97 January 6th, 2014 Michael Muhney Fans Ban Together To Raise Funds To Fly Banner Over CBS In Protest Of His Dismissal!

Courtesy/CBSWatch

Outraged fans of Michael Muhney’s (Adam Newman) who are upset by his firing from The Young and the Restless have gotten together and plan to fly a banner via a plane over CBS Studios in West Hollywood protesting the dismissal of their favorite actor!

According to TMZ.com, “The fan group on facebook has gotten together $785 to pay for a banner that will soon fly over CBS Studios in Los Angeles with a message saying, “NO ADAM NEWBIE, JUST MICHAEL MUHNEY.”

This is nothing new for passionate fans of the number one soap who did the same thing when the very popular Daniel Goddard (Cane) was supposedly let-go from the series at that time back in 2011!

Of course, all of this is happening as more of the behind-the-scenes drama that caused the popular actor’s ousting has made its way around the Internet, especially after TMZ.com over the weekend revealed that Muhney was allegedly fired for groping a co-stars breasts on two occasions.  Muhney has already finished taping back on December 21st with his last airdate to run on January 30th.

So what do you think about the fans efforts to fly a plane over CBS protesting Muhney’s axing?  Do you think in light of the recent allegations this seems inappropriate?  Or, do you think that in light of the recent allegations that this is exactly what is needed to let the fans voices be heard that are pro-Muhney?   Weigh-in!

    Inappropriate is an understatement! What are these fans thinking? Would they want their daughter working with him? WTF!? I just have to say it…TPTB would have done an investigation that indicated there is truth to these allegations before firing him. Simple as that!

    STOP BLAMING THE VICTIM! It’s disgusting, sad, and embarrassing as a woman and a lifelong soap fan.

    Stop blaming either of them!!
    MM is innocent until proven guilty..
    These stories have a way of turning..
    We know nothing, we have no facts..
    Do not crucify a man with knowledge of the truth ans verified facts..
    No one in this thread including you, can prove MM is guilty or knows the whole story.

    thank you @su

    innocent till proven guilty

    leave well enough alone

    I loved… the show…. and the last reigning supreme actor to grace… Michael Muhney… Adam…

    I honestly, have to believe.. in this day and age… with the climate… so.. are you politically correct… that watching over your shoulder… is second nature.. jeopardizing your livelihood.. is not an easy FEAT?

    if he made a mistake… then… it’s on his shoulders… I have every right to express empathy for… and that this fallout.. is not insurmountable

    as for Y&R… it’s titanic’ed… gone… nothing but regret… dissapointment.. and all the historical significance the show deserved… is merely an ebb and flow of once was

    Harry replied

    I don’t think anyone is blaming MM right now–they’re (we’re) just saying to not blame the alleged victim. At this point all we know are allegations and that young lady’s name should never have been released.

    Juana replied

    It takes two to Tango! SUMMER! Is not innocent!! she’s 20 years old going on 50! She may look innocent, but Not! I believe in second chances. This is what happens when you hire young girls, they take the company down. Attention is what they want. I miss the Best Actor! MM

    “This is what happens when you hire young girls, they take the company down!” Juana, it’s scary to think someone who thinks like you do is out there possibly in the work force. I certainly hope you’re not in human resources. Again, stop attacking the alleged accuser. Michael Muhney has asked his fans on Twitter to be kind to everyone and quoted Ben Franklin who said. “Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see.” Slamming the young lady is not helping anyone, most notably, it’s not helping Michael Muhney. You can defend HIM without slamming HER especially considering all we have to go on is not second hand information, it’s third hand information. We simply don’t know what may or may not have happened.

    Sharyn replied

    That sucks…..Others are saying way worse….Team Muchney all the way

    Harry replied

    Agreed. But it’s not just a faction (not all) of MM fans who are blaming the victim. After JFP and CBS were hit with a chit storm of angry fans, suddenly this story is leaked out and TMZ reveals the name of the accuser . The breadcrumbs lead to the a certain TMZ executive who is married to the head of CBS daytime. It is an employers’ job to provide a safe and secure environment and leaking her name to the media has put her safety at risk. She did not want her name out there. Heads are going to roll over this and I don’t mean just MM’s.

