Nickelodeon is facing the ire of the actress Daniella Monet as the owners did not pay attention to her concerns about the show.
Nickelodeon refused to delete the ‘Sexualized’ ‘Victorious’ scene from the show. 33-year-old Daniella Monet was a part of the show from 2010 to 2013.
During an interview with ‘Insider,’ she revealed that in the show, she was asked to wear skimpier clothes. Also, there was an objectionable scene in the show where she was applying lip gloss while eating a pickle. She found it sexualized and conveyed her concerns to Nickelodeon. But Nickelodeon said no to delete this ‘Sexualized’ ‘Victorious’ scene, and the scene was aired.
The show as a whole was a funny and silly show, Daniella Monet says. But there were certain scenes which were not good in taste. She was sexualized, which she never wanted to be.
Monet also slammed Dan Schneider, the creator of ‘Victorious,’ for being a supporter of male domination. The 56-year-old writer has given many hit shows, but he came under criticism from the actress.
This is not the first time Dan Schneider is facing criticism. Earlier, he faced allegations of showing inappropriate behavior towards females. He is alleged to get clicked having young actresses in his lap.
30-year-old actress Alexa Nikolas has also criticized Nickelodeon for not providing a safe environment to work in, and she told clearly that while working with Dan, she feels unsafe.
After these allegations, people protested outside Nickelodeon’s animation studio located in Burbank and Nikolas. They showed their concern about the safety of children working with the network.
The 30-year-old actress Jennette McCurdy accused the network of forcing her to have alcohol while wearing a bikini at a shoot. Jennette was not an adult at that time. She also accused Nickelodeon of offering her $300,000 for staying quiet about the things that happened to her while working for the network.
Nickelodeon’s former president, Russell Hicks, has spoken on the matter of Dan Schneider. He indirectly refused all the charges and said every content is thoroughly checked before approval is given.
