"Because recent conduct by one of our shows 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," the statement said.
Mulroney said in response that she respected the network's decision and would be stepping away from her professional engagements — including her role as a fashion contributor on Good Morning America — for a time to "reflect, learn and focus on my family."
Her husband also stepped down from his role as an anchor of CTV's ETalk in order to "create a space for a new perspective and a new voice."
Ben, who is the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, said that he hoped his replacement would be "Black, Indigenous, or a person of color who can use this important platform to inspire, lead, and make change."
Ben will continue to contribute to ETalk by hosting red carpets and "taking on other special projects here at Bell Media," he said, and continue to host CTV's Your Morning.
