81 January 30th, 2014 Fans Of Michael Muhney Hire Second Plane to Fly Over CBS On Day Of His Final Y&R Airshow!

Courtesy/Twitter

A group of 80 fans raised $2,000 to charter another plane to fly over CBS today showing their  support of fired Y&R star Michael Muhney, whose final airshow as Adam Newman, the black sheep of the Newman clan, was today on CBS.

The banner across the sky today read: #TeamMuhney Walks With Michael!”

But according to a tweet from TeamMuhney, and the website Celebrity Dirty Laundry, the banner was supposed to read: “You’ve all thrown punches, slash-and-burn articles, and Michael’s still here. He’s better than here. He’s HUGE. #TeamMuhney walks with Michael.

Whatever the case of the verbage, the fans of Michael Muhney are certainly not going down without a fight and letting their voices be heard.

So, what do you think about a second plane high above CBS for the fired star?  Let us know your thoughts!

    I’m with you Jimh…oh wait! I HAVE to add…it’s ridiculous! This man is accused of disrespecting and possibly molesting a female cast member. And while it may not be true…it may be! So to go to such length for a man they don’t know…because they like the character he plays on a soap opera…is beyond absurd.

    Do it AFTER/IF he’s been proven innocent; if you must throw out good money. (Wouldn’t a kite have been cheaper?) LOL…

    On the other hand–and not necessarily to support this airplane thing, because I find it more than a little over the top–isn’t that (waiting until later if he’s proved innocent) playing right into TPTB’s hands? In the absence of any concrete, reliable information (and I’d like to point out that to my knowledge, we’ve still had no reliable confirmation that the sexual harassment even went on, or that HK complained about it or even made the allegation, or that that that’s the “real” reason behind the firing–it’s all still speculative at this point, unless I missed something, and MM has yet to be accused of anything officially, only in the media and on the Internet), I try to weigh out what’s happened, and I think I’d give about 2/3 probability that this harassment thing is the real deal, and TPTB can’t say much of anything about it because of privacy and legal concerns. The other 1/3, however–and that’s still pretty big odds, in my book–says that it could very well have been something else entirely that got MM fired (something they’d get much less sympathy for from viewers–because I think most of us do accept that if the HK thing really went down, they didn’t have any choice but to fire MM), in which case this HK/abuse rumor is (a) groundless (as in, she never made any such complaint, and it had nothing to do with why MM was dismissed) and (b) an absolute godsend for TPTB, because it deflects attention from their unpopular choice, and they’re deliberately waiting until it all dies down before they make any attempt to set the record straight. In which case waiting until later, as you suggest, is playing right into their strategy. And if that’s what these fans who hired the plane are thinking, I can’t exactly blame them for not waiting until later (although as I said, I’m inclined to see this airplane thing as both way over the top, and more importantly pointless and a waste of money, in any case–TPTB are not going to reverse their decision because of it; if they see a significant ratings drop because of MM’s departure AND the HK thing is false, they might make a move in that direction, but if the ratings stay solid, the airplane will not make a bit of difference, and if the HK thing is real and it’s why he was fired, then they’re not hiring him back regardless of how many airplanes are hired).

    I’m really tired of this whole thing, I have to say. It’s ugly and destructive no matter where the truth lies. At least one, and possibly two, people have been victimized, and there’s a good chance we’ll never know what really happened. And now you’ve got people putting money into flying airplanes over the studio. Good grief; somebody just make it stop, please.

    And it’s certainly deflected attention from the bigger issue of how bad this show has gotten after three successive regimes who have not seemed to “get” what the show has traditionally been about and why its viewers have hung on so faithfully for so many years.

    You know what I find ridiculous is someone taking RUMORS and making it FACT. NO ONE has given one smidgen of evidence this man molested anyone; not even the ALLEDGED “victim” have been heard from by the public, but some “geniuses” want to call folks who still support Muhney names. I guess some forgot a person is INNOCENT until proven guilty.

    I also find it insane that some are so concern with what others do with THEIR money.

    rebecca1 replied

    Take a chill pill deb…and try to read a response (and understand it) before you get all snarky.

    What I said was “and while it may NOT be true…”

    And that if they want to defend the man and show that they’re pissed…maybe they should wait until they find out IF he is innocent.

