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?

    Chrissy seems so immature to me and I think we’re the same age? She skipped the “grow up” stage.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I think her self-admitted substance abuse problem has been around longer, and is currently more of a problem than we were previously told.

      • Impress says:

        @NOTSOSOCIALBUTTERFLY ummm please elaborate i am dying to hear this

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        She said she had an alcohol abuse issue. In her interviews she said the drinking made her less productive, feel not great the next day and she would do and say things she was later embarrassed over.
        I have complete respect for alcoholics that work towards sobriety. But this just sounds like more Chrissy needing something to put her in the spotlight.

  2. milliemollie says:

    This is what she deserves. I will also never forget that she called then nine year old Quvenzhane Wallis the c-word.
    She’s a mostly talentless asshole that wouldn’t have a career after her modeling days if she hadn’t married a famous man. I hope she’ll disappear for good, but I suspect she’ll somehow make a comeback

    • oliphant500 says:

      she called a 9 year old that??!?! how did her career not end when that happened?!!? what a POS.

    • Yonati says:

      @milliemollie – the c-word is C U Next Tuesday. Teigen called QW “cocky” which is stupid and mean but it is NOT “the c-word”

    • Haylie says:

      Ok, she didn’t call Quevenzhane the c word. That was The Onion.

      She did call her a brat in response to that tweet from The Onion, so…

      • milliemollie says:

        Oh, then my memory failed me. I’m sorry! I guess I confused her reponse to the tweet as her own tweet.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        The onion apologized. Chrissy never did.
        She also made a tweet which summed up that she didn’t like the talented little girl, but can’t mock her because it’s frowned upon to bully a child. But she let it be known she very much wanted to have at a 9 Year Old!

    • pollyv says:

      Chrissy did not call her a c**t, the Onion did. I think Chrissy called her cocky. Yes Chrissy can be an asshole but we don’t need to make her worse than she is.

  3. Mac says:

    On a positive note, Never Ever Have I is a smart, witty, and delightful comedy. I highly recommend binging it.

    • Kate says:

      I’ll join this thread! I really enjoyed the first season!

    • Anne Call says:

      First season had John McEnroe doing most of the voice over. He was hilarious but a raging as*hole in his day. He’s lucky there was no social media in the 70’s/80’s.

  4. Lawcatb says:

    In People it said the voice over had already been recorded, which makes the whole “Chrissy decided to drop out” narrative even more far fetched.

  5. ThatgirlThere says:

    I never paid that much attention to her especially after she picked on Quvenzhane Wallis, but man her fillers are distracting.

    • Lola says:

      Her fillers are actually painful to look at. I’m not against injectables but why would you swell your face up to twice the size to look like a beach ball? She looks like she’s having a never-ending severe allergic reaction. Her face was even fuller than average to start with so why did she feel the need to blow it up to that extreme?

  6. cassandra says:

    I think it’s notable that she doesn’t have a single celebrity defender. Even Ellen had people speaking up for her at first.

    She got dropped from that cleaning brand she was promoting with Kris Jenner too. When you’re too controversial for the Kardashians….yikes

    • Sunny says:

      She’s all over the Safely website still. Maybe bc she co-founded it?

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      She has defenders. Their silence waiting for this to be forgotten is a show of support for Chrissy. Even Mindy allowing Chrissy to announce this is a show of support.

      This adult goes out of her way to troll children and victims of abuse not just publicly, but privately. She lies about apologizing privately and makes the sarcastic public apology all about her.

      Given how long this has gone on and her, legend’s and her endorsements social media comments are still trashing her I’d say this has gained some traction.

      But she won’t learn.
      And wow Mindy. Not speaking out against bullying and teen suicide? She could have announced the guest appearance was canceled and then dropped info for help on victims of teen bullying and depression.

  7. GG says:

    I agree that it was short sighted on Mindy’s part to allow Chrissy to say she dropped out or removed herself from the role. Mindy should have taken a much firmer stance on this and it’s disappointing that she did not.

  8. KNy says:

    I still can’t get over how an adult person targets someone who was essentially sex trafficked out to a much older man by their own mother and tells them to kill themself. And from a position of power, as well. Chrissy was rich and famous and yet still so arrogant to think that there were no consequences to this behavior.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      +1.Had it not been for the cultural reckoning with misogynistic abuse, she would have kept ignoring it and would have gotten away with it completely. Girls and women already get more than enough violence incited against them by the world’s religious conservatives and mras, and more than enough excuses for it. It doesn’t need to be coming from Chrissy Teigan or others on the left too.

  9. DuchessL says:

    What’s happening with the cleaning peoducts she’s doing with kris jenner?

  10. Anonymous says:

    I’m wondering why the other celebrities have faced no consequences. Per Stodden, Joy Behar was awful to her. No one is calling for her removal from The View. Don’t misunderstand me, I’m all for CT getting cancelled. I’m just curious why she is the only one.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      Because Chrissy Teigan’s violent comments make those other people’s comments look not so bad in a lot of people’s minds. Victim-blaming misogynists still enjoy a special level of protection when it comes to dehumanizing slurs, unfortunately. People don’t connect the dots between the suffering and their words.

    • Maria says:

      They were all awful but Teigen is the only one who had a campaign telling Stodden to commit suicide in personal messages for several years. And she had many many other horrible problematic tweets as well that were in some cases frightening.
      They should all be taken to task for this, but Teigen behaved like a violent psychopath.

    The Tonight Show posted a skit with her in it on YT a few days ago. I couldn’t believe it. Not watching that show ever again. Too bad, I like Fallon.
