Jessica Mulroney's First Instagram After Her Hiatus Is All About Meghan Markle
Jessica Mulroney is back on the 'Gram. Well, she was... for a hot second. Following a two month hiatus from Instagram after facing major backlash for exhibiting white privilege in an exchange with fashion blogger Sasha Exeter, she was back to posting on Aug. 27. But after seeing her newest post, some may be surprised by Jessica Mulroney's first Instagram after her hiatus.
Interestingly enough, Mulroney's first post back on IG was all about Meghan Markle. Despite rumors of a rift between the two ladies, it appears there's no bad blood, at least, not according to Mulroney's photos.
The fashion stylist, whose twin sons held Meghan's veil as she walked down the aisle at her May 2018 wedding, shared a throwback photo of the special moment. "I see this and pure joy," she captioned her post, which showed one of her boys standing behind Meghan.
The photo arrived after much speculation her friendship with Meghan was on the rocks. To add to the confusion, Mulroney went private shortly after posting the photo.
In June, Mulroney came under fire after lifestyle blogger Exeter accused her of exhibiting "textbook white privilege behavior." Exeter recounted an exchange with Mulroney where the stylist seemingly threatened to speak to her brand partners because of a personal disagreement they had, and she shared a 12-minute video about the experience with her followers.
"I'm by no means calling Jess a racist but what I will say is this: She is very well aware of her wealth, perceived power and privilege because of the colour of her skin and that, my friends, gave her the momentary confidence to come for my livelihood in writing. Textbook white privilege really, in my personal opinion," she said.
Mulroney issued an apology to Exeter on June 11, explaining that the situation spurred her to take a break from social media. “I plan to use this time to reflect, learn and listen,” she said at the time.
With her start-and-stop return to Instagram, it's unclear what Mulroney's next social media move will be.
