Amanda Bynes turned down an offer to be part of the 'Quiet on Set' documentary.

Bynes, who has since retired from acting and pursued a career in cosmetology, has faced personal struggles, including mental health issues that led to a nine-year conservatorship.

Her parents, who were initially granted control in 2013 due to concerns about her well-being, agreed to terminate the conservatorship in 2022.

Despite the attention surrounding the documentary and the revelations within, Bynes has chosen to remain silent on her experiences as a child star.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, soon after the release of the documentary, several former child stars from the network protested outside Nickelodeon's Burbank offices.

The protest was led by former Zoey 101 star Alexa Nikolas and others who held photographs of Nickelodeon executives accused of fostering a toxic environment and enabling abusers while the crowd chanted, "Protect survivors, not predators!" and "Power to survivors!"

Nikolas announced at the beginning of the protest, which was being live-streamed, "This is a very monumental moment for child stars everywhere."

"We were so scared of these networks and the adults that we were working for for such a long time, and now we’re adults and we get to let them know how we feel."
