Skip to comments.Nickelodeon standing by actor despite his despicable actions
Posted on 09/06/2012 7:12:45 AM PDT by ThinkingBuddha
Nickelodeon, the kids' TV channel, apparently sees no problem with directing children to the Twitter feed of one of its voiceover stars, Jason Biggs - even if Biggs tweets reprehensible things about conservative political women like Janna Ryan, wife of VP candidate Paul Ryan.
It would be difficult to describe Biggs' tweets as anything other than the worst sort of human depravity. You can see them here, but be warned, they are offensive.
Nickelodeon hired Jason Biggs as a voice actor on their new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show and is promoting his Twitter account to the children who follow them. But a growing number of concerned parents and outraged citizens are attempting to stop Biggs in his tracks by calling on Nickelodeon to fire him for his disgusting tweets.
Mr. Biggs recently tweeted despicable and violent things regarding Mrs. Romney, Mrs. Ryan and Christians.
Nickelodeon is encouraging children, especially the young boys likely to be fans of this show, to see Bigg's vile tweets on a daily basis.
So far, Nickelodeon has remained silent on Jason Biggs future employment.

The station that brought you Slime once again lives up to its billing...
The man and his wife have X-Rated twitter feeds and Nickelodean encourages kids to join it.
THAT is the problem here.
Oh my God.
They tweet things like saying his Teen Choice Award nomination means lots of “eigth grader pussy”.!! Tweet about hiring hookers.
Twitpics of sex toys.
What else can you expect from a guy who built his career around shoving Mr. Happy into an apple pie?
Geeze, will these people never let our kids enjoy their innocence?
The problem is and always has been the programming on Nickelodeon - ugly, vulgar, anarchic, disrespectful, endlessly ironic. Not every single show, but far too many.
It’s why we haven’t had cable in fifteen years - not because of the adult shows that are inappropriate for children, but because the children’s shows are not appropriate for children.
Given what messages, overt and subliminal, Nickelodeon sees fit to pour into young minds for hours each day, it’s no surprise that they’d think nothing of this once-removed Twitter feed - it does surprise me that it has not crossed enough parental lines to produce a gale force of objection.
Many of these parents were corrupted in public school too, how many just don’t care anymore?