    MBmomof3 replied

    I agree with you Harry. Heads should roll. None of this should have been leaked to TMZ for HK’s or MM’s sake. What an HR and PR nightmare. TPTB really handled this situation about as badly as possible. It was a private, personnel matter that should have been handled by PR professionals way before any announcements were made. I’m sure there are a lot of behind the scenes shenanigans that go on in the entertainment industry that fans never know and don’t need to know.

    andrea replied

    there is more of a soap going on behind the camera than what they show the public!!!!

    k/kay replied

    You might want to also note that MM is a member of Mensa. I will let you google what group that is I just found that out. Which makes this allegation even more suspect. The smear campaign needs to stop he is out the door now they can go back to their hair models . Hunter King also got thrown under the bus you want to see what kind of career she has now.

    k/kay replied

    I will tell you this if it turns out the allegations are true then I will be the first to apologize but until then I am trying to figure out a guy with an IQ in the upper 98% (Mensa) would fill up a young woman and also in front of another actor. It Escapes me! Hollywood blackballs actors who do not tow the line all the time it has been going on for decades. I guess you will have your answer when a FOJ is playing the part of Adam in a couple of months!

    Nikki replied

    How is this inappropriate? What TMZ has reported is not proven fact. There has been no evidence shown to the public and neither party has spoken out. Could he be guilty? Of course, but people like you, MBmomof3, need to also realize he could be innocent. Not every report of sexual inappropriateness is fact. No one here is blaming “the victim.” Because, in this case, there are two victims. Both actors names are now out there under a horrible circumstance, without any evidence or cause. Michael Muhney fans still have a right to support their favorite actor.

    Reply

    k/kay replied

    Oops feel not fill what a moron!!!

    Harry replied

    But many many fans are indeed blaming the alleged victim. Putting her name out there is akin to putting a target on her back because some (and I would underline some here if that feature were available) MM fans are mad as hell, and they are Tweeting vicious things, posting mean comments on the comment section of soap rags and Facebook pages/ Some of these mean spirited slamming comments can be found right here. I feel just as defensive of Michael and his family especially. We simply don’t know the true story and until we do, we should not be slamming either actor.

    Joshua replied

    These women are literally insane and can’t even for a second put themselves in the position of Hunter King. This could be their 19-year-old daughter (or niece) that Michael Muhney sexually harassed and they don’t care.

    Reminds me of the brain dead following Jim Jones acquired back in the late-1970′s. Remember how THAT ended?

    Tristan replied

    I am sorry, but the “Mensa defense” offered above by a Muhney supporter is one of the most illogical posts I’ve seen about this mess. How does having a high I.Q. prevent one from displaying bad behavior or making stupid choices? Very smart people can and do make stupid behavioral choices, especially ones ruled by emotion or instinct rather than by intellect. Intellectually a smart person may know something is wrong, but still be compelled to do it for emotional or behavioral reasons.

    That kid at Harvard who made bomb threats to get out of his final exam? A smart person, indeed. And one made who made some really dumb choices!!!!!!

    High intellect is no sure-fire vaccination against dumb decisions or emotional urges.

    If these allegations are true…i think this is nonsense to support him unless proven otherwise…you’ll be no different than those foreign countries who stone the victim and allow the criminal go unpunished…none of us were there but what we’ve heared about him doesnt look good. If he is innocent lets hear it…he himself admitted he did something wrong and if he didnt do what is alleged then let us hear it from him and not his fans…if someone accused me of something like this id be out there right now with a good lawyer declaring my innocence!!!

    oh please. I seriously doubt there’s any conspiracy! several actors have hinted that there is more to this that fans know…that MM was inappropriate….

    it’s more than likely the allegations are true and to defend him is ludicrous. he’s a man, an actor…and because you fall in love/like with his character doesn’t justify a man accused of molesting a woman.

    For those who say he’s not guilty til proven so…well he’s not innocent til proven so. To demand he be rehired without knowing for sure that he didn’t do it is an insult to women everywhere…to the very women who are defending him.

    Pitiful.

