SHORTLY after Chrissy Teigen called herself a member of “cancel club,” it’s been revealed Gigi Hadid replaced her in Season 2 of Netflix’s Never Have I Ever.
The 35-year-old model was removed from the role in the wake of her “bullying” scandal.
The first season of the teen series featured a surprise narration from Andy Samberg, who did voiceover for Ben (Jaren Lewison), one of Devi’s (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) love interests.
Never Have I Ever’s second season was set to feature another surprise narration, this time by Chrissy for Devi’s other love interest, Paxton (Darren Barnet), but she was dropped from the gig.
Instead, it was revealed when the whole new season came out on Thursday that she was replaced by another model – Gigi.
The 26-year-old new mom, who shares daughter Khai with love Zayn Malik, took over the voiceover in episode three, where she narrates the Paxton-focused storyline about his hardships, including being too good-looking.
John Legend's wife Chrissy found herself at the center of a bullying scandal earlier this year, which has cost her a number of sponsorship deals and jobs.
Courtney Stodden – who is non-binary and prefers "they" pronouns – claimed in an interview that the model would send horrific tweets and DMs, including comments that appeared to encourage suicide.
Chrissy saw a downfall in her career after these comments came out, as well as from some of her other "bullying" tweets toward celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Farrah Abraham, which also resurfaced.
The model's kitchenware has since been removed from Target's website, as well as Macy’s and Bloomingdales, and Chrissy decided to quit Safely, her home cleaning brand with Kris Jenner, in June 2021.
That month, it was also revealed she was exiting Netflix's Never Have I Ever.
A show spokesperson said in a statement at the time: "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.
"The role is expected to be recast."
Chrissy wrote on Wednesday that “cancel club” has made her “so depressed."
The 35-year-old model added she “cannot get off the couch” following her bullying scandal.
Chrissy wrote on Wednesday: “Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot.
“Only a few understand it and it’s impossible to know til you’re in it.
“And it’s hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you’ve clearly done something wrong.”
