Chrissy Teigen steps down from 'Never Have I Ever' amid Courtney Stodden controversy

Stodden accused Teigen of bullying them on social media back in 2011.

Chrissy Teigen is exiting a guest voiceover role in Never Have I Ever.

According to a spokesperson for the Netflix show, the model has decided to step away from the role following her admission and apology to bullying Courtney Stodden in 2011. The spokesperson also revealed the role is set to be recast.

Last month, Teigen apologized to Stodden after the TV personality called her out for harassing them on social media over a decade ago, when they were still a teenager. In an interview with the Daily Beast, Stodden claimed the Lip Sync Battle co-host would constantly tell her to take their own life, among other hurtful things.

"She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die", the 26-year-old said of Teigen.

The Cravings author later took to Twitter to address the tweets and publicly apologize, writing:

"Not a lot of people are lucky enough to be held accountable for all their past bullshit in front of the entire world. I’m mortified and sad at who I used to be. I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behavior but that is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel. I have worked so hard to give you guys joy and be beloved and the feeling of letting you down is nearly unbearable, truly."
