Jessica Mulroney and reality star Stassi Schroeder both seem to be best friends, Mulroney saying to Vanderpump Rules star: “Love you girl”.
Mulroney, who is Meghan Markle’s best friend stylist, made this comment to Schroeder in November of last year on social media. But Mulroney appeared to be trying to distance himself and cut the post just after Schroeder ended with Vanderpump Rules this week.
The cleanup took place while Mulroney was involved in a row of racism on his part after black influencer Sasha Exeter claimed that Mulroney had threatened his career for asking him to speak up for Black Lives Matter.
And on Thursday, Mulroney suffered the same fate as Schroeder and was fired as a bridal marketing specialist and saw his reality show canceled for comments to Exeter.

Stowers said, “There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African American woman.
“It was a weird photo, so it looked very clear and had these different strange tattoos. They presented it and I guess this woman was stealing people. And they called the cops and said it was me. It’s like, a true story. “
Schroeder later apologized and said “what I did to Faith was wrong.”

Sasha Exter said Mulroney told her that she “talked to businesses and people about how you treated me unfairly”, which she saw as a threat to her livelihood.
The argument could complicate Mulroney’s friendship with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, whom she has known for years.
Mulroney helped plan her marriage to Prince Harry and defended her against online “racist bullies.”
Last night CTV announced that the reality show Mulroney I Do, Redo has been removed from all of its “effective immediately” channels.
“The recent conduct of one of our program hosts, Jessica Mulroney, is contrary to our commitment to diversity and equality,” said a statement.
Mulroney apologized to Exeter – an “old acquaintance” – in a message to his 400,000 Instagram followers. She said, “I had no intention of jeopardizing her livelihood. We had a disagreement and it got out of hand. For that, I’m sorry. “
The argument with Exeter, a Canadian brand ambassador for Joe Fresh, puts Mulroney’s attitude to the race in the spotlight.
She wrote about her experience in an article on Instagram titled “MY” AMY COOPER “EXPERIENCE”.
The name refers to a white woman named Amy Cooper who called the police to a black bird watcher in New York’s Central Park because she felt he was threatening.
Exter writes: “Enough is enough … I will be damned if my child has to face this level of ignorance.”

