Alexa Nikolas slams Justin Long’s ‘Punk’d’ episode about underage drinking

Alexa Nikolas was deeply disturbed and triggered by an episode of the show “Punk’d” that resurfaced featuring Justin Long and her alleged assailant, Jonah Hill. In an interview with TheFantasyTimes, the former “Zoey 101” star expressed her concern about the episode being released and criticized the men and the network for approving it. The episode, originally aired in 2005, involved “Punk’d” co-creator Ashton Kutcher pranking Long by arranging a dinner with two girls who were 17 and 18 years old. The girls were played by actresses, including Ashley Greene from “Twilight.” Nikolas, who had previously claimed to have partied with Long and Hill when she was 16, criticized the actors for participating in an episode that involved underage drinking.

In the episode, Long is unaware of the girls’ ages, and they are served alcoholic beverages by a waitress who is also an actress. The manager of the restaurant, played by an actor, and one of the girls’ father, also played by an actor, confront Long for drinking with underage girls. Nikolas expressed her disappointment with the episode, stating that it reflected the culture of the time and questioned whether much has changed since then. She emphasized the importance of accountability and empowerment for survivors, which led her to create Eat Predators.

TheFantasyTimes reached out to Long, Kutcher, and MTV for comment, but Hill’s representative declined to comment. While Long’s representatives did not address the backlash specifically related to his “Punk’d” episode, they stated that Long had no knowledge of the alleged situation involving Nikolas.

Nikolas, now 31, claimed on Twitter that she attended a party at Long’s house when she was 16 and was served alcohol. She also alleged that Hill kissed her without consent during the party. Nikolas explained that she felt scared and angry as a child and revealed that this was not the first time she had experienced assault or objectification. However, she did admit to drinking alcohol with Long and Hill when she was 16.

Nikolas mentioned that the partygoers, including Hill and Long, made jokes about her being underage throughout the night. She stated that nothing was hidden, and the age difference seemed to encourage secrecy and jokes among them. She did not file charges at the time because her mother was unaware of her presence at the party.

It is important to note that Nikolas has taken legal action against one of her other alleged perpetrators, her ex-husband Michael Milosh. She accused Milosh of sexual assault, abuse, and grooming when she was a minor. As for Hill, he vehemently denied Nikolas’ allegations, calling them a complete fabrication.

Alexa Nikolas felt very triggered by a resurfaced episode of “Punk’d” that featured Justin Long and her alleged assailant Jonah Hill.

“I just saw it for the first time today,” the “Zoey 101” alum tells TheFantasyTimes Tuesday.

“We as a society should be deeply disturbed that those men and the network signed off on that episode being released.”

In the episode, which originally aired in 2005, “Punk’d” co-creator Ashton Kutcher pranks Long by having him go out to dinner with two girls who are 17 and 18 years old.

The “He’s Just Not That into You” star is unaware of the young women’s supposed ages and the waitress, played by an actress, serves them all alcoholic beverages.

The restaurant’s manager, played by an actor, and one of the teens’ father, also played by an actor, then angrily storm in and call out Long for drinking with “underage girls.”

“Do you realize how bad this can be?” the fake manager says while in character.

“We can all leave and no one knows anything,” Long can be heard saying, seemingly trying to appease the situation.

According to the episode, Hill was an “accomplice” in the skit and knew that the “Jeepers Creepers” star was getting “Punk’d.”

“They had no shame,” Nikolas says of the skit. “[It] says a lot about our culture at the time.”

She then adds, “I don’t think the culture has changed much honestly. Which is why I created Eat Predators. It’s time for accountability. Power to survivors.”

TheFantasyTimes has reached out Long, Kutcher and MTV, the network that originally aired the series, for comment. Hill’s rep declined to comment.

While Long’s reps did not address the backlash surrounding his “Punk’d” episode, his reps told us in response to other claims Nikolas made about Hill, “This is the first time Justin has been made aware of this situation that allegedly happened nearly two decades ago.

“While Justin is sympathetic to any and all victims of any abuse, the simple fact remains he has no knowledge of what may or may not have happened concerning Ms. Nikolas.”

Nikolas, now 31, claimed on Twitter over the weekend that she once attended a party at Long’s house, where she was allegedly served alcohol even though she was only 16.

She claimed Hill kissed her without consent when they both stepped outside to smoke a cigarette.

“I was a child so I obviously felt scared and angry,” the actress told TheFantasyTimes Tuesday. “Sadly, this wasn’t the first time I’ve been assaulted or objectified as a child.”

Nikolas claimed to us that she wanted to leave, but was allegedly “intoxicated from their alcohol and so none of that helped my decision making afterwards.”

“This was before Uber and Lyft by the way and I didn’t even drive yet,” she added.

Nikolas also claimed that Hill, Long and other partygoers knew she was underage at the time because they allegedly “joked” about it throughout the night.

“‘Zoey 101’ was even mentioned … Nothing was hidden on our end that’s for sure. … Our age just seemed to encourage secrecy and jokes amongst one another,” she alleged.

Nikolas — an outspoken activist against alleged misconduct of child actors — said she didn’t file charges at the time because her mom didn’t even know she was at the party.

However, the Nickelodeon alum has taken legal action against one of her other alleged perpetrators. She previously sued her ex-husband, Michael Milosh, whom she met at 16 and married at age 19.

In 2021, Nikolas previously claimed, per court documents, that the Rhye singer, now 47, sexually assaulted, abused and groomed her when she was a minor.

However, she decided to drop the suit two years later, with plans to refile at a later time.

Hill told TheFantasyTimes via his attorneys Tuesday that Nikolas’ allegations about him are a “complete fabrication.”
