Getting `Failed to load resource: net::ERR_INCOMPLETE_CHUNKED_ENCODING` error...

I am using the Netflix Roulette API with my Node js app and I'm getting this error in the browser:

Failed to load resource: net::ERR_INCOMPLETE_CHUNKED_ENCODING

I have console logged the response and successfully get the JSON that I searched for but, nothing displays in the browser.

Here is where I make the call:

var EventEmitter = require("events").EventEmitter;
var https = require("https");
var http = require("http");
var util = require("util");
var apiKey = require('../.ENV');
var unirest = require('unirest');

* An EventEmitter to get actor's Netflix info
* @param actor
* @constructor
function Actor(actor) {


  actorEmitter = this;

  var request = unirest.get("https://community-netflix-roulette.p.mashape.com/api.php?actor=" + actor)
  .header("X-Mashape-Key", "DHmuGLtqcomshyLbBKe5akHeFbN1p1UqyGmjsn7uCNpoDXhBXo")
  .header("Accept", "application/json")
  .end(function(response) {
    var body = "";

    if (response.statusCode !== 200) {
      actorEmitter.emit("error", new Error("There was an error getting titles for " + actor.replace("%20", " ") + ". (" + http.STATUS_CODES[response.statusCode] + ")"));

    response.on('data', function(chunk) {
      body += chunk;
      actorEmitter.emit("data", chunk);

    response.on("end", function() {
      if (response.statusCode === 200) {
        try {
          var actor = JSON.parse(body);
          actorEmitter.emit("end", actor);
        } catch (error) {
          actorEmitter.emit("error", error);
    }).on("error", function(error) {
      actorEmitter.emit("error", error);

util.inherits(Actor, EventEmitter);
module.exports = Actor;
