Model Olivia Munn reportedly pulled out of her “Today” show appearance at the last minute.
Munn was set to replace another guest last week, but producers reportedly couldn’t promise the model wouldn’t get asked questions regarding some of the recent drama she had been involved in, according to a report published Wednesday by Page Six.
That’s when Munn changed her mind about the interview sources said.
Munn has recently made headlines for a number of different issues, although it was unclear what issue she was worried about for the “Today” interview. Wag, the dog-walking app that Munn is a spokesperson for, has been under scrutiny after multiple dogs have shown up missing or even dead.

Munn also received backlash after slamming a fashion blogging website for criticizing an outfit she wore.
I get not wanting bad press, but you can’t control every aspect of the media. The “Today” show interview would have been a good way for her to explain what has been going on in the Wag app community.
Munn should use every media opportunity she gets to get her message out there and use it as a platform to better explain her thoughts. Avoiding the media looks just as bad as having a bad interview.
