Kenan Thompson who is famous for his role in the All That reacted to the allegations on Nickelodeon show The Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV. This Discovery docuseries explores the  allegations of sexual abuse, racism and sexism the network’s iconic shows. During a March 27 appearance on Tamron Hall Thompson shared his appreciation towards the victims for opening up about their stories. Let’s check out the entire details of this story.

Kenan Thompson said his heart goes out to anybody that’s been victimized

The actor said in the event that his,  “heart goes out to anybody that’s been victimized or their families.”

“I think it’s a good thing that the doc is out and is putting things on display that need to be told for accountability sake,” Thompson shared. “But it’s definitely tough to watch because I have fond memories of that place.”

However, the allegations that were made on producer Dan Schneider “happened after I left” the network in the early aughts.

“It’s tough for me because I can’t really speak on things that I’ve never witnessed,” he continues. “Dan wasn’t really on Kenan and Kel like that. He got a ‘created by’ credit but it was a different showrunner, so our worlds weren’t overly overlapping like that outside of All That necessarily.” 

Moreover, the comedian believes there should be further investigation into the allegations. As he puts in “It’s supposed to be a safe place, you know? It’s supposed to be a safe place for kids and to hear all about that it’s just like, ‘How dare you?’”

Although Thompson did not participate in Quiet on Set, other Nickelodeon stars such as All That costar Katrina Johnson and Drake & Josh’s Drake Bell came forward with their allegations.

Schneider also released a 19-minute video addressing the allegations against him on his YouTube channel March 19,”Watching over the past two nights was very difficult for me, Facing my past behaviors, some of which are embarrassing and that I regret, and I definitely owe some people a pretty strong apology.”

He continues,”I could be cocky and definitely overambitious and sometimes just straight up rude and obnoxious and I am so sorry that I ever was. When I watched the show, I could see the hurt in some people’s eyes and it made me feel awful and regretful and sorry.”
