‘iCarly’ Reboot Cast Defends Laci Mosley Amid Racist Backlash



Mosley is playing Carly’s (Miranda Cosgrove) best friend/roommate in the upcoming revival show, seemingly replacing Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy).

Some social media users sent Mosley hateful messages online, which led to Paramount+ releasing a statement in which they insisted, “We have recently seen reports of racism towards a member of our ‘iCarly’ cast, and it is not acceptable! Please think about your words, and take time to understand how what you say can impact other people.”

Cosgrove was among those reposting the message.
Writer Franchesca Ramsey defended Mosley on twitter.

Mosley also took to Instagram to share some racist messages she’d been receiving.