    If he was just fired for any old reason….protest away…but when someone is accused of what he’s accused of…it’s a tad more serious.

    Sigh.

    Rebecca I understood exactly what was written and I stand by my post; HE IS INNOCENT until proven guilty and his fans have every right to support him how to see fit. It is none of your business what folks do with their own money; it does not affect your life.

    Joshua; the only nuts I see on this site are the ones who come on to claim others are nuts when obviously they should be looking in a mirror.

    I just finished the last 2 epis of Y&R, I, will ever watch… these “two” were my last.

    clearly, far and away, 2 goliaths graced our screens… and they were on Y&R

    staggering, how solid, these two men filled up our screens.

    The cant be replaced… Lets be very clear about that… JFP

    Michael Muhney – Billy Miller.

    Endorphin’ Beware. these two men had it in spades! WOW

    SENSATIONal – Alluring – Captivating – masculine – sexy – Tantalizing

    didn’t they fully embody ALL that!

    these two actors…. are not leaving a pot hole… nor a gaping “whole”…. they are leaving a sink whole…. it’s just too much to overcome…. add in the blase writing and direction

    I can’t spout why these two left such an impression… other than to say… I’d hoped the reigns and torch were bequeathed … such is not the case

    my opinion… after watching in and around these two stalwarts… didn’t excite me… you’d think, with the culminating… story… and exit… that, production would steer something to savor……

    not the case… it was rather obvious… that watching Jack… angered that Victor “knew” all along that it “was” Adam… was ho-hum and expected…at this point.. watching Victor, plod along… was in itself… a good laugh and made me giddy… is this all there is?

    the one thing that came to mind… was the new character Ian…. man… does he have presence… as intimated… in the dialogue… charismatic, salacious, and inviting. LOL what a treat for Gloria… come on Glo power it all up and treat us

    if it’s later revealed… that, Adam did in fact hit the dog… and Delia was already the hit and run…. heard round the world… and it’s Kelly…. then so be it… this does nothing for the fans… who … even I think… will never… see the likes of this two some… ever again, in Genoa City

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    you know… I have to add….

    for these two men to care about their profession…. and graced daytime….

    upstanding… transcend…. gave us years of viewing pleasure.

    I liken these two… to “All My Children” : Adam Chandler and Palmer Cortlandt.

    two powerhouses who went at it with all they got…. in this day and age… with the realm of daytime… in a state of influx as well… fans know this… hence, why Y&R currently… is in shambles…

    we’ll never see the likes of these two again…. I loved Adam and Palmer.

    Agreed! I don’t see any other duo on canvas who will ever perform to the level of intensity of these two. None! This week will be one for the Y&R history books. They both left it all on the screen.

    agreed.

    I sat their stunned, and sobbing… readily admit

    the high callibur of TALENT – in daytime was…

    WOW… i witnessed two men… acting their hearts out

    TEARS – Geena, on your last line….. “they both left it all on the screen”

    All the actors in the storyline have done an outstanding job. Must admit, the concept of Delia dying was disturbing to me, but the acting was riveting. It concerns me that all this hub bub about MM tends to minimize the excellence of Billy Miller in the scenes. In my opinion, the most amazing actor throughout this storyline was Elizabeth Henderickson. The way she signified a mother’s pain without emoting too much was exceptional. Also, her search for a way to deal with it all just pulled at your heartstrings. Melissa Claire Egan & Liz Henderickson are terrific actresses.

    Jimmy replied

    I haven’t heard any of these rumors, but if that happens, to GH I will go. Y&R is really slipping, these last few years have been pretty bad. The Diane murder story of 2011, Phyllis’s hit and run story revisited in 2012 and, well, almost everything in 2013 (the blogger story, Melanie’s rape suit against Adam, et al)… it’s all proven to be boring, stupid, plot-driven and lazy writing. Michelle Stafford and Billy Miller, as well as Michael Muhney, were all top-dogs at Y&R; phenomenal actors with interesting, multi-layered characters. And now they’re all gone. Sure, David Tom is back as Billy but it wont be the same. I hope Y&R comes back from all this loss in 2014… GH is looking like a very good option at the moment…

    GH is winning? Did Charlie Sheen write that post? Incidentally, you are repeating rumors as if they were fact. And don’t forget the fool hearty Frank Valentini let ratings powerhouse Tristan Rogers slip through their fingers while Y&R snatched that charismatic and talented Aussie up. Don’t get me wrong, I am done with both Y&R and GH but to say GH is winning is just plain silly.

