“When Drake and I talked and he told me what had happened, I was more devastated by that than anything that ever happened in my career thus far,” Schneider said in his apology. “I told him, ‘I’m here for you. What do you need?’ which Drake mentioned in the show last night that we watched last night.”

Fans could not believe their ears as one TikTok user admitted, "I kept waiting for him to say he was joking…"

As another user pointed out, "If you remember in the documentary 'Quiet On Set', one of the female writers explained how he could change his feelings up fast like he has different personalities so he could be lying."

One TikToker simply commented, "uhhh no he’s most definitely evil."

It should be noted that Peck was sentenced to 16 months in prison after he was arrested in August 2003 on 11 sexual abuse charges in relation to Bell's case, however, when he was released, despite being registered as a s-x offender, he still got a job at Disney and worked on the children's show 'The Suite Life Of Zach & Cody'.

The comments continued to pour in as one user asked, "Did you watch 'Quiet On Set'? If not you should. If you have… did you ignore 95% of it?"

Another wrote, "Idk if you’re joking or not but either way, I kind of thought the same thing, but the inappropriateness of the show speaks for itself. Undeniable especially with Ariana Grande scenes." They are referring to some of the clips that feature Ariana Grande attempting to squeeze the juice from a potato or of her getting bathed on iCarly.

Another simply said, "If this is a joke, it's not funny. Someone needs to check YOUR hard drive."
