Nickelodeon Signs Off Air For 17 Minutes To Remember Parkland Shooting Victims

Yesterday, across the country, thousands of kids walked out of their schools in protest of stricter gun laws, following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Fla.

News across social media and on air focused on the students walking out — but what you might’ve missed is that Nickelodeon stood in solidarity with them all.

The network actually signed off the air for 17 minutes last night — in memory of the 17 victims from the Parkland shooting.


Actor Harvey Guillen pointed out the silent event on Instagram.

“When Nickelodeon has more moral courage than your congress,” he wrote, adding, “Proud to work for this company.”
