Filmmaker Jennette McCurdy opens up about harrowing experience at Nickelodeon

American filmmaker Jennette McCurdy's new memoir sheds light on how a man at Nickelodeon

called "The Creator" forced her to drink alcohol when she was underage and gave her massages.

She also gave details about how Nickelodeon offered her $300,000 to stay quiet about her experiences with "The Creator"

Her memoir does not mention the name of The Creator.

However, Dan Schneider was the man behind iCarly, and ViacomCBS investigated him before he departed from Nickelodeon in 2018.

McCurdy said that "The Creator" was a two-faced man who sometimes complimented people and was generous.

The other times he was mean-spirited and terrifying.

Eventually, The Creator faced the consequences of his actions, but McCurdy points out how she was offered hush money that she declined to accept.
