Notoriously anti-Trump model/actress Chrissy Teigen continues to suffer devastating career consequences because of her cyberbullying behavior.

Reports emerged Friday that she’s dropped out of a planned voice role in an upcoming episode of “Never Have I Ever,” a Netflix comedy series set to begin its second season next month.

“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,” a spokesperson for the show told Variety magazine.

While her departure was apparently voluntary, it still points to the gradual deterioration of her career as fallout from her cyberbullying scandal continues to mount.

Teigen’s victim, former child model Courtney Stodden, spoke out about the bullying last year, but only recently did it became a viral news story, thanks in part to the influence of conservative activist Candace Owens.

Less than 24 hours after Owens tweeted about the bullying last month, Teigen finally — over a year after Stodden first informed the world about her treatment — apologized.

“I have tried to connect with Courtney privately but since I publicly fueled all this, I want to also publicly apologize. I’m so sorry, Courtney. I hope you can heal now knowing how deeply sorry I am. And I am so sorry I let you guys down. I will forever work on being better than I was 10 years ago, 1 year ago, 6 months ago,” the abusive celebrity tweeted.

But by fessing up to the abuse and apologizing for it, Teigen set herself up for widespread, societal-wide cancellation.

The department store chain Macy’s pulled her “Cravings” cookware from its website:

The department store Target also pulled her cookware, but “sources connected to Chrissy” (i.e., most likely her friends) told TMZ that the break-up was part of a “mutual” agreement that had been reached months earlier.

Owens didn’t believe them:

Meanwhile, the luxury department store chain Bloomingdale’s walked away from a deal with Teigen and let it be known upfront that it was because of her cyberbullying.

“[W]e’re told that Bloomingdale’s was hours away from signing a contract with the Twitter personality and cookbook author, which would see her host a promotional event for the store, but pulled the plug on Monday because of the toxic press swirling around Teigen,” Page Six reported at the time.

“They pretty much had it together … but had to cancel it,” an insider within Bloomingdale’s (and not just one of Teigen’s friends) confirmed.

Cultural critic Piers Morgan had no sympathy for her. Because of her own history of trying to cancel everybody else, Morgan sarcastically wondered whether she would hold to her own standards by canceling herself:

Amid the initial fallout, the gossip website AceShowBiz claimed via an “unconfirmed source” that Teigen was throwing tantrums, “screaming at the top of her lungs f-bomb type stuff.”

This was never confirmed by any non-gossip website.

According to Outsider magazine, a few companies have stuck with her despite her cyberbullying scandal.

“Amazon is still selling Chrissy Teigen’s cookware line and books. … It’s a similar story at Kohl’s, Barnes & Noble, and Walmart. All of them still sell her products,” the site reported late last month.

The model/actress’s past bullying behavior included telling Stodden to kill herself and “slut-shaming” her.
