed the dog was being imported from Russia.

Elena Katerova came under fire in 2018 after she reportedly sold a Pomeranian puppy that had a metal splint inserted into its leg six weeks before it was bought by a customer.

According to the Tiffany Puppies Instagram account, Former Love Islanders Belle Hassan and Laura Anderson have bought puppies from the same breeder. Other customers include the TikTok star Lea Elui, who has more than 11m followers on the platform, Loren Gray and HRVY.

Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury met on the set of Love Island in 2019 where they won runners up behind Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea. The pair have a combined 7.3 million followers on Instagram.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
