Stylist Jessica Mulroney celebrated her daughter’s birthday in Toronto today, although she was abandoned by ABC.
The now-released fashion host and GMA influencer – who was reportedly cut off by her BFF Meghan Markle, 38, in the midst of an embarrassing race – is facing a huge backlash after allegedly threatening to sue black influencer Sasha Exeter in a series of nasty Instagram posts.
She comes after she was called in not to openly support the “Black Lives Matter” movement – with a report claiming that the Duchess of Sussex was left “mortified” by the actions of her friend “deaf tone” and severed all ties with her.
On Friday, pink balloons adorned the exterior of the family’s posh Toronto home as the mother-of-three celebrated her daughter Ivy’s seventh birthday.

On Thursday, close friends of the Duchess of Sussex told DailyMail.com exclusively that Meghan Markle was “absolutely mortified” by her best friend Jessica Mulroney’s “deaf-deaf” threats to sue a black influencer and that she “could no longer be associated with her.”
Meghan is absolutely mortified that she was dragged into this complete mess. She said Jessica is by no means racist, but the way she handled the situation (with the fashion influencer) was tone-deaf and heartbreaking,” said a close friend of Meghan’s.
Mulroney was fired from ABC’s Good Morning America and had his reality show cancelled after threatening to sue black influencer Sasha Exeter after the couple lined up for racism on Instagram.
“Meghan said that friends reflect friends and that because of what’s at stake, she can no longer be associated with Jessica, at least not in public. It must do what it has to do to preserve its dignity and its own reputation,” they added.

“Meghan said that friends reflect friends and because of what’s at stake, she can no longer be associated with Jessica,” a source told DailyMail.com
The scandal brings intense embarrassment to Meghan, who has devoted her brief time as a royal to promoting social good and is an advocate for racial equality for life.
The source added that they “wouldn’t be surprised” if it marked the “beginning of the end of their friendship.”
They also said that Meghan cannot publicly defend Mulroney in this case or help save his career.
“It’s not like Meghan can just call ABC and defend Jessica,” the source said. “There was a reason Meghan waited so long to make a statement. She wanted to do the right thing. She said she urged Jessica to do the same as soon as takeoff.
Meghan took note of the reasons why she waited to make her statement on racial inequality in a virtual speech to the graduating class at her former high school.
“I wasn’t sure what I could tell you. I wanted to say the right thing and I was really nervous that I wouldn’t or that he would be taken apart. And I realized that the only bad thing to say is not to say anything,” Meghan said.
Sasha Exeter, a Toronto influencer, said she was “paralyzed by fear” and “stay day by day day until night” by worrying about what Jessica (right) “might say to my existing brand partners, potential work, potential livelihoods.”

Mulroney referred to Meghan in his apology to Exeter on Instagram, saying: “I am unequivocally sorry for not doing this with you and for any harm I have caused.
“As I told you privately, I had a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where the race was at the forefront. It was deeply educational.
“‘learned a lot from this. I promise to continue to learn and listen how I can use my privilege to raise and support black voices.
The turmoil began when black Canadian influencer Sasha Exeter revealed that a few weeks ago Mulroney had “offended” a “generic call to action” she had made by asking white influencers to use their platforms.
A few hours laterS having released his first video of his feud with Mulroney, Exeter said he received other messages “threatening a lawsuit to try to silence you.”
Exeter went on to claim that she had received a private message from Jessica suggesting that she would file a lawsuit against her
She claimed mulroney threatened Exeter with a lawsuit after Exeter publicly revealed they had been involved in a gun-deprived war over racism.
According to Exeter, Mulroney responded “personally” to a “generic call to action” that the black single mother launched on her Instagram page a few weeks ago, asking white influencers to use their platforms to advance the Black Lives Matter movement.
It is not clear how Mulroney responded, but the two— who were once “knowledge” – began to argue and he “ultiMately” rose to Mulroney to tell Exeter that she would contact the companies with which Exeter worked.
When Exeter went public, Mulroney posted a comment on her Instagram page for others to see in which she apologized. Exeter claims she then sent him a private message, threatening to sue her for defamation.
‘Costume responsible. Good luck,” she wrote, misspelled the complaint she seemed to want to make.
After Exeter shared the details of their feud, Mulroney published this public comment that she was wrong, but that she had “personal experience with” her “closest mid where race was in the foreground.”
Canadian television station CTV fired Mulroney on Thursday and cancelled his wedding show, I Do It, Redo. She was also abandoned by a clothing company she worked with.
On Thursday night, Ms. Mulroney posted a statement on her own Instagram page saying that she had had time to reflect on her actions and that she was truly remorseful.
“She rightly called me not to do enough when it came to engaging in the important and difficult conversation about race and injustice in our society.
“E took it personally and it was wrong. I have to do better. I had no intention of jeopardizing his livelihood. We had a disagreement and it got out of hand.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I will be retiring from social media in the next few days and giving my microphone to black voices by having them take over my account.
“I also asked Sasha if she would be willing to take charge of my account whenever she is comfortable and tell her story,” she said.
