She said: ‘All of that drama, whatever, all of that stuff is, it’s so silly… Then just people online, like, fanning those flames and making it this huge crazy thing.’
The show, which premiered on March 27 of 2010, revolved around main character Tori Vega – played by Victoria – attending the elite performing arts high school, Hollywood Arts.
Victorious came to an abrupt end in 2013, after just four seasons on Nickelodeon.
