Recently, A Black Lady Sketch Show star Laci Mosley, who will play Carly’s (Cosgrove) friends in the series, spoke about about attacks she has received for playing Laci, who fans have surmised is replacing Jennette McCurdy’s character (and Carly’s best friend) Sam from the original series.
“I’m not replacing Sam. Jennette McCurdy is a very wonderful person,” she said in part. I’ve never met her, but it’s no shade. Get the f— out of my comments with this f—ing racist a— bulls—. You will be blocked and you will never see me again, honey,” she said in the video.
The iCarly team, including Nickelodeon’s parent company, ViacomCBS, released statements condemning what was taking place.
“iCarly are proud to be racially diverse, not only in our crew but our cast. We have recently seen reports of racism towards a member of our iCarly cast, and it is not acceptable,” the series posted online. “Please think about your words, and take time to understand how what you say can impact other people.”
iCarly also put on their Twitter page a statement about upholding anti-bullying and no tolerance of racism.
“Our company is proud to uphold the values of inclusivity and collaboration, where we work to embrace new and diverse voices, act with care and work together,” stated the series. “The upcoming Paramount+ iCarly series is one of many examples of this commitment, and we support our entire cast and crew and stand against all instances of hate and racism.”
