7 Former Nickelodeon Stars Who Totally Shaded the Network
Nickelodeon is a completely kid-friendly network, but it’s definitely NOT free from drama and scandals. For starters, there are way more Nick on-screen BFFs that totally hated each other in reality than you’d imagine. Plus, we can’t forget about the station’s former stars who went from innocent child actors to filming sex scenes for movies. Yep…
But no matter how hard actors and actress work to break free from their Nickelodeon personas, they have to remember one thing — the network got them to the place they are today. (We’re talking to you, Ariana Grande! So when your favorite Nick celebs decide one day that they’re ~too cool~ for the network and actually throw shade at it, we cant help but shake our heads. Scroll through our list below and see which popular stars dissed Nick, their co-stars and their TV shows.
Jennette was on not one, but two Nickelodeon shows, yet she is still NOT a fan of the network. After starring on iCarly for five years, the actress landed a spin-off series called Sam & Cat with Ariana Grande. While filming that series, she revealed that she had issues with the network, how they treated her and the fact that her co-star reportedly made more money than her. "A lot of you guys are asking why I didn't attend the KCAs...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," she wrote on an extended Twitter post in 2014.
"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 added. The 23-year-old actress later tweeted that she skipped the event because of Nickelodeon and revealed that is what the tweet was all about. Yikes.
