So this dude was the creator and producer for Drake & Josh, iCarly, Key and Peele, the Amanda Bynes Show, and a few other hit Nickelodeon shows. It was announced yesterday that Nickelodeon failed to renew his contract and allegedly paid him out $7 million. Some of the most damming rumors include child stars as big as Amanda Bynes (this is beginning to make sense now..), Jamie Lynn Spears (yup, remember when she got pregnant and wouldn't release the name of the father?), and Arianna Grande. While everything is still conjecture based at this time, this could turn out to be Hollywood's most egregious scandal ever, far surpassing Weinstein in scope and repugnance.
Much of the mainstream media has yet to report on his allegations, which supposedly have been floating around for nearly a decade. His departure from Nickelodeon is especially suspicious. Until yesterday, Schneider was the producer of two hit Nickelodeon shows and was given a lifetime achievement award by the company just four years ago.
For now, I'll post some of the "sources" I'm referencing now. Hopefully it's just a matter of time before the likes of NYT or the Washington Post pick up on the story.
-twitter thread compiling some of the allegations as well as various creepy/sexual scenes in his shows. Notable: Jennette McCurdy's (iCarly girl) vine calling Schneider out, Jamie Lynn Spears, and Amanda Bynes' puzzling online rants in recent years indirectly referencing Schneider, Schneider's foot fetish
-good article outlining some of the allegations
I'll leave it at that for now. Surprisingly there is little content floating around, even on Reddit. I wish NSG was more active these days, but NS is basically the only online forum I regularly post in so here we are.
