Chrissy Teigen Exits Guest-Star Role On Netflix’s ‘Never Have I Ever’ Amid Cyberbullying Scandal
Chrissy Teigen won’t be lending her voice in Netflix’s Never Have I Ever series after all.
The TV personality and model previously secured a guest voiceover role for the sophomore season of Mindy Kaling’s show but has now bowed out, an insider told E! News.
While she hasn’t commented on the decision, it comes just weeks after she apologized to TV personality Courtney Stodden for bullying her on Twitter in 2011. At the time, Courtney Stodden was 16 and had just gotten engaged to actor Doug Hutchison, who was 50 years old.
Courtney Stodden, who identifies as nonbinary and uses “them” and “they” pronouns, called out Chrissy Teigen in an interview with The Daily Beast earlier this year and said she sent them bullying messages amid her controversial engagement.
“[Chrissy Teigen] wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die…'”
“People came out of the woodwork to beat up on a kid because she was in a situation that she shouldn’t have been in. There were a lot of celebrities acting like playground bullies. Some of the worst treatment I got was from women, and we’re not going to get anywhere if we keep holding each other back.”
Chrissy Teigen later apologized to Courtney, calling herself an “insecure troll.”
While Courtney accepted the apology, they appeared hesitant as they pointed out that Chrissy had them blocked on Twitter, and seemingly only apologized because she wanted to keep her deals with retailers like Target.
Since Courtney blasted Chrissy, Chrissy’s cookware line Cravings by Chrissy Teigen has been pulled from Macy’s and Target’s websites. It’s not clear if it’s connected to the cyberbullying scandal.
