Questo articolo contiene discussioni sugli abusi sessuali sui minori.

Si scopre che Jennette McCurdy non è l’unica ex star di Nickelodeon con una storia da raccontare. Nel suo nuovo libro di memorie estremamente popolare, “I’m Glad My Mom Died”, l’ex star di “iCarly” ha affermato che la rete le ha offerto $ 300.000 in “soldi silenziosi” (tramite TheWrap) per tacere sugli abusi che avrebbe subito per mano del suo creatore dello spettacolo, di cui non fa il nome. Ora Alexa Nikolas, che ha recitato in “Zoey 101” al fianco di Jamie Lynn Spears, sta sostenendo le accuse di McCurdy con le sue esperienze.

Now, Nikolas's accusations are about more than just tensions with co-stars.

Alexa Nikolas described Nickelodeon as 'triggering'

Taking her fight right to the source, Alexa Nikolas led in-person protests outside of Nickelodeon's headquarters in Burbank, California. In a video published to TMZ, Nikolas said she "didn't feel safe," during her time at the network and said returning to Nickelodeon HQ was "pretty triggering."

"I want to make Nick safe for kids," Nikolas said. "I didn't feel like Nickelodeon was protecting me or had my best interests in mind." She explained, "After hearing so many different stories from different Nick stars it just feels like enough is enough." Nikolas went on to say that while everyone is capable of redemption, the network has not even released a comment yet. Nikolas would like to see an end to non-disclosure agreements as well as an apology issued to Jeannette McCurdy and "all of us." 

In a video from the protest posted to her own Instagram, Nikolas went into more detail about her experience, specifically calling out Dan Schneider and calling him "the creator of childhood trauma." She said that his very presence on set made her whole body shake, and described an incident in which he and other executives made her cry "in a room alone." Nikolas called for an official investigation into Schneider's Bakery, and name-dropped five men she alleged were "child predators" who worked on set with kids and were convicted on charges of child molestation and rape.
