Jessica Mulroney, blogger and TV personality has just been axed from CTV after another Toronto fashion blogger called her out for her silence on Black Lives matter and she privately threatened her. Jessica, as you may know, is the wife of TV host Ben Mulroney and best friends with Duchess Meghan Markle. Blogger Sasha Exeter posted a video on Instagram without using names, calling out a couple prominent figures in the industry who not only remained silent but refused her calls to help out. One was Jessica. Even though she didn’t name her, Jessica slid into her DMs. In a series of private conversations, Jess basically told her to back off and also threatened her professionally. (Jess has a lot of ties). Sasha called her out at that point and showed one of the messages she received. CTV has since cut ties with Jessica, adding that they have removed her show “I DO REDO” from all Bell Media channels and platforms effective immediately. Jessica has since posted that she knows she did not do enough. Adding “I took it personally and that was wrong. I know I need to do better. Those of us with a platform must use it to speak out.”

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.
