Jennette McCurdy of "Sam & Cat" has been called a role model but she is now speaking out and rejecting that role. She doesn't want to be called one at all. On Friday, Fox News shared about her big online rant that just sent down. She went to her subreddit page to rant about it all.

She said, "I am not a role model. I don't claim to be, I don't try to be, and I don't want to be." Jennette then continued saying, There was a time when I tried to live up to the aggrandizing title, that pedestal of a thing. Maybe it wasn't so much that I was trying to live up to it. Perhaps I thought I could and I thought I was supposed to, so I gave it my best shot. It's fine, I can admit it. Back in my adolescence, I was more amiable, bubbly, and on lightly humid days, maybe even flouncy. I was role model material and then some. Fast forward a few years, I've grown up a bit (emphasis on "a bit"). I might not be any wiser, but I like to think I'm more honest."

Jennette McCurdy didn't stop at that though. She went on to say, "To remove myself from the role model battle, the falsified standard set by the bubblegum industry, is - in my eyes - to remove myself from the counterintuitive battle of attempting to be something perfect while being glaringly aware of my imperfections. Now before you start thinking I'm some sort of derelict that leads a life of crime, let me clarify. I am proud of the way I live my life. I am proud of my choices. I am proud that no one can call me fake or say I don't stand up for myself. I am proud that my friends and family would say that I'm a good person."

Her show "Sam & Cat" was canceled and some racy pictures of Jennette McCurdy were leaked online as well. At this moment, it looks like her career isn't going great. She is proud of herself and doesn't want to be a role model but she also just lost her job and might want to start thinking about not upsetting the world with her online rants. McCurdy did say that she does appreciate the support of her fans and appreciates them.
