Jennette McCurdy Explains Why She Was a No Show at the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards

By  | 


Even though Sam & Cat won Favorite TV Show at the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday, Jennette McCurdy was a no show for the evening’s festivities — and took to Twitter to explain why she wasn’t there.

While some people thought it had something to do with those racy photos of her that were leaked, she explains that Nickelodeon was the real reason why she decided not to go. Her statement reads:

“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”

She followed that up with these tweets:

Fans were also tweeting at Jennette and asking her why she unfollowed Ariana Grande on Twitter — who just so happened to win Favorite TV Actress as well. Also, this might have something to do with the fact that Sam & Cat is pretty much cancelled by Nickelodeon, but we’re not 100% sure.

Dang, sounds pretty dramatic if you ask us. What do YOU think of this whole situation? Get the conversation started in the comments section!
