Dan Schneider Deals With One Direction Backlash
With news about One Direction guest starring on an upcoming episode of iCarly, many fans were thrilled. But once the plot was released, many were upset that Harry got a lead part. Because of this, rumors ran around that the show’s producers and writers felt that Harry was a fan favorite. This led to some people tweeting Dan Schneider about it, which led to him denying those claims. Here is what he confirmed was not said.
No producers of iCarly ever said that. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. People make things up – a lot.
While he did not explain the plot, he did relieve a lot of fans. Hopefully this will calm some of them down enough to really start preparing for the big episode. As for when the episode will premiere, no date has been released yet. In the mean time for those who have not read the description for the episode, here it is.
Carly returns home sick after a trip and discovers that One Direction has accepted an invitation to perform on their web show. Not long after arriving, bandmate Harry becomes sick and we see Carly doting over him. Realizing Harry is playing sick for the attention, they hatch a plan to get him back in the group by telling him Gibby has become their newest bandmember. Meanwhile, Spencer becomes a personal trainer and gives a bratty girl a makeover.
What do you think about all of this drama? I think that some people take things way too seriously. This is a fiction based show and as long as the band gets along, isn’t that all that matters? I am sure that once we see the episode it may not turn out the way that they suggest. We don’t know anything about it for a fact until it debuts.
