iCarly, a popular Nickelodeon kids show about a teenager who creates an online show, features a running joke about 'hobos'. The show's website even has a photo album of the main character dressed as a 'hobo' because, the site explains, "At iCarly we LOVE hobos. So we had ourselves a hobo party! Check out our new iSnaps gallery to see iCarly all hobo-fied."
Please write to the CEO of Viacom, which owns Nickelodeon, and let them know you don't approve of making fun of homeless people. Ask them to apologize for these insensitive jokes. Our children shouldn't be taught that it is okay to mock people because of their financial situation.
