Jessica Mulroney’s show I Do, Redo has been pulled by CTV, which says she “conflicts with our commitment to diversity and equality.”
Lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter revealed Jessica used her white privilege to try to damage her career.
Jessica Mulroney’s show I Do, Redo has been pulled by CTV in the wake of her being called out for using her “textbook white privilege” to try to damage fashion and lifestyle writer Sasha Exeter’s career.
Sasha spoke out about her experience with Jessica in an Instagram video, explaining that the professional stylist (who is best known for working with Meghan Markle) and TV host had basically threatened her career in response to Sasha posting a call to action asking her peers—like Jessica—to use their platforms to support the fight for racial justice.
In a statement on Twitter, CTV wrote, “Bell Media and CTV encourages our entire team including our on-air talent to practice respect, inclusivity, and allyship as we pledge to work better and more openly to listen to and amplify Black voices, and not to minimize them. Because recent conduct by one of our show’s 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.”

Jessica has posted a public apology and responded to CTV’s decision in an Instagram statement, saying, “The events that have transpired over the last few days have made it clear that I have work to do. I realize more than ever how being a white, privileged woman has put me far ahead of so many and in particular those in the Black community. And while I can’t change the past, I can do my part to do better in the future. I respect the decision of CTV and have decided to step away from my professional engagements at this time. I’m going to take this time to reflect, learn, and focus on my family.”
Netflix has plans to release I Do Redo in America and has not commented on whether the show will still air on the platform.
