Chrissy Teigen Never Have I Ever appearance dropped: Chrissy Teigen has bowed out of a planned guest appearance on Netflix’s Never Have I Ever just weeks before the show’s second season premiere.

The cookbook author, although her role was never officially announced, was reportedly roped in for a voice role in one episode of the upcoming Season 2 of Netflix’s comedy-drama created by Mindy Kaling. Now, she has opted out in the wake of revelations that she once engaged in online bullying against model and reality TV personality Courtney Stodden.

According to Vulture, Teigen had already taped the part of voice-over narration that the series features for key characters performed by guest actors. Now, however, she has “decided to step away from the guest role,” a spokesperson said adding her part “is expected to be recast.”

Teigen issued a lengthy public apology on May 12 after she was accused of cyberbullying by former reality star Courtney Stodden. She apologised to Stodden last month over allegations of past bullying, including one in which Teigen told the reality star—then a teenager—to “take a dirt nap.” Stodden went on to reveal in an interview with Daily Beast that the Cravings author harassed them online a decade ago after she married actor Doug Hutchison when they were 16 and he was 60. Stodden revealed that Teigen sent them direct messages with cruel taunts such as “I can’t wait for you to die.” Stodden identifies them as nonbinary.

One repeat offender, according to Stodden, was Chrissy Teigen, who repeatedly encouraged them to kill themself: Chrissy Teigen Never Have I Ever appearance dropped
