Chrissy Teigen has stepped away from her role in Netflix’s Never Have I Ever after controversy struck about her bullying Courtney Stodden online in the past.
Teigen was set to be featured in a guest voiceover role for Mindy Kaling’s coming-of-age comedy series. However, a spokesperson for the show has said that the role is expected to be recast.
According to TODAY, Never Have I Ever is focused on a first-generation Indian American teenage girl navigating high school while dealing with the loss of her father. The series features voice-over narration for key characters performed by guest actors.
This news comes after The Daily Beast published an interview with Courtney Stodden where they revealed Teigen harassed them online a decade ago after Stodden married actor Doug Hutchison. Stodden was 16 and Hutchinson was 60 at the time of their marriage.
On May 12, Teigen posted a lengthy public apology on Twitter where she said, “Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bulls— in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll…”
The entire apology spans four tweets.
The Lip Sync Battle host has not tweeted since her apology and has not commented on her Never Have I Ever exit.