    Karen you need to get a hobby. Whatever they knew they SAW NOTHING. There was no witness to the so called groping. If he really did it are you saying the rest of the cast saw it and did nothing? Was he so stupid to do it in front of anyone? Come-on that road is too stupid to even go down. If someone saw it they would jump in. The cast is a BUNCH OF COWARDS that ganged up on him once he was gone because that’s what cowards do. As for Doug D. & Kristoff St. John they are thrown so little scripts now a day they just want to be seen & heard. As for Hunter King she could have called the police the first time it happened and it would have been settled right there & then. Not wait until the so called second time. H.K. was nobody special when she came into the show and now everyone knows her name. I think you need to put the pieces together and stop calling everyone naive

    Rumour has it that MM is going to General Hospital. If all those accusations about him were true, do you think he would be going to another soap already?!?! If he had actually done that, he would have been fired immediately or arrested. Just Y&R’s way of trying to direct all the fan hatred for them onto MM, especially when he wasn’t allowed to defend himself.

    Jimmy replied

    Exactly, innocent until proven guilty, and these allegations against him have not been proven, so everyone who thinks it’s true needs to realize that not everything on the internet is true and, as it is with most things, there is much more to the story than what is being released (and that ain’t much!)

    I will always miss Michael Muhney’s portrayal of Adam. I hope the show does not recast, but rather find a way (or try at the very least) to have MM come back. If not, find a suitable recast or don’t recast at all.

    We do not know it hasn’t been proven. It is a private issue between the parties involved (HHK,MM, and CBS/SONY.

    I’m a huge fan of Michael and was devastated by his release, and debating leaving Y&R. But felt that wouldn’t be fair to the other cast members i also support and the crew of writers and executives. Y&R is stronger than it has been in recent years, and is finding its stride back, so I am staying with the series.

    However, fans attacking both Michael and Hunter, for whatever *rumours* there may be, is wrong. We do not know what really happened, and until either party speaks, we won’t. There are three sides to every story: Michael’s, Hunter’s and the truth. Do I believe the claims against him? No. Do I believe he got let go for a very specific reason? Yes. Obviously, he was given time to wrap up a storyline, and do feel it was more character-driven and that Sony used it as a way to get him out of his contract.

    I support Michael, CBS/Sony and Y&R. Adam Newman will never be the same again. His performance this past week had me in tears with how powerful it truly was!

    No, Michael Muhney was not the most incredible actor to haunt the stages of CBS Television City and The Young & The Restless. Jeanne Cooper was.

    The show will survive without him, just like it survived without the child actors who played the role in the 90′s, or Chris Engen who had the part before Mr. Muhney.

    Sounds like he’s a pretty despicable person, and it sounds more and more like he was just a ticking time bomb that was going to explode eventually. I don’t hear anyone, even people not associated with the show, who are rallying to his defense that truly know what happened behind the scenes at Y&R.

    His career will be going nowhere for a long time, so you’ll have a lot of free time on your hands…you invested 23 years into Y&R, seems a waste to throw that enjoyment away on account of what happened.

    Actor : Jeanne Cooper – Female… without a doubt.. bar none

    Actor: Michael Muhney – Male… he surpasses… Billy Miller and Peter Bergman

    Michael Muhney’ Adam: resonated… his impact on the show… whether you liked his character or not

    I’m happy that the fans… chose to… chose to herald… and chose to make a statement

    I hope CBS – Sony – Y&R feels the wrath… fan sentiment… for a show… thats a 365 day production… matters to us… fans… who supported this production… 365 days a year… as well.

    I’m not looking at this any other way…. his superlative performance…. from the outside looking in… was staggering

    I applaud his contribution

    Y&R will never….. “will never” have the same potential… ever again… in the coop… Michael Muhney and Billy Miller.

