Winning star Daniella Monet is making disturbing claims about her time on Nickelodeon

Jennette McCurdy’s recent comments about her time at Nickelodeon appear to have set off a chain reaction as other child stars open up about their experiences in the industry. In her memoir, I’m Glad My Mother Died, McCurdy claimed that her time on the children’s network was filled with unfair treatment, an attempted cover-up, and abuse at the hands of an unnamed man she calls “the Creator.”

“My personal experience of abusing ‘The Creator’?’ This is a network of shows for kids. Shouldn’t they have some kind of moral compass,” McCurdy wrote (via E! News). “Shouldn’t they at least try to report according to an ethical standard?” The now-retired actor went on to claim, that “The Creator” once gave her a shoulder massage without her consent and that the network later offered her $300,000 not to publicly acknowledge her experience.Now former “Victorious” star Daniella Monet opens up about her experience as a Nickelodeon Star and taps into McCurdy’s feelings.

Daniella Monet criticizes Nickelodeon for sexualized scenes

Daniella Monet has made a bold claim about her time on hit series Victorious, which she says made her feel “sexualized.” Monet, who starred as Trina Vegas, told Insider that Nickelodeon consistently ignored her concerns. “Do I wish certain things didn’t have to be so sexualized? Yes, 100 percent,” she said, referring to a cucumber-eating scene she felt was inappropriate. Monet also shared select words about the show’s creator, Dan Schneider, who she says forced the actors to wear outfits that they felt weren’t “age appropriate.”

In addition to his work on Victorious and iCarly, Schneider also directed production on Zoey 101. Now Alexa Nichols – who portrayed Nicole Bristow on the show – has joined the ranks of stars speaking out against the network. On August 25, Nichols attended a protest against Nickelodeon, urging the network to change its labor practices. “I want to make Nick safe for kids,” Nichols told TMZ. The actor went on to explain that like Monet and Jenette McCurdy, she didn’t feel “protected” during her time with the network.
