Meghan Markle's best friend and rumoured styist Jessica Mulroney has taken to Instagram to defend herself after body shamers attacked her over a recent photo she shared wearing a one-piece swimsuit.
The 39-year-old first posted an image from a recent trip to the Cayman Islands, writing, “Brings ten bathing suits… only gets to wear one on a balcony. All work no play in Cayman. I WILL BE BACK to play in the water with the kiddies.” However, after body shamers started coming at her in the comments, Jessica posted another note reading: “Note to self. Never ever post another picture of myself in a bathing suit. Only wear parkas by the beach.”
“Apparently a picture in a bathing suit is offensive to my career, some followers and my children,” she wrote in the caption, referencing some of the trolls’ criticism. “So guess what… I don’t care. Thank you to my strong followers who get it. Everyone else, get a clue.”
In the comments section of her first post, Mulroney replied to some of the messages, writing to one person: "I'm not selling sex. Check yourself and perhaps educate yourself on women post-babies that want to achieve confidence and career goals. Tone it down."
She also hit back at a commenter who asked "does silicone float easily?" by writing "mind your own floaties" and "the hate is strong in that one. Let's not attack her and perhaps understand why she feels the need to bring other women down."
Mulroney recently took to Instagram to defend the Duchess of Sussex against negative press, writing on Instagram, "When someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out," a graphic Mulroney posted on Instagram last night reads. "When that person is your friend and your family, you call those critics what they truly are. Shame on you, you racist bullies."
