Jessica Mulroney was benefitting a whole lot from her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex, formerly Meghan Markle. She was using her friend’s status as a selling tool to make deals with companies like Kleinfeld, Hudson’s Bay, CTV, ABC and Harper’s Bazaar. She had begun styling celebrities like Mindy Kaling.
But then her treatment of Black Toronto influencer Sasha Exeter came out. Jessica tried to manage that scandal by threatening Sasha with a “liable” lawsuit (the correct term is “libel”). Sasha posted the threatening message from Jessica on her Instagram, and the cancellation of JM that had already begun look on a whole new life. Her brand and sponsorship deals dropped like flies. These Instagram stories are from a 24-hour period after Sasha posted the pic of Jessica’s “liable” comment.
