The offensive comments made by Jason Biggs last week on his personal twitter account do not reflect our company’s views or values, and we condemn them. Nickelodeon does not support or condone the use of graphic or vulgar language on any of our platforms. It was our mistake to link from our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles twitter feed to Jason’s personal twitter account, and we quickly corrected our error. We also insisted Jason use better judgment and discretion in public communications while affiliated with our brand.
That was September 4, 2012.
Later that month, Nickelodeon said it closely monitors its employees’ Twitter accounts:
“We expect our talent to exercise discretion in all aspects of their lives,” said Nickelodeon spokesman George Cabico.
Here are some of the tweets and retweets Biggs has published since then:
So this is Nickelodeon’s idea of “better judgment and discretion”?

Nickelodeon has deleted its tweet promoting Jason Biggs’ Twitter handle. We kept a screenshot for posterity:
