“ICarly” Creator Speaks Out About Harry Styles As Episode’s “Main Focus”
This Monday, One Direction stars Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson were on set filming an episode of “iCarly.” MTV announced the plot synopsis as:
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.
After reading this, many fans became angry that Harry was being treated as the lead member of 1D and the others had smaller, less important roles. A rumor spread that the “iCarly” producers officially stated that Harry was the main focus of the fanbase, and thus deserved a larger role. One fan (@KatieHoran14) wrote their concerns to the show’s creator Dan Schneider, tweeting:
@DanWarp “Harry is the main focus of the episode, because he’s the main focus of the fanbase” – iCarly producers ….WTF IS THIS???
Taking notice, Dan Schneider made sure to debunk the statement:
@KatieHoran14 No producers of iCarly ever said that. Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. People make things up – a lot.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Are you excited to see the episode?
