Chris Savino, creator of the animated Nickelodeon series The Loud House, has been suspended by the network due to sexual harassment allegations.

Not even Nickelodeon is safe!

Per The Hollywood Reporter, we have learned that Chris Savino, creator of The Loud House, has been suspended. The decision comes after multiple women have come forward accusing Savino of “sexual harassment, unwanted advances, inappropriate behavior as well as threats of blacklisting female colleagues who were no longer in consensual relationships with him.”

Though Nickelodeon has not yet publicly confirmed the suspension, Bojack Horseman director Anne Walker Ferrell took to Twitter to applaud the decision. Ferrell claims to have been harassed by Savino 15 years ago and is happy to see justice finally being brought to him.

Ever since hitting the TV screens last year, The Loud House has been a hit for the Nickelodeon network. The series stars a little boy named Lincoln Loud, the only son in a family full of 11 kids.  Critics have been kind on the show due to its diverse cast of characters and witty humor.

Official synopsis for The Loud House:

"“The Loud House. Lincoln Loud is an eleven-year-old boy who lives with ten sisters. With the help of his right-hand man Clyde, Lincoln finds new ways to survive in such a large family every day.”"
