On the screen, there’s nothing wrong with these shows. It’s the behind-the-scenes that have made people come together in order to expose ICarly‘s creator, Dan Schneider. Many complaints of abusive behavior against Schneider that were filed by members of his staff and has also been noted that for years Schneider had been under a cloud of suspicion over the treatment of some younger stars of his shows.