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    Due process was done, not all disputes are settled in court. Many are settled out of court. Seems like this was the case here. The HR department for SONY or CBS investigated the charges and obviously concluded MM had engaged in behavior worthy of termination. IF MM felt the he was wrongly terminated, he would have stated so in his exit interview. Instead he admitted that he had indeed done something wrong. I hope you aren’t suggesting or hoping that HK takes MM to court. I doubt MM wants that and is glad HK did not decide to do that. MM’s supporters don’t realize all their support is a double-edged sword for him.

    If he was as big a lech as they are letting on, he would have been dismissed immediately at the time it happened.

    I personlly tend to believe that something serious happened but until its proven, Im giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    I like how Maria Arena Bell put, She is a fan of Michael Muhney the actor, not the person.

    Rob replied

    Because I can understand not liking him personally. If I knew him in real life I probably wouldnt like him personally from the sound of his attitude but that has no bearing on his talent as an actor.

    I protest his firing because NOONE will tell us exactly why, just rumors.

    Give me proof or a statement from Hunter King, who he alledgedly sexually harrassed, and maybe Ill change my mind.

    If him being an asshole was reason enough to fire him Im sure half the cast would be gone by now.

    rebecca1 replied

    I also think it’s ludicrous for people to be defending him…if he were fired on a whim…chage of storyline…budget cut…fine. I get the protests. But something as serious as this…once allegations are made, cannot be swept under the rug. Fans shouldn’t be demanding the rehiring of a man that MAY have molested a woman.

    They need to sit tight…then if and when his innocence is proven…they can rant all they want.
    Why in this case Guilty untill proven innocent? Because the very fact that he might have done it should make both females and males take pause before jumping to his defense.

    Unfortunately for me I cannot enjoy his last shows on screen because whenever I see Adam on the show all I can see now is MM and think about the rumors. The magic of acting is the ability to suspense disbelief and imagine what you are seeing is real. These rumors have broken that bubble for me so now I don’t see Adam just MM. It is a shame because I would have like to really savor these last few performances of his.
    Sometimes as a fan of any show it is best not to know too much about the actor’s private lives and just enjoy the performance.

    If the allegations are true, this is ridiculous. There is a time to fight when an injustice has occurred. But, if this young girl has been violated, shouldn’t the concern be directed to her? Michael Muhney is a good actor, but again if the allegations are true, this goes way beyond a character being taken off the canvas.

    Michael needs to speak. He needs to make a statement. I believe he is innocent but I certainly do not know the man. I spoke up for him because I am a fan of his work. However, this does not excuse anyone, no matter if it is him or another of violating a persons mind, body, or privacy. Speak up Michael, defend yourself. The longer you keep quiet, the worse off you will be. As for a recast, life goes on, either way brother.

    TnT 2.0 Forever replied

    Why would lawyers be involved? Unless HK pressed charges, which would imply that MM did do something, there is no need for lawyers. MM has not specifically denied the charges because he knows he is guilty. Even praised JFP in the interview with Branco and said she handled the situation well. He also stated he had been let go because of his own actions.

    Mary SF replied

    Unfortunately Tim at this stage of the game and in the world we live in a denial is pointless. I live near Toronto Canada, and heard the mayor of the city Rob Ford deny over and over how innocent he was. I heard sports legend Lance Armstrong deny doping allegations. I heard Bill Clinton say he did not have sexual relations with that woman. They all lied. In fact it seems the more guilty there are the more than claim they are innocent. So even if he is innocent and denied it people would not believe him. If MM is smart he will keep his mouth shut– he doesn’t have to defend himself, he is innocent until proven guilty and if he is guilty then I for one do not need to hear his insincere apology, because in reality they are never sorry for what they did only sorry they got caught.

    Didn’t that mayor excuse his smoking crack by claiming he was drunk when he did so? That cracked me up (no pun intended).

    Nikki replied

    I agree wholeheartedly with Mary SF. Even if Michael Muhney were to come out and make a statement, compose a tweet, do an interview, whatever, it wouldn’t matter at this point. People are divided over this and those who believe he did it would not believe him if he claimed innocence. Sadly, this will probably haunt his career for the rest of his life, whether he is guilty or not.

