Gigi Hadid Replaces Chrissy Teigen on ‘Never Have I Ever’ Following Bullying Scandal
The runway star has been officially announced to replace the cookbook author following backlash over past bullying, serving as a new narrator for the Netflix series.
AceShowbiz -New mum Gigi Hadid has replaced Chrissy Teigen as a narrator on the second season of hit Netflix show “Never Have I Ever“.
Teigen was billed to voice an episode of the series based on the character Paxton, but she stepped down last month (Jun21) amid a controversy surrounding bullying texts she once sent to celebrity Courtney Stodden when the model was a teenager.
“Chrissy Teigen has decided to step away from a guest voiceover role in one episode of the upcoming second season of Never Have I Ever,” a spokesperson for the show said at the time. “The role is expected to be recast.”
Netflix bosses kept the new narrator a secret until the show’s release on Thursday (15May21) and now it has been confirmed Gigi is the voice in the second season’s third episode, as she discusses Paxton’s struggles with heartache.
Chrissy Teigen has since apologized, saying she has personally reached out to Courtney. However, Courtney found it hard to believe Chrissy’s words as Courtney was blocked by Chrissy on Twitter instead.
“I accept her apology and forgive her. But the truth remains the same, I have never heard from her or her camp in private. In fact, she blocked me on Twitter. All of me wants to believe this is a sincere apology, but it feels like a public attempt to save her partnerships with Target and other brands who are seeing her ‘wokeness’ is a broken record. (sic)”
