AceShowbiz - Jessica Mulroney, who is better known as Meghan Markle's best friend, has been accused of bullying. Canadian social media personality Sasha Exter has come out with the allegation against the fashion stylist in a lengthy video posted on Instagram.
In the Wednesday, June 10 video, Sasha detailed that she posted on her Stories to encourage influencers to use their platform to speak about the Black Lives Matter movement. She didn't specifically call out people who remained silent on the issue, but apparently Jessica took it personal.
Having not posted anything about the BLM movement, she claimed that she had a show to promote and "it mattered too." The 40-year-old got offended and played the victim card, sending Sasha multiple messages including one which 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."
In the caption of the video, Sasha said she received the messages from Jessica last week, but only now opened up about it because it had been "haunting" her. "I have felt like a complete fraud fighting for racial equality and using my voice openly here, while letting a white woman silence mine behind closed doors," she admitted.
"Enough is enough," she declared. "Hopefully my voice will be heard by many and help change things for the next generation and for my daughter Maxwell... because I will be dammed if my child ever has to deal with this level of ignorance."
Sasha's allegation comes roughly a week after Jessica announced that she's "taking a week off" from Instagram "to educate herself." Prior to this, she claimed that "someone dear to her told her to stand up to racism."
"I've always stood up to racism and injustice on this platform but someone dear to me let me know being silent these days is not enough. People sometimes use Instagram to be 'activists,' " so she claimed. Jessica didn't name the said critic, but the story and timeline matched that of Sasha's claims.
