Simone Holtznagel’s confrontation with Mick Molloy

She made piece with the Triple M host at Melbourne’s Grand Prix on Friday, after he labelled her a ‘plus-sized model’ and compared her to a ‘baby elephant’.

And I’m A Celebrity’s Simone Holtznagel told news.com.au on Monday, what they spoke about during their confrontation.

‘I just reminded him that fat-shaming people isn’t cool,’ the 24-year-old told the publication.

‘I reminded him that fat-shaming isn’t cool’: Simone Holtznagel, 24, speaks to news.com.au about her confrontation with Mick Molloy, 51, at Melbourne’s Grand Prix on Friday, after the Triple M host compared her to a ‘baby elephant’

‘He was very apologetic, and said again it was a joke, and that’s fine. I just reminded him that fat-shaming people isn’t cool, whether you’re a model or not,’ Simone said of her chat with Mick, 51. 

Their chat which lasted for approximately 10 minutes in the Channel Ten marquee, saw the Playboy model clearing the air.

‘[I told him] you just don’t need to make comments like that or resort to name calling. There’s far funnier stuff to talk about than that [people’s weight and body image].’

Shortly after the interaction at Grand Prix, Simone took to her Instagram account, sharing a picture of the pair embracing and letting out a wide grin.

The starlet, in a leopard-print Manning Cartell frock captioned the post simply with ‘Hatchet = buried’. 

Earlier this month, radio host Mick Molloy critcised Simone for her figure in an on-air body shaming incident.

On Triple M’s Kennedy Molloy drive show, Mick accused the blonde bombshell of being too large to be a model, in comments that left co-host Jane Kennedy shocked.

Mick said of Simone: ‘She claims to be a model of some description. She claims to be a world class international model. I call bulls**t on that.’

‘I mean, maybe a plus-size model,’ he continued.

‘She’s been in the jungle for 10 weeks now and still…’ Mick added, before humming the Baby Elephant Walk.

Jane sounded shocked by Mick’s remarks and defended Simone.

‘Come on, that is incredibly rude of you!’ she said.

Simone, who left the South African jungle earlier this month, has enjoyed an illustrious career after appearing on Australia’s Next Top Model in 2011.

The genetically-blessed star has posed for Playboy and featured in campaigns for Guess and other high-profile brands.
