Not cool! Duchess Meghan‘s BFF Jessica Mulroney responded after getting body-shamed for sharing a bikini photo. The stylist shared a stunning snap of herself in a red one-piece during a work trip to the Cayman Islands on November 4, but was met with rude comments.
The 39-year-old responded to all the criticism with a separate written post on Instagram that read: “Note to self. Never ever post another picture of myself in a bathing suit. Only wear parkas by the beach.”
She further explained her feelings toward the eye-rolling comments she received in a lengthy caption. “Apparently a picture in a bathing suit is offensive to my career, some followers, the charities I work with and of course, my children,” she cheekily wrote. “So guess what … I don’t care. Thank you to my strong followers who get it. Everyone else, get a clue.”
Jessica shares three children — twins John and Brian and daughter Isabel — with her husband, Ben Mulroney. She frequently posts workout videos on her feed and has been working hard to get her body in tip-top shape … and it shows.
The brunette beauty’s comments were flooded with support from her famous pals and fans alike. “I’d wear a bathing suit to get the mail if I were you,” Bachelor Nation alum Kaitlyn Bristowe wrote. “I say you put on a string bikini next, babe,” Tracy Moore quipped.
One of her followers echoed, “Umm what? That pic [sic] was beautiful. Nothing offensive about it.” Someone else added, “People are jealous. No need to read shaming comments! You look great and work hard for it.” Another person encouraged, “You look amazing, be proud of yourself and all your work!”
After posting her original bikini photo, Jessica went on a clap back spree defending her right to wear a bathing suit after having kids — which seems fairly obvious. “Does silicone float easily? If so, no need for your kids to wear life jackets. The silicone on your chest should do that job just fine for them,” a troll wrote.
“The hate is strong in that one,” the mom-of-three snapped back. “Let’s not attack her and perhaps understand why she feels the need to bring other women down.”
“You look amazing. No question. But how is this helping women … feel about themselves if they can simply never achieve the picture of beauty you are selling?” someone questioned.
“I’m not selling sex,” Jessica pointed out. “Check yourself and perhaps educate yourself on women post-babies that want to achieve confidence and career goals. Tone it down.”
Jessica looks fab and won’t let the haters bring her down!
