The celebrity stylist and close friend to Meghan Markle has been accused of using white privilege to silence lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter following an argument over the Black Lives Matter movement.

AceShowbiz - Jessica Mulroney has lost another TV gig after being accused of threatening black influencer Sasha Exeter. Just one day after CTV pulled her "I Do, Redo" series off the air, "Good Morning America" followed suit by announcing that the celebrity stylist will no longer appear as contributor on the morning show.

The ABC show made the announcement of Mulroney's exit in a statement released via Twitter on Friday, June 12. "As Jessica Mulroney said last night, she is stepping away from her professional engagements and that includes Good Morning America. She will no longer appear on our show," the tweet read.

The close friend to Meghan Markle has worked as a style contributor on "GMA" since November 2018.

Mulroney came under fire after Exeter alleged that she was using her white privilege to threaten her livelihood following an argument over her "very generic call to action" for the Black Lives Matter movement. In a 12-minute long video posted on Instagram, Exeter claimed that Mulroney's behavior has left her "paralyzed with fear."

"Listen, I am by no means calling [Mulroney] 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. And that, my friends, gave her the momentary confidence to come for my livelihood in writing," Exeter explained. "For her to threaten me - a single mom, a single black mom - during a racial pandemic blows my mind."

Mulroney responded to the allegations with a public apology. "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," she posted on Instagram. "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."

Though so, the 40-year-old was met with a cutoff from CTV. "Because recent conduct by one of our shows hosts, Jessica Mulroney, conflicts with our commitment to diversity and equality, CTV has removed 'I DO REDO' from all Bell Media channels and platforms effective immediately," the media company announced.

The announcement prompted Mulroney to issue another apology. In an Instagram Story post, she also stated that she respected CTV's decision, and announced that she will be stepping away from her professional engagement "to reflect, learn and focus on my family." She further clarified, "I have no intention of pursuing any legal action. I was wrong, and for that I am truly sorry."
