Gigi Hadid has replaced Chrissy Teigen on the Netflix series Never Have I Ever, following Teigen’s fall from grace over her recent cyber-bullying scandal.
Teigen was to have a guest role as a voiceover narrator in a second season episode of Never Have I Ever but she and the series parted ways after she admitted to bullying people including TV personality Courtney Stodden on Twitter.
Hadid, 26, was revealed to be Teigen’s replacement when the second season of the comedy series dropped on Netflix this week. Hadid’s involvement was a closely guarded secret before the premiere.
Teigen said of her past bullying behaviour, “I was an insecure, attention seeking troll. I am ashamed and completely embarrassed at my behaviour but that … is nothing compared to how I made Courtney feel.”
A spokesperson for Never Have I Ever said earlier this summer that Teigen “has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever”.
“The role is expected to be recast,” the rep added.
In recent days, Teigen shared a lengthy note detailing her discomfort in being part of the “cancel club.”
“Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know til you’re in it,” the supermodel-turned-cookbook author wrote. “And it’s hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning. But there never is here anyhow.”
