Chrissy Teigen is a model and television personality who recently got an opportunity to do a voice-over in a Netflix original series Never Have I Ever.

The incident in question about Teigen bullying Courtney Stodden goes back a decade after Stodden married actor Doug Hutchison when they were 16, and he was 60. Stodden, in an interview, revealed that Teigen sent them direct messages with offensive speech such as, “I can’t wait for you to die.”
The show Never Have I Ever storyline 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 would be re-cast.
On the professional front, Chrissy Teigen gave a voice-over to Hailey Posey’s character in the animated sci-fi film The Mitchells vs The Machines.
