Bill Maher Criticizes Nickelodeon Documentary and Calls for Child Protection

In a fiery “New Rules” segment on Friday’s episode of “Real Time,” Bill Maher took aim at the treatment of child stars in Hollywood and the growing influence of wokeness in society.

Maher’s impassioned editorial was prompted by the shocking revelations in the documentary “Quiet on Set,” which exposed the dark underbelly of the Nickelodeon sets where young stars endured degradation akin to “Neverland Ranch with craft services.” Maher expressed disgust at the exploitation of child actors and criticized the industry for turning a blind eye to their suffering.

Drawing parallels to recent controversies surrounding Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s remarks about Disney’s actions, Maher condemned the left’s selective outrage and willingness to overlook abuses if they come from the “wrong party.” He highlighted instances of convicted abusers being rehired to work on children’s series, underscoring the pervasive issue of pedophilia in Hollywood.

Maher also took aim at Instagram moms who exploit their young daughters and criticized the concept of Drag Queen Story Hours, suggesting that they prioritize the desires of adults over the well-being of children.

In a scathing critique of wokeness, Maher argued that the movement has strayed from its liberal roots and veered into extremism. He cautioned against exposing young children to complex gender issues, likening it to entrapment and warning against the dangers of indoctrination.

Throughout the segment, Maher called for a reprieve from the culture wars and urged society to prioritize the well-being of children over ideological agendas. He concluded with a plea for a temporary ceasefire in the ongoing battles, suggesting that perhaps children should be spared from the political fray until after the election.

In addition to his monologue, Maher conducted interviews with fitness guru Jillian Michaels, who warned against the dangers of weight-loss drug Ozempic, and engaged in a panel discussion with historian Jon Meacham and foreign correspondent Jane Ferguson on topics including the New York Trump Trial and partisan politics in newsrooms.

As Maher continues to provoke thought and ignite debate, his commentary serves as a reminder of the complex challenges facing society and the importance of safeguarding the innocence of children amidst the tumult of modern times.
