Meghan Markle’s best friend fired after racist threats!!!
It started, Exeter said, when she wrote call-to-action Instagram posts about Black Lives Matter and the global protests following the death of George Floyd. According to Exeter, in a series of private conversations, Mulroney assumed that Exeter’s posts amounted to public criticism of the fact that Mulroney had not posted about the racial justice movement on her own social media. Hours later, Mulroney posted an apology on Exeter’s account.
“I thought long and hard about naming this person in this video,” Exeter told her followers in an Instagram story, after unspooling a detailed account of her correspondences with Mulroney over the past week. “And I personally feel that if we’re going to hold companies accountable during this time, we need to hold individuals accountable as well. And part of this woman’s power and privilege and her last name and her family made this whole thing scary. But there was no point in speaking up and sharing this without her name being called out.” (Mulroney is married to former prime minister Brian Mulroney’s son Ben.)
Exeter explained in the initial video that she believes Mulroney “wrongly assumed that my generic call to action on my Instagram stories was a direct and blatant callout to her.” Mulroney, whose series called I Do Redo is currently airing in Canada, allegedly told Exeter that she didn’t want to post about the issues on social media for a number of reasons, including that she needed to promote a new series and did not want to be bullied.
“I was blocked from her Instagram account,” said Exeter of what happened afterward. “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.’” Exeter said, “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. 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.”
Exeter said that Mulroney attempted to backpedal and explain her behavior over private text message. But, Exeter said, “How can you be about the Black people and be about female empowerment on the outside when you are attempting to silence a Black woman during this movement, behind closed doors?”
