Apparently, there’s an even crazier iCarly fan theory than the one claiming Crazy Steve murdered Drake and Josh, kidnapped Megan, and created whole new lives for them as siblings Carly and Spencer Shay. This other theory involves Freddie Benson, his mother, and Bee Movie.
Basically, the theory — first posited by Twitter user @lilgrlhj in April — claims that Freddie’s mother also appeared as a character in Bee Movie who later hooked up with protagonist bee Barry B. Benson, and together they had Freddie. It’s since racked up thousands of likes and retweets.
iCarly fans know Mrs. Benson is a total helicopter parent who tries her hardest to protect Freddie from literally everything, real or imaginary. According to @lilgrlhj, she doesn’t want to make the same mistake with her son like she did with her husband — the mistake being accidental death.
And now, a little more than three months after the theory was originally posted, actor Nathan Kress came across it and actually, um, confirmed it. Does this mean the bee theory is now iCarly canon? Or does only show creator Dan Schneider have that power? (On a more serious note, it’s nice to see Kress is taking this whole thing in stride, since the theory is actually pretty mean.)
And if you’re still not convinced of the validity of this “confirmed” theory, I present to you Exhibit B(ee):
