  • Some of her Instagram followers took issue with the image shared on Monday

Meghan Markle’s best friend Jessica Mulroney has hit back at online trolls who chastised her for sharing a swimsuit snap.

The Canadian celebrity stylist, 39, posted a photograph of herself in a red cut-out bathing suit to Instagram on Monday, while on vacation to the Cayman Islands.

However some of her 339,000 followers took issue with the image, claiming it promoted an unrealistic picture of beauty to the average woman.

Jessica was quick to stand up against the critics, jokingly reminding herself to ‘only wear parkas by the beach’ in a second Instagram post yesterday.

‘Note to self. Never ever post another picture of myself in a bathing suit. Only wear parkas by the beach,’ she said.

The mother-of-three added in the caption: ‘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.’

Her followers and friends were quick to offer their support, with former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe commenting: ‘I’d wear a bathing suit to get the mail if I were you.’

Following several negative comments, Jessica was quick to stand up against the critics, jokingly reminding herself to ‘only wear parkas by the beach’ in a second Instagram post

Another person said: ‘Nothing offensive about a confident woman! Let them hate,’ as a third added: ‘Omg what is wrong with people. You look fantastic! People stop the hate!.’

One social media user said: ‘I really admire how you don’t make any apologies for wanting to show your body off. It’s rare these days for a woman to openly like herself. Refreshing actually.’

Jessica first shared the snap of her posing in the swimsuit earlier on Monday, writing in the caption: ‘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.’ 

Her followers and friends were quick to offer their support and suggested Jessica should ignore the haters

In the photo, Jessica sports a bright red one-piece with a large cutout over her midsection, highlighting her enviably-toned abs. 

Letting her statement garment do the talking, she finished off the ensemble with aviator sunglasses and a high ponytail.

Some social media users questioned the stylist’s photograph, with one person writing: ‘You look amazing. No question. 

‘But how is this helping women (the grand population that you try to hit) feel about themselves if they can simply never achieve the picture of beauty you are selling?’

Another said: ‘There’s no doubt you’re a beautiful smart woman and I like you, but seriously you need to eat some real food.’ 

It isn’t the first time Jessica has hit back at trolls, with the Duchess of Sussex’s friend reposting a daring bikini photo she was forced to delete over negative comments in August.

In the snap, Jessica posed by the pool wearing revealing blue swimwear while enjoying an idyllic holiday in Las Vegas.

But she was forced to take it down after she received ‘too many trolls attacking’ her in the comments.  

In an act of defiance, Jessica uploaded the snap a day later and hit back at the raft of cruel comments – as she claimed she is ‘proud of her body’.

She wrote: ‘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. And if we can’t be proud of ourselves, then what’s the point. No more apologies’.
