Here’s What’s Going Down With Drake Bell & Josh Peck

According to TMZ, social media users spent the week running Peck’s comments up after ‘Quiet On Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV’ aired earlier this week. As The Shade Room previously reported, the four-part docuseries explored the “toxic” culture of popular children’s shows between the 1990s and early 2000s.

Additionally, the docuseries shined a spotlight on the previous work culture at Nickelodeon. Furthermore, it was alleged the channel’s producer, Dan Schneider, “sexualized” the child actors. In addition, he was accused of incorporating “racist” jokes into skits and promoting an “uncomfortable work environment.

Furthermore, some actors reportedly felt like they experienced an “abusive” relationship while working with Schneider, per The Shade Room.

Drake Bell even revealed that he was sexually assaulted by Brian Peck, a Nickelodeon dialogue coach, at the age of 15, per The Shade Room.

“I was sleeping on the couch where I usually sleep and… I woke up to him… I opened my eyes, and I woke up, and he was… he was sexually assaulting me,” Bell explained during the docuseries. “….Anytime I had an audition, or anytime I needed to work on dialogue or anything, I somehow ended up back at Brian’s house. And it just got worse, and worse, and worse, and worse, and I was just trapped. I had no way out. The abuse was extensive, and it got pretty brutal.”

Here’s What Prompted Social Media Users To Enter Josh Peck’s Comments

On March 17 — the day the first portion of the documentary aired — Bell’s former ‘Drake & Josh’ co-star took to TikTok to share a video. According to IMDb, the pair starred together on the show between 2004-2007. This followed them also working side by side on ‘The Amanda Show’ between 1999-2002, per IMDb.

TikTok users appeared to believe that Peck’s clip would address the allegations shared in the docuseries. Or the former child actor would speak on Bell’s sexual assault revelation.

However, Peck stayed clear of the series and Bell’s revelation completely. Instead, the TikTok video showed him doing a voiceover.

“If I haven’t talked to you since 2023, take that as a f*****g sign that you don’t exist to me anymore. D**n, you f*****g bug. You got sprayed with the Raid. Bye! See you never,” Peck lipsynchs in the video.

While Instagram user @lamarie002 added, “You taking the time to delete comment instead of taking the time to actually reflect is mind baffling”

Drake Bell Defends Josh Peck

Amid the backlash toward Peck, Bell took to TikTok to share his own video. The actor explained that he noticed the comments toward Peck and wanted to let fans know that right now is a “really emotional time.”

Bell explained that “not everything is put out to the public.” However, he wants fans to know that Peck reached out to him.

“He has reached out to me and it’s been very sensitive but he has reached out to talk with me and help me work through this and has been really great,” Bell said. “And I just wanted to let you guys know that and take it a little easy on him.”
