Meghan Markle’s Best Friend Jessica Mulroney Gets Canceled By ABC & CTV After Blogger Sasha Exeter Called Her Out On White Privilege

​ ​ ​ ​

Folks are being exposed and are suffering the consequences as a result of their racist behavior. Blogger Sasha Exeter put Canadian fashion stylist Jessica Mulroney - Meghan Markle’s best friend – on full blast in an 11-minute video after she threatened her multiple times. Companies associated with Jessica quickly cut ties with her. More inside….

CALL.THEM.OUT.

Nope, black people are no longer staying silent. When whites flex their privilege, they are now being called out for it.

Canadian lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter had enough and decided to post a near 12-minute video on Instagram about her experiences with Canadian fashion stylist Jessica Mulroney, who is also Meghan Markle's best friend. In the video, Sasha talked about how she believes Jessica took offense to a general call to action to influencers to use their platforms to promote anti-racism. It resulted in Jessica playing nice in Sasha's comments, but sending her threats behind-the-scenes.

"What happened next was a series of very problematic behavior and antics that ultimately resulted in [Mulroney] sending me a threat in writing last Wednesday," Sasha said in the video.

"Listen, I am by no means calling Jess a racist but what I will say is this, she is very well aware of her wealth, her perceived power and privilege because of the color of her skin. And that, my friends, gave her the momentary confidence to come for my livelihood in writing," she continued, accusing Mulroney of using her "textbook white privilege."

Sasha made claims that Jessica contacted brands and spoke poorly of her. Imagine.

"MY 'AMY COOPER” EXPERIENCE,'" Sasha wrote in the caption referencing the incident with the white woman in Central Park who called the police and lied on a black man. "I’ve been silent. Not anymore!⁣

"I’m used to being so transparent on this platform. I think it’s the main reason why most of you follow me. Today, I’m opening up about something that has been haunting me for the last week. I have felt like a complete fraud fighting for racial equality and using my voice openly here, while letting a white woman silence mine behind closed doors. In sharing this very personal story, I know that I am risking a lot. Opening myself up to criticism, bullying and potential ramifications with my job in this space. However, I must speak my truth. Enough is enough. Hopefully my voice will be heard by many and help change things for the next generation and for my daughter Maxwell... because I will be dammed if my child ever has to deal with this level of ignorance."

Sasha explained how Jessica allegedly sent her threatening messages after she shared her video:

“I was blocked from her Instagram account,” Sasha said. “And [I was sent] a trail of offensive messages that ended in her saying, ‘I have also spoken to companies and people about the way you treated me unfairly. You think your voice matters. Well it only matters if you express it with kindness and without shaming people who are simply trying to learn. Good luck.’”

“Not only is Jessica very well aware of her white privilege, but just like…Amy Cooper, she spewed out that threat so effortlessly. But I think what makes the situation really horrendous is the threat or the claim that she was going ahead and speaking to brands and companies that I potentially have worked with or am currently working with or could possible work with.”

She continued, “That’s a threat to my livelihood. For her to threaten me, a single mom, a single Black mom, during a racial pandemic, blows my mind. It is absolutely unbelievable.”

First, Jessica  posted a comment in Sasha's comments section that said:

"As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and centre. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that."

Then, she popped off in the DMs.

Sasha said Jessica sent her a DM, which read: "Liable [sic] suit. Good luck."

After that, Jessica posted an apology to Sasha on her Instagram account

The damage had already been done. CTV dropped her wedding reality series "I Do Redo," and issued this statement:

Bell Media and CTV encourages our entire team including our on-air talent to practice respect, inclusivity, and allyship as we pledge to work better and more openly to listen to and amplify Black voices, and not to minimize them.

Because recent conduct by one of our shows [sic] hosts, Jessica Mulroney conflicts with our commitment to diversity and equality, CTV has removed "I DO REDO" from all Bell Media channels and platforms effective immediately.

Jessica also tweeted she's stepping away from her professional engagements, which included being featured on "Good Morning America."

"As Jessica Mulroney said last night, she is stepping away from her professional engagements and that includes Good Morning America. She will no longer appear on our show," ABC's morning show said in a tweet on Friday.

After the companies dropped her, Jessica issued another statement/apology:

“The events that have transpired over the last few days have made it clear that I have work to do,” Jessica wrote. “I realize more than ever how being a white, privileged woman has put me far ahead of so many, and in particular those in the Black community. And while I can’t change the past, I can do my part to do better in the future.”

Looks like someone is trying to save face...
