Miranda Cosgrove and the iCarly account have shared a message condemning racism in the fandom on Sunday, after new star Laci Mosley was made aware of hurtful TikToks directed at her. “iCarly are proud to be racially diverse, not only in our crew but in our cast,” the statement reads. “We have recently seen reports of racism towards a member of our iCarly cast, and it is not acceptable!” Mosley plays Harper in the new revival for Paramount+, which was just announced on May 14. Fans noticed that several beloved characters, like Sam, would not be returning alongside Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor, and Nathan Kress, prompting many to take it out on Mosley. “My sister telling me that she saw several videos about me on TikTok being racist as fuck broke my heart.” Mosley tweeted early on Sunday. “Me and my sister are 13 years apart she’s like my child and her having to see this shit broke me. I don’t know what’s wrong with you people but you need to seek help.” Via Vulture.
I genuinely feel disgusted that Black actresses have to go through this kind of thing.
The iCarly reboot premieres on Paramount streaming service June 17th. Tune in to support the Laci and the cast.
