4 Companies That Have Dropped Jessica Mulroney Amid Her White Privilege Scandal
Dropping like flies. Just days after Jessica Mulroney got called out for acting on white privilege and lashing out over texts, several of the companies she worked with have cut their ties and said goodbye. The Canadian fashion stylist got into hot water when she reportedly threatened a Black lifestyle blogger last week.
Sasha Exeter, Toronto native and founder of So Sasha, took to Instagram on June 10 to share her "Amy Cooper" like experience with Mulroney who exhibited "textbook white privilege".
In her 11-minute long video, the blogger explains that her former acquaintance took personal offence when Exeter shared a call to action post urging influencers to use their platforms to promote the Black Lives Matter movement.
Mulroney apparently felt that the post was a direct call out to her and she subsequently engaged in "a series of very problematic behaviour and antics, that ultimately resulted in her sending me a threat in writing".
Exeter claims, "[I was] 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 colour of her skin."
Mulroney issued three public apologies for her behaviour, the most recent which came after her reality TV series I Do, Redo was cancelled by its network provider.
Now, four companies that previously had partnerships with the 40-year-old announced that they no longer have ties with her.
