nickelodeon Dan Schneider Scandal Thread

I first heard about this back when Amanda Bynes was having her issues. Back then I used to post on the IMDB forums, a lot of people were talking about Dan abusing Amanda at Nickelodeon.

I remember seeing him in Good Burger and an episode of Kenan and Kel. What a repulsive person!

it would be nice, but he's sitting on piles and piles of money. it took a long time for people to be empowered to speak out against abusive producers in the regular film industry, considering this is children's television it would seem easier, right?

but I imagine it's very hard for a lot of his victims, be them male or female, to relive the trauma of being assaulted by an adult in a position of authority, usually one who their stage parents enabled. I hope the victims who have implied it, those who don't have careers anymore or have abandoned the industry will fully come out against him and at least socially shame him into hell to where he may be blacklisted from the industry…

my best bet would be Alexa, she has the least to lose and is no longer an actress, she has dropped the strongest hints. I really don't want her to have to relive her trauma to come out and help other victims but I would love if she were the one to try and bury him first and the others follow suit. I'm afraid nobody will ever fully come out because of the stigma though. The problem with a lawsuit, as with all lawsuits, is the burden of proof and who has more money to throw around. It's very hard to "prove" anything fully, especially in a court of law, and especially when Schneider is one of the most well known children's show producers in 90s-2010s television. Maybe one day, someone will finally have the courage to sue his ass.

Dan Schneider is the same sort of pedo that Jerry Sandusky was, a guy who knew how to groom everyone else so that they'd accept weird shit like the foot scenes and such. He probably also knows how to hide evidence and how to play off suspicious situations. I can see a lot of his victims having issues with powerful adults in their lives denying it and it leading to them feeling helpless and alone. I have a feeling though that he isn't going to be able to escape this scrutiny for much longer, especially if someone like Ariana Grande came out in support of someone who spoke about it. Even if no one does, I just hope the survivors take time to recover. PTSD sucks ass.:alpacaworry2:

I wonder how many female/lesbian predators exists in the entertainment industry...I predict it will become more prevalent going forward as the trend of "female empowerment" grows.

Think about it...girls are normally suspicious of males only. Females have an easier time to groom these girls without being suspected. It's similar to prostitution rings where you have a "madam" overseeing the girls and introducing them to clients. There's a very dark side to the entertainment industry....everything is interconnected....pornstars, escorts, prostitutes, groupies. Then you have the "fixers"...people who get paid to clean up celebrity histories. Lots of stuff happening behind closed doors. Pretty sure there are these types at Youtube too...

The only ones i can see suing are the one who have nothing to lose and are out of the industry and have been for a while like @notthebees said hes sitting on fat stacks and can possibly hire the best lawyers in Hollywood to shut up those still in the industry

I truly believe Dan Schneider is a creep, if not a predator and I hope all of the actors and actresses in his shows find their peace.

However, I think it's important to remember that until someone comes forward, it's all just rumors - rumors that seem to be rather credible to me at least, but still rumors. I took a look at Alexa Nikolas' instagram profile and I somewhat disagree with her post about "not letting anyone ever take advantage of me ever again" being evidence for her being abused by Dan Schneider. While it's clear that isn't happy with the traits of the character she played in Zoey101 (and probably wasn't in the past as well, since she clarified that she quit the show on her own will and was not fired), I still think it's quite a stretch to link one of her unhappy posts to a rumor with only knowing little about her life before, during and after Zoey101.

Again, I firmly believe that there's something wrong with Dan Schneider, but remember to be careful with interpreting things when nothing has been made public so far.

People like Dan usually put themselves in a position where they cannot be touched. We had a famous case here in the UK with a guy called Jimmy Savile. He was abusing people for decades and was never held accountable because he became friends with certain people. It was only after he died that people spoke out.

Well, not to be rude but this is about Dan. Sure thing there are female abusers but I cant recall one as big as Dan or anyone hinting anything at all?

I was watching an old documentary about child predators and abuse in the entertainment industry and there’s this producer who along with his buddies created some internet series (before YouTube existed) and they mostly hired young boys. They invited them to parties which involved some sexual activities. The producer wasn’t a big name, but before authorities could arrest him, he fled to the UK and started dating a younger man (about 18? I don’t remember) while he was in his 30s. Anyways, the impact on those kids as adults was that they resorted to drugs and alcohol, depression, etc. 

Edit: I found the whole documentary, if anyone wants to watch to get an insight (https://vimeo.com/138965813) (trigger warning just in case because it’s horrid when the guys describe their abuse)

 

Rumors of him being a pedo or being in a pedo ring is still a rumor, but Dan Schneider is a creep for sure, I mean the feet thing is major evidence. Who demands for feet pics and features it in every of his show everytime? I wouldn’t be surprised if he had a collection of kids’ feet pics, or if he sold them to other foot-fetish loving pedos. I think the documentary I stated above showed a part where a photographer sold pictures of kid actors, sometimes with the males having their shirt off online.

There were rumors he invited kids to pool parties too, which sounded too familiar with the documentary above, and also with the Michael Jackson case where child predators groom their target before they proceed with the actual abuse to gain their trust. He just seemed “too-friendly” with the kids he worked with, like it’s weird to see pictures of young girls sitting on Dan’s lap.

None of the celebs from his show actually got bigger in fame besides Ariana Grande, who is just a singer now. Others had small acting gigs, while the rest still remain famous for even being on Dan’s shows because fans still reminisce about them being part of their childhood. Again, it sounded familiar how most of these victims dropped out of the entertainment industry. 

Noah Munck, the guy who played Gibby in iCarly, was on the Official Podcast and when they asked him about it, he said, looking back the feet thing was weird but he didn’t think any more of it then and that he didn’t see Dan in that way; he said he’s clueless about the whole thing if it were true. This makes me to believe that Dan targeted specific victims if allegations were supposedly to be found correct.

Lastly, I always find it odd he never spoke against these allegations or made any comments towards it to defend himself. If these claims were about you, wouldn’t you want to sue for defamation? I mean, being accused as a pedo is a big deal and completely slander if it wasn’t true at all. So that makes it more suspicious when Nick dropped Dan all of a sudden the same year the MeToo movement happened. My conspiracy theory is that maybe he was being secretly investigated and Nick didn’t want to face any repercussions.

Dan's foot fetish is interesting because it is easily perceived as somewhat harmless despite being creepy. This is likely the first step in the grooming process....a "dry run" if you will. Once he finds willing participants for step 1 he then slowly and delicately proceeds to step 2 then 3 and eventually 4.

yeah I see people defending that in YT comments, saying he's harmless because foot fetishism is apparently harmless. which is silly. feet fetishism doenst have to be inherently harmful but it is weird for him to incorporate it so heavily into kids shows.

plus the foot parties and the foot casting is a really weird thing to force onto child actors. that's where it starts to get repulsive. if he were a weird but normal feet fetishist there wouldn't be such a storied and creepy history involving auditions where he forced actors to show their feet. that's suspect, that's creepy, that's going beyond "harmless foot fetishism".

Its also common for sexual abusers to start with small advances and later escalate in order to try and gain the victim's trust, especially in the case of child sexual abusers.

Jfc I always heard the feet fetish jokes but I didn't think much of it because I don't really care about the guy and never connected him to the shows. 

Yikes. Just Yikes. Into the trash  he goes.
