Chrissy Teigen no longer voices Netflix’s ‘Never Have I Ever’ after an online bullying controversy surfaced regarding direct messages and tweets she sent to model / reality tv personality Courtney Stodden.
Teigen decided to cancel their voice actor commercial with an episode, our sister site Variety reported for the first time, which was due to take place during the second season of the coming-of-age comedy. (The series created by Mindy Kaling often includes voice overs for their characters, played by notable guest actors.)
Stodden recently revealed in a Daily Beast interview that Teigen molested her and her husband online a decade ago, shortly after they married actor Doug Hutchison. (They were 16 years old at the time, while Hutchison was 60 years old.) “Not only would she tweet publicly that I should ‘take a nap’, but privately tell me and me to kill myself,” Stodden said. “Things like ‘I can’t wait for you to die.'”
Mai Teigen apologized publicly on Twitter and wrote: “I am ashamed and sad about who I once was. I was an insecure, attention-grabbing troll. I am ashamed and totally ashamed of my behavior…. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now that you know how sorry I am. “
Inspired by Kaling’s childhood, Never Have I Ever plays newcomer Maitreyi Ramakrishnan as Devi, a first-generation Indian-American teenager who goes through the ups and downs of adolescence. The show was renewed last July and is rumored to premiere sometime in July.
