JESSICA MULRONEY – the former friend of Meghan Markle – branded Instagram trolls “petty and cowardly” during a furious rant in unearthed accounts.
Jessica Mulroney’s fallout with Meghan Markle may be revealed in a tell-all book after the Duchess of Sussex allegedly cut off all ties with her, according to the Mirror. The stylist, who befriended the royal while she filmed TV show ‘Suits’ in Toronto, Canada, is reported to be “devastated” by the end of their friendship. The US film and TV actress allegedly felt frustrated by Jessica capitalising off her connections to the Queen, through Prince Harry. Their hostility is believed to have climaxed when she became embroiled in a bitter racism spat on Instagram about her not using her platform to promote Black Lives Matter. The 40-year-old mother of three is now taking time off social media and allowing people of colour to post on her page to educate others about their mistreatment. This isn’t the first online clash to involve Jessica, who in the past was plagued by trolls who left a number of scathing comments about her appearance online only for her to angrily fire back.
Jessica came under fire for an Instagram post of herself in an “elegant” ivory dress last year, which she paired with large jeweled earrings, for the Candian Arts and Fashion Awards last year.
She claimed social media “haters” had made brutal comments about her midriff and insinuated that she was overweight.
The stylist lashed out online: “To all those body shamers from my last post, that is called an oblique. Not a spleen, not a rib, not a hip bone (please learn your anatomy).
“Body shaming is not ok no matter what your size. If I see it anywhere, on any feed, I will call you out.”
Jessica, whose husband Ben is close friends Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, went on to blast those who sought to critique others online.
She wrote: “I normally wouldn’t pay attention to it, but saying something is actually important because addressing it will hopefully make someone think twice before posting such stupidity.

“Tearing people down based on their looks is petty and cowardly behaviour. Thank you and goodnight.”
The post received more than 26,000 likes and comments where fans called her “perfect”, “gorgeous” and “beautiful”.
Some advised against giving her trolls any “attention” because they felt that was what the keyboard warriors “longed for”.
Others supported her plan, including one person who wrote: “Good for you on calling the cowards out… I will never understand why women feel the need to shame other women.”

That same year, she was also verbally attacked for a photograph of her in a bikini where she professed her pride at being able to keep a svelte physique.
She wrote: “I took this down after posting it yesterday. Too many trolls attacking. But I realised today, I don’t care.
“I work hard on every aspect of my life and I’m proud of my body. I’m proud of the work I do. I’m proud that I’m driven.
“I’m proud of it all. And if we can’t be proud of ourselves, then what’s the point. No more apologies.
Jessica previously leapt to the defence of Meghan who had been bullied online for her baby bump while carried Achie Harrison.
She served as unofficial royal wedding planner for the royal family’s celebration in London back in 2018 – her daughter Isabel was a flower girl and twins John and Brian were page boys.