    I’m shell shocked… that Y&R star… has fallen so – carelessly

    is the production under duress…. damn them… I hope

    I choose not to watch any more…. I will keep up with the show… via MF blog… and SOD

    Today…. Jan. 31, 2014 I stopped watching CBS – Sony – Y&R

    the production team… I hope the best

    even more so… I will remember Michael Muhney, Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford, Jeanne Cooper, Eileen Davidson

    fact: Y&R will always have a pause… the year 2013… it all went to hell and a hand basket… will not have to live up to the standard they equated with #1… it’s perishable

    This hyperbole over two actors leaving the show is completely out of hand and damaging the credibility of soap fans. People saying that Mr. Muhney and Mr. Miller are irreplaceable just sound silly. Virtually no one on a soap opera is irreplaceable, especially actors who were on as short a time as those two. And I hope the commenters who say there will “never” be another actor as good as Mr. Muhney on Y&R plan to share their magic crystal ball! I mean, let’s try to maintain some sense of perspective. Yes, in my opinion, they were fantastic in their roles. And it’s obvious they will be missed. But Y&R could hire some other equally fantastic actor — there are a lot of them out there — tomorrow for all we know.

As far as his being a despicable person….where do you get your info? it’s funny I never heard that until this all came up….so Joe…why don’t you wait until the truth comes out…and if nothing comes of this we will all know that he wasn’t guilty of anything in the first place. People are upset and that’s none of your business so don’t slander the guy without facts…

I keep hearing he will never work again, BULLOCK, TK was fired from Charmed supposely of sexual harassing SD,(same as MM) he went on to have his own show and G.H. and her allegation to my knowledge was ever proven true. And just like MM he was kill off the show. I’m wishing MM the best luck, and hope his and BM career prosperious, Y&R didn’t make them and certainly want break them.

    So I just returned to this post to see if there were any new comments and I just keep shaking my head in astonishment at how half the people here support Michael whatever-his-name-is (I don’t watch Y&R) and until this story hadn’t even heard of the guy.

    But it amazes me that because people like his acting…or think he’s good-looking…or a combination of both…that they’ll adamantly defend a person accused of sexual harassment without even considering the possibility that the accusations could be true!

    I remember when someone told me that Mel Gibson was an anti-semite; that he’d made horrible remarks. I told them they must have heard wrong; or got it confused with another actor. At the time I was a big fan. He was sooooo good-looking (karma’s a bitch; he looks like the bastard he is now) but I digress. He was good-looking and his films were fun. I could not/would not believe anything negative about him. And then whadaya know! He did make anti-semitic remarks! He is a womanizer! He did cheat on his wife! He did say and do vile things to his next wife! On and on and one…

    So what does this have to do with the actor in question here? The point is he might…just might…be guilty! And I’m NOT SAYING HE IS! But he COULD BE! And yet his fans won’t even consider that possbility…and waste their time and money defending him.

    Why isn’t the reaction…”Oh, no! I HOPE that’s not true! I like him..or at least I like what I THINK I KNOW ABOUT HIM because I’m attached to his fictitious character!

    If and when it’s shown that he’s innocent…breathe a sigh of relief and hope he gets rehired somewhere.

    If he’s proven guilty…be pissed….at him! Not the victim or the network!

    And separate fact from fiction…actor from character.

    It’s a shame Y & R fired the character of Adam Newman. He totally did not deserve this as he is the best actor on the show. It should be about the show and not personal feelings among the actors. I say hire him back and FAST!!

    Just when everyone started to care deeply for adam. They had to do a hit and run on his story line. Why???? He was happy being a dad and having a baby boy. Everyone I know felt his pain.

    Please bring back Michael, he was the main reason I watched the show. Unless you can bring charges against him for allegations, this was a stupid firing. And why did Ms.Jill wait till his contract was up to bring these so call allegations. I think Ms Jill was afraid of Mr MM talent as a actor/writer. Maybe she was afraid that he would take over, since he seemed to be making a lot of noise to the writers about the story lines. As he has stated he was involve in the writing of a another show that was doing very well. Think Jill had other issues. This is truly sad. Bring back our Adam. Swallow your pride admit to your mistake do the right thing. If you can’t bring proof of charges hire the man back before you loose him for good. I Follow MM.

    Ive been watching Y&R since it first started and have watched with irritation when my favorites have been replaced with new faces. I have drawn many people to your show over the years and we can all agree that we like Adam as is and do not wish to see him leave the show, or come back as a new face. the old; Billy, Abbey, Kyle and now Adam are all perfect in the roles, please, please, bring back MIcheal M.
