(VIDEO) Kenan Thompson BREAKS SILENCE On ‘Quiet On Set’ Documentary

Kenan Thompson breaks silence on ‘Quiet on Set’ documentary revelations

Kenan Thompson had a “tough” time watching the “Quiet on Set” Nickelodeon documentary.

The “All That” alum addressed the series for the first time on the “Tamron Hall Show” Wednesday, nearly two weeks after the March 17 release made headlines.

Thompson claimed he “wasn’t really aware of a lot of” the documentary’s revelations — which included Drake Bell’s alleged s*xual abuse by voice coach Brian Peck, Dan Schneider’s alleged inappropriate behavior and more — because “these things happened after [he] left.”

The actor urged Nickelodeon to “investigate more.”

However, the 45-year-old urged the network to “investigate more.”

The “Saturday Night Live” star said, “It’s supposed to be a safe place you know? It’s supposed to be a safe place for kids and to hear all about that it’s just like, ‘How dare you?’”

The actor added that his “heart [went] out to anybody that’s been victimized,” as well as their family members.

Thompson “never witnessed” anyone being “victimized” during his time on “Kenan and Kel.

“I think it’s a good thing that the doc is out and is putting things on display that need to be — stories that need to be told for accountability sake,” he said. “But it’s definitely tough to watch because I have fond memories of that place.”

“I have fond memories of my co-stars and stuff like that, so, to hear that they’ve gone through terrible things like that, it’s just, it’s really tough,” Thompson continued.

The “Kenan and Kel” alum went on to directly address allegations about Schneider.

The “Saturday Night Live” star also addressed allegations against producer Dan Schneider.

Thompson still works with Nickelodeon, most recently on “Good Burger 2.”

“Dan wasn’t really on ‘Kenan and Kel’ like that,” he explained. “I mean, he got a ‘created by’ credit but it was a different showrunner, so our worlds weren’t overly overlapping like that outside of ‘All That’ necessarily. … It’s tough for me because I can’t really speak on things that I’ve never witnessed.”

As for when he last spoke to fellow “All That” cast member Amanda Bynes, Thompson said it has been years and he is “rooting for her from afar.”

Bynes, 37, has yet to speak out on “Quiet on Set” — but Josh Peck reacted via Instagram after social media users called him out for not vocally supporting Bell.

“Stories that need to be told for accountability sake,” Thompson said Wednesday.

He has “fond” memories of his childhood on Nickelodeon and wants it to be a “safe space.”

“Children should be protected. Reliving this publicly is incredibly difficult,” Josh, 37, said, while Bell, also 37, assured haters his “Drake & Josh” co-star had reached out to him privately.

Schneider, for his part, issued a “strong apology” in a YouTube video in the wake of s*xism, racism and inappropriate workplace behavior accusations.

The showrunner admitted that “watching over the past two nights was very difficult” and he felt “regret” for his past “embarrassing” behavior.
