Many fans were wondering why Jennette McCurdy was missing from the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday (March 29) and now she is speaking out on why she was not there.
The 21-year-old actress, who gained stardom on iCarly, was nominated for Favorite TV Actress for her work on the spinoff series Sam & Cat. Her co-star Ariana Grande ended up taking home the award.
“A lot of you guys are asking why I didn’t attend the KCAs…. I wish I could explain everything as thoroughly as I would like to, but unfortunately a simpler explanation is all I can write. I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me,” Jennette said on Twitter. “I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing. I want to thank those of you who have reached out with kind words of support, McCurdians and Arianators alike. No matter who or what you support, I believe in supporting fairness first. If you have done that, thank you.”
“My previous tweet has nothing to do with pics leaked. oh you guys lol,” Jennette added. “It has to do with how nickelodeon treated me. That’s all. Thanks for the love. <3"
