Drake Bell Calls Out Ned’s Declassified Stars For Joking About His Molestation Story!

Drake Bell Calls Out Ned’s Declassified Stars For Joking About Abuse Allegations!

Drake Bell slammed three stars of Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide this week — apparently for making jokes about the worst thing that happened to him.

The 37-year-old actor opened up for the first time about the “extensive” and “brutal” sexual abuse he suffered as a child star. He came forward in the documentary Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, revealing he was the previously unnamed victim of former Nickelodeon dialogue coach and convicted child molester Brian Peck. The doc also covered producer Dan Schneider allegedly having inappropriate relationships with and  “sexualizing” other child stars of the network.

While many have voiced their support for Drake bravely coming forward with his story, others have decided to make light of the allegations — specifically, Ned’s Declassified alums Devon Werkheiser, Lindsey Shaw, and Daniel Curtis Lee. The trio hopped on TikTok Live on Monday, where they could be seen laughing and joking about the sexual assault allegations made in the doc. Devon tells Daniel:

“Daniel, we told you never to speak about that. Get back in your hole, Daniel, and give me your holes.”

Devon does appear to regret his words immediately. He then goes on to recognize that none of them should be making fun of this situation, saying:

“Sorry, we shouldn’t joke about this. We really shouldn’t. This is about us. Listen, our set was not like that. And no, it’s f**king awful. The Drake Bell s**t, that’s crazy to hear. That is f**ked. And that never came out, which is really wild. Really wild.”

When a fan asks if they “were in on it,” the 33-year-old actor laughs again and tells everyone he’s “not talking about this anymore.” Though he does add:

“Guys, we can’t joke like this, Jesus. Guys, sometimes humor helps us move through things.”

Jeez. Of course, many people have since slammed Devon, Lindsey, and Daniel, as they felt the comments were not only nasty but dismissive of the abuse their peers on Nickelodeon experienced. Even Drake responded to the situation on X (Twitter). And he understandably was upset about the comments. He tweeted on Tuesday:

“Ned’s Declassless…this is wild…laugh it up guys…laugh it up… ‘Give me your h*les?!!’ Really?!”


Devon got the message loud and clear, though! He later took to social media to apologize to Drake for the “hurt” he caused by inappropriately “speaking about” the documentary — without having ever seen it, as it turns out:

“I was being an idiot today. No way around it. I feel horrible that my dumbass was even speaking about this without seeing it. I watched Quiet on Set tonight and am horrified by the gravity of what Drake and others shared. Truly heartbroken over what my fellow actors went through. I can’t believe they weren’t protected. I’m sorry for compounding any hurt.”


His other two castmates have not issued a public apology to Drake at this time. He also has not publicly reacted to the statement from Devon as of this writing. Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below.
