Meghan Markle’s longtime best friend Jessica Mulroney is under fire from her CTV job due to her “white privilege” and threatening actions with a colored woman.

On June 11, CTV confirmed on Twitter that they have fired the Canadian stylist, Jessica Mulroney because of her recent actions conflicting with the Canadian media company's commitment to diversity and equality.

"Because recent conduct by one of our shows hosts, Jessica Mulroney, conflict with our commitment to diversity and equality, CTV has removed 'I Do, Redo' from all Bell Media channels and platforms effective immediately."

Earlier,  Sasha Exeter - a black influencer, took to social media and accused Mulroney of threatening her when arguing about "speaking up" against racism. Exeter said Mulroney had "offended a very general call to action" she had made encouraging fellow Canadians and influencers to support the Black Lives Matter movement, causing conflicts on debated topics to white privilege and racism.

Exeter claimed in the video that she received a message from Mulroney that read, "I have also spoken to companies and people about the way you have 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 took this as a threat to damage her career and said the message had left her paralyzed with fear.

"For her to threaten me—a single mom, a single Black mom—during a racial pandemic blows my mind," she stated.

In response, Mulroney posted an apology on her own Instagram page to send to Exeter.

 "I want to say from my heart that every word of my apologies to Sasha over the course of the last two weeks privately, and again both publicly and privately today is true. I did not intend in any way to jeopardize her livelihood. We had a disagreement and it got out of hand. For that I am sorry."

In addition, the 40-year-old host also promised to listen and support the black voice. However, a few hours later, Exeter revealed that Mulroney sent another private message to her and threatened to file a lawsuit against her.

I'm 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," Sasha added.

Mulroney's reality show, I Do, Redo, premiered on CTV at the end of March and was also released internationally on Netflix. Mulroney also presents a fashion segment for ABC's Good Morning America.
