MICHELLE Mone has been mocked after claiming in a single tweet that she is a world-class expert in lingerie design, enterpreneurship – and cryptocurrency.
Mone took to twitter to humblebrag about her new found knowledge of cryptocurrency after launching her new business with billionaire boyfriend Doug Barrowman.
Mone posted a screenshot of a Forbes article about her company with the caption: “I never thought I could go from being on [sic] of the best technical lingerie designers in the World, No1 woman entrepreneur to one of the biggest experts in Cryptocurrency & Blockchain #believe.”
But Baroness Mone of Mayfair, OBE, appears not to be believed by some social media users, several of whom responded with digs.
User SPC joked: “‘I’m the most modest person you’ll ever meet.’”
Zippy added: “To be fair Michelle, if my boyfriend was a billionaire I’d probably be an expert in anything he wanted me to be too #stayhumble.”
Lucian Lonzanu post a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio in the Wolf of Wall Street clapping with the caption: “One of the biggest experts in crypto and blockchain?”
Stephen Hall wrote: “No one believes that haha.”
Mark Tomlinson commented: “Surely you’re an expert when it’s a success not at the point of when a product is launched?”
And Highway added: “Nobody believes you’re a blockchain expert hen.”
Alan Crooks said: “What happened to being a top Interior Designer? Got bored of that did we?”
Steinish said simply: “So humble.”
At the beginning of the month, social media users trolled Michelle Mone after she made a video trying to explain her cryptocurrency venture.
Mone’s explanatory video, in which she used the phrase “blockchain technology”, recieved a sceptical response from some social media users.
One described the clip as “a load of s***e.” while others ridiculed the former Ultimo boss for adopting what they claim is a posh, west end of Glasgow accent.
