15 Times Disney Channel Stars Threw Shade At the Network
Joe once shared a lengthy essay about what it was really like to grow up as a Jonas brother and, apparently, working for Disney was beyond stressful. He opened up about having limited creative freedom, feeling pressured to never make mistakes, and being on a show that he didn’t even find interesting.
Joe wrote to Vulture: “The thing about the show [Jonas] was that some of the writing on it was terrible. It just ended up being some weird slapstick humor that only a 10-year-old would laugh at… I had to shave every day because they wanted me to pretend like I was 16 when I was 20 (when the show was done, I cut my hair off and grew as much of a beard as I could). We went along with it at the time, because we thought Disney was our only real shot, and we were terrified that it could all be taken away from us at any moment.”
