Meghan Markle's friend Jessica Mulroney fires back at body shamers after posting swimsuit photo


Meghan Markles close friend, Jessica Mulroney, has posted the perfect response on her Instagram account after trolls shamed a swimsuit picture she posted earlier in the week.

The picture showed her posing in a red one-piece swimsuit during a trip to the Cayman Islands.

The celebrity stylist wrote: “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. So guess what ... I don’t care. Thank you to my strong followers who get it. Everyone else, get a clue.”

The post has attracted thousands of likes and comments, one of which came from the duchess’s former Suits co-star, Sarah Rafferty, who said: “So ummmm, damn, can you just text them to me then? Cuz #goals.”

Mulroney had posted the swimsuit picture alongside the caption: “Brings 10 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.”

She completed her beach-ready look with a high, wavy ponytail and aviator sunglasses.

Like Meghan, Mulroney is no stranger to internet trolls. The host of Netflix wedding planning show, I Do Redo also got a hard time after sharing a different bikini shot with her followers in August

The picture showed her looking out over an infinity swimming pool wearing an electric blue bikini.

She revealed she deleted the post because of the hate she received, but later decided to re-post it in a bid to stick it to the trolls.

In the caption she said: “I took this down after posting it yesterday. Too many trolls attacking. But I realized 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.”

She signed off the post with an inspirational piece of advice: “And if we can’t be proud of ourselves, then what’s the point. No more apologies.”

The Canadian stylist doesn’t just stand up for herself — she stands up for her friends, too. She recently used her platform of 340,000 followers to defend Meghan after she and Prince Harry received public backlash for taking a private jet to fly to the South of France.

She posted “when someone faces unfair criticism, you call it out” in an Instagram post.

“When that person is your friend and your family, you call those critics what they truly are. Shame on you, you racist bullies. Three years of undeserved hate and abuse. It’s enough.”
