TikToker @HayleyyBaylee is reportedly under fire for a Met Gala post. 

HOLR breaks down the claims.

HayleyyBaylee Met Gala

As noted in this piece posted by CNN, @HayleyyBaylee (Haley Kalil) came under fire for posting (and now, deleting) a video with the audio, “let them eat cake,” while dressed in a Marie Antoinette-inspired look for the 2024 Met Gala- which was earlier this month.


MET GALA 2024: Garden of Time @Marc Bouwer & I wanted to capture the elegance of the 1600s/1700s period of fashion (& my obsession with Bridgerton) while also exploring different textures of glass, crystal, and florals. The Met Gala 2024 theme was named after “The Garden of Time” – a short story by J.G Ballard. Since the story has melenchaly elements, Marc chose to make the gown in soft, almost moody colors. 🫶🏻 #MetGala2024

HayleyyBaylee Apology

Kalil has since apologized after facing backlash for the “tone-deaf” post, as it sparked the #blockout2024 movement- where users were blocking celebs and influencers. She took to social media to share an apology video here, in which she addresses how she was in touch with E! Network to host the pre-Met Gala coverage at The Mark Hotel in Manhattan. She was not invited to the actual Met Gala event.

She also addresses the use of the sound which sparked backlash.

“First and foremost, before I say anything, I need to apologize. I am so, so, so sorry that I chose a sound that you guys could ever possibly feel was malicious in nature. If I had thought for even one second that the sound would be received that way, I never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever would have used it.” (here)
