The actress, who played Nicole on Nickelodeon's hit show, begins a protest outside Nickelodeon's headquarters, demanding safety for child actors working at the studio today.

AceShowbiz - "Zoey 101" star Alexa Nikolas is taking real action following alleged abuse accusations within Nickelodeon. The actress, who played Nicole on Nickelodeon's hit show, led a protest outside the studio, demanding safety for child actors working at the studio today.

Speaking with TMZ during the protest, Alexa said, "I want to make Nick safe for kids because in my personal experience working on 'Zoey 101' I didn't feel safe."

"I didn't feel like Nickelodeon was protecting me or had my best interest in mind so after hearing so many stories from different Nick stars it just feels like enough is enough and so we're here today trying to make a change at Nickelodeon," she continued.

The actress went on to share that even going back to Nickelodeon's headquarters was a triggering experience for her and it caused her to lose sleep. However, she believes that the company deserves a chance to redeem itself and make things right going forward.

"I don't want to hear one more story of a Nick store having a traumatic experience that's for sure. I want no more NDAs, we're done with NDAs, no more silencing in there, we want to know what is happening in there so we can help if needed," Alexa explained.

She added, "I want them to apologize to all of the Nick stars that suffered in any kind of way, any type of childhood trauma that came from this network I would like them to take accountability and say that they're sorry I think that's simple and we shouldn't have to beg for that in any way."

The protest came after Nickelodeon actress Jennette McCurdy made some damning allegations in her memoir, "I'm Glad My Mom Died". In the book, the former "iCarly" star claimed that she was pressured to drink underage and received unwanted messages from Nickelodeon executives. She also added that she was offered $300k hush money to remain silent on these messages.

Nickelodeon has yet to address Jennette's accusations.