Exeter went on to say that Jessica sent her a private message suggesting that she file a complaint against her.
Mulroney issued a statement after her dismissal, saying that she respects CTV’s decision and that she is sorry for her actions
Exeter said she was careful not to “call” anyone in particular, but Mulroney got it wrong.
She said: “Unfortunately, a very prominent Canadian person who was an acquaintance of mine, named Jessica Mulroney, took offense at a very generic call to action that I shared in my IG stories (Instagram ).
“What happened next was a series of very problematic behaviors and antics that ultimately led her to send me a threat in writing last Wednesday.
“Look, I’m by no means calling Jess a racist, but what I will say is that she is very aware of her wealth, power and perceived privileges because of the color of her skin.
“And that my friends gave him the momentary confidence to come to earn a living in writing.”
Over the next week, Mulroney “ticked each box of what a white woman should absolutely not do during the greatest racial uproar in history.”
Exeter said “it was not a problem she wanted to share on her social media”, apologizing that she would be “intimidated by the public” for speaking
Mulroney claimed it [reality] the show was more important to promote because it got into the season finale and it’s his job and understand that they count too.
Exeter attacked Mulroney and said that she “had spent the first full week of the crisis promoting her TV show without any mention of support or solidarity.”
But that was not enough, so Mulroney “made himself the victim and I the villain,” said Exeter.
Exeter said Mulroney blocked her from her Instagram account and sent her a “trail of offensive messages.”
One of them read, “I have also talked to companies and people about how you have treated me unfairly. You think your voice counts – well, it only matters if you speak it kindly and without shaming people who are just trying to learn. Good luck’.
Resuming tears, Exeter said, “I always shake my head at this attempt and the boldness …. Like Amy Cooper, she spat this threat effortlessly.
“What makes this really horrible is the claim that she was talking to the brands and companies that I work with or possibly could work with.
“It is a threat to my livelihood and to threaten me, a single mother, a single black mother during a racial pandemic blows my mind. It’s absolutely amazing. ”
Exeter said Mulroney realized that she “screwed up the mess” by writing it all down, warning him, “I got the receipts.”
Before his dismissal, Mulroney apologized to Exeter on his Instagram
Mulroney posted an apology to Exeter on his own Instagram page on Thursday, insisting that she never intended to jeopardize her livelihoods
Exeter said, “It resulted in a lot of back pedaling, a lot of apologies after excuses through text messages.
Jessica Mulroney “Used Extreme Privilege,” Says Her Friend Tracy Moore
Jessica Mulroney’s friend Tracy Moore accused her fellow TV presenter of “using her extreme privilege to potentially bury a black sister.”
Moore, host of Cityline, said she made the “difficult” decision to talk about a friend because people need to “unlearn attacking black women as a legitimate response to the feeling of to be called “.
“Friends and family members will show real colors and the learning opportunities will be huge,” she said in an Instgram article last night.
“Jess has seen this legend (I don’t like to ambush) and knows how I feel.
“I never claimed to be far from committed to my community and this fight against anti-black racism.
‘Unlearn privilege as a shield for your white frailty and use it instead to protect those in need.’
She added, “Jess sat on the phone while I was hollering, cuddling, soothing, lifting up.
“She helped me in a big and small way with my fashion side.
“She strategized with me, ate with me, laughed like crazy with me over and over again.
“And that’s what makes it so difficult. I am a friend. I am also a black woman.
“Emotional work often comes back to us for talking, getting through and struggling hard. The price to remain silent or speak? Immense. Cue extreme exhaustion.
“How can you talk about the black people and support the empowerment of women outside when you try to silence a black woman behind closed doors?” It just seems very contradictory. “
Exeter admits that she was “actually paralyzed with fear” at the thought of speaking and said nothing for five days during which she barely slept and called her parents for advice.
She was torn to speak and “years of systematic racism made me believe there would be more harm than good,” says Exeter.
She said, “Thinking about it and realizing it made me really, really sad.”
Raising her daughter made her think again and that she didn’t want her to face something like this.
Mulroney unlocked Exeter and commented with an apology that reads, “You’re right when you say this shit must stop.”
“As leaders, we must join forces and speak out against wrongs. I know we have different experiences. And that’s something, even in a heated argument, I have to recognize and understand.
“I’m really sorry I didn’t do this with you and for all the harm that I caused. As I told you privately, I had a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where the race was at the center. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot. I promise to continue to learn and listen to how I can use my privilege to raise and support black voices.
Then she deleted it.
In an article published a week ago, Mulroney says that she has “always resisted racism” on Instagram, but “someone dear to me tells me that it is not enough these days is not enough “, An apparent reference to Meghan.
In an apparent search at Exter, Mulroney said that it is not enough “to use Instagram to be” activists “and that you must” go beyond a quote that you share “.
Born Jessica Brownstein, Mulroney married television host Ben Mulroney, who is also the son of a former Canadian Prime Minister.
Before Harry and Meghan formalized their relationship, Mulroney shared many photos of her with the Duchess of Sussex on her Instagram.
But since the couple’s marriage, Mulroney has been much more diligent. She only posted one message after the wedding: “Proud friend, proud mom,” she writes.
“Everyone must have a little privacy in their life,” Mulroney told Harper’s Bazaar in March 2019, the only interview she has given since marriage.
“There are things I will never talk about for sure,” she said, referring to her friendship with Meghan.
In August, after Meghan and Harry were criticized for taking a jet to visit singer Elton John on the French Riviera, Mulroney criticized the critics who attacked his friend.
“Shame on you, racist brutes,” she wrote on Instagram, without going into details.
