Chrissy Teigen drops out of her guest-voiceover gig on Never Have I Ever

It kind of seems like Chrissy Teigen and her corporate sponsors are taking a wait-and-see approach to Chrissy’s latest crap. Weeks ago, Courtney Stodden told the Daily Beast that Chrissy used to send DMs to Stodden encouraging Stodden to “kill yourself.” Chrissy gave a half-assed apology and admitted the obvious, which is that she’s an insecure, attention-seeking troll. Some of her sponsors/endorsement deals have hit pause and Stodden actually said that Teigen should lose her sponsors too. Well, that’s not all. Chrissy and Mindy Kaling have been friendly for years – Mindy helped Chrissy promote her cookbook, and Mindy had Chrissy on The Mindy Project too. Chrissy was supposed to do a guest-voiceover on Never Have I Ever, the Netflix series Mindy executive produces. Chrissy has now “stepped down” from that gig.

Chrissy Teigen has bowed out of a planned voice role in the Netflix comedy “Never Have I Ever” in the wake of revelations that she once engaged in online bullying against model and reality TV personality Courtney Stodden.

Teigen opted to drop out of a planned voice role in one episode of the upcoming Season 2 of the Netflix coming of age comedy from Mindy Kaling. The series features voice-over narration for key characters performed by guest actors.

“Never Have I Ever” revolves around a first-generation Indian American teenage girl navigating high school while dealing with the loss of her father. A spokesman for the show said the role is expected to be recast.

Teigen issued a public apology on May 12 after Stodden revealed in an interview with Daily Beast that Teigen harassed them online a decade ago after Stodden 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.”

It would have been better (from my perspective) if Mindy had been the one announcing that the role is no longer available to Teigen. I know Mindy probably thinks she’s just helping Chrissy save face and act like it was her (Chrissy’s) decision, but… it should have been seen as Mindy’s decision. This isn’t some little f–k up which will blow over in a second. Chrissy, as an adult, directly harassed and encouraged a teenager to die. There really isn’t going to be a comeback for this one?
