Zoey 101 stars protest outside Nickelodeon headquarters

Zoey 101 stars protest outside Nickelodeon headquarters

Actress Alexa Nikolas, known for her role as Nicole Bristow on Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” staged a protest outside the company’s headquarters in Burbank, California on Thursday.

The 30-year-old actress said she “didn’t feel safe” during her time on the show.

In an Instagram live stream of the protest, Nikolas states:

“I didn’t feel protected on Nickelodeon as a kid. It also demands that “Nickelodeon start protecting children and not predators.”

Nikolas’ organization, Eat Predators, advocates for survivors of sexual abuse. He expressed deep concern about child stars and is protesting for networks to drop their non-disclosure agreements as it prevents children from receiving help.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the actress apparently calls out “Zoey 101” and “ICarly” creator Daniel Schneider, where she refers to him as “the creator of childhood trauma.”

She says in the video,

“I don’t feel safe with Dan Schneider while working at Nickelodeon.”

Nicole’s protest comes just weeks after the release of iCarly star Jeannette McCurdy’s memoir “I’m Glad My Mom Died.” The book details McCurdy’s experience with alleged abuse by Nickelodeon executives. McCurdy talks about being encouraged to drink when she was underage, receiving spam, and claims the company offered her money to keep quiet if she agreed not to talk about the allegations against someone she refers to as “The Creator.”

Protesters stood outside holding signs bearing the network’s logo that read the words “Sickelodeon” and “Predators.” There were also signs showing images of various Nickelodeon figures, including Schneider and former executives, according to Los Angeles Times.
