Chrissy Teigen dropped out of a role for Netflix’s “Never Have I Ever” weeks after she was called out by Courtney Stodden for past cyberbullying.
A spokesperson for the show told Fox News that Teigen has moved away from a guest voiceover role. She was scheduled to appear in an episode of Season 2 of the coming-of-age drama Netflix, created by Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher.
The role should now be recast, the spokesperson said. Representatives for Teigen did not immediately return Fox News’ requests for comment.

“Never Have I Ever” follows an Indo-American teenager who faces pressure from high school.
Teigen’s exit from the series comes amid a period of silence for the former Swimsuit Illustrated model. Known for her engaging social media presence, Teigen has been unusually quiet in recent weeks since Stodden accused her of cyberbullying.
Most notably, the star, 35, allegedly encouraged the singer to take his own life and suggested that Lindsay Lohan hurt yourself physically out of jealousy. The ordeal produced a lot of backlash for the once-beloved star, which many consider ironic given his tendency to criticize others for problematic behavior.

Her most recent Twitter post came on May 12 when she publicly apologized to Stodden, 26, saying she was “lucky” to have been held responsible. She admitted to being “mortified” by her past behavior and vowed that she would “always work to be better.”
Stodden did not find Teigen’s comments to be very genuine, saying the apology sounded like “a public attempt to salvage its partnerships” with various brands.
Teigen’s Instagram also went dark, with her last post being posted on May 11, just a day before he apologized to Stodden on Twitter.
In the post, Teigen shared a page from his cookbook with a “Cozy Classic Red Lentil Soup” recipe. She announced in the caption that she would be doing the dish live this afternoon, which was likely her last appearance on the app.

Although her social media engagement has stalled, Teigen was spotted in public earlier this week for the first time since her social media behavior came to light. The author of the cookbook “Cravings” was seen smiling and laughing during a FaceTime call. Exclusive photos obtained by Page Six show Teigen leaving a business meeting and heading back to his car alone with his phone in hand. In some photos, Teigen wears a cheetah-print mask to cover his nose and mouth.