  13. wolfsmistress says:

    The only thing Muhney’s ever admitted is that he is outspoken, which he is, especially about the treatment of the actors by the industry. If he had seriously been such a big problem on the set, especially for the five years he had been there already, then why did JFP, Sony, Steve Kent, Angelica McDaniel and CBS Daytime ask the man to sign a new contract for another two years’ worth of work? Something’s rotten in Denmark, and I highly doubt that it’s Muhney!

    My personal opinion? Muhney and Billy Miller, who quit because outs were not negotiable on his upcoming contract, were way more popular that JFP’s “golden boy” (and massively exclusive contracted) Steve Burton. He and his character of Dylan just weren’t catching on with fans; Miller & Muhney (who had made even an alleged child-killer human and caring) were both hugely loved by the fans. Dylan and Burton weren’t. Get rid of the two best male actors on the show, and who is going to step in and get the major storylines, screen time and face time? Burton. In less than a year, he’s already gone from homeless vet just in town to owner of the Crimson Lights (an iconic eatery first owned by Nick & Sharon!), having 2 relationships with a half-brother’s fiancee and a stepbrother’s ex-wife, been father to Adam’s child, worked for Billy (and befriended his half-sister), befriended his former sister-in-law & charmed her child (Sharon & Faith), been involved in Kevin & Chloe’s storylines (purchasing CL, being Delia’s friend, mourning her death), and now is the son of one of the major core families in town (Nikki Reed Newman’s long-lost, never before mentioned baby) with a cult leader, which also involved Christine and Paul because of Paul’s connection to Nikki during the time she was in the commune! The man’s had his finger in everyone’s pie since he arrived in January last year, but fans don’t care for him or the actor. Why not get rid of two amazing actors to forward your friend’s chances? Wouldn’t put it past JFP, myself.

    And if there’s more to the story, I’m sure we’ll be hearing it from Muhney himself. Personally, I think he’s stacking up all kinds of things against CBS, Y&R, JFP, TPTB and Hunter King before making his “I’m going to sue” announcement…

    Excellent assessment. Something is really fishy about this whole matter-whether or not there is truth to the MM allegations. Has anyone been in a job situation where you thought everything was going great but someone appeared on the scene and suddenly statements were made about you and your personality that weren’t true ? Prior to the arrival of this new employee,you were seen as a hard worker, came to work on time but suddenly when the new guy came around you were found fault with even by the HR department that had liked you so much. The HR department even brought you in to sign a form indicating a description of yourself that even your own mother would cry about because it was so false. And of course in these cases there are witnesses HR lines up to attest to your alleged behavior. In the meantime you have many friends at work who invite you out socially and appear to appreciate the job you do.
    Look this happens everyday in the work force of America. Not only in Hollywood. They -HR -just want to go with the new person who a higher up favors. This happened to me not an actor but a dentist. I had moved from another state, bought a car and then this catastrophe happened-The more I protested the more lies were put out there. The character assassination hurt more than losing the job. But the head of the health center who fired me and other doctoral staff as part of her staff shakeup was dismissed 5 years later when no doctors wanted to apply to work there any longer.These hatchet men/women like JFP- they get their just reward eventually for disposing of personnel.
    What is in the dark does comes to light.

    I agree with you 100%. The downfall of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller as well as The Young and The Restless started when JFP came on board as EP. She has to make room for all her friends. As far as firings go, everyone knows if a Company or your boss does not want you there they can get rid of anyone they want to. Michael could outshine them all. He will shine again, whether it is on the set of Young and the Restless, (Never say never, he could be back) Primetime, or in the movies. His ego is big and inflated, so what, his talent is even bigger and it shows in his work. I cannot wait to see him in something else. In the meantime, I am one of those Muhney Fans who wants that banner to fly high for him. For all his hard work and enjoyment we have had watching him on our t.v. screens. Him and Chelsea and that baby were the best you could ask for. They will never capture that again. He and Sharon were magical as Shadam. Some of the best Y&R had to offer. When you have a good thing and it is not broke, don’t mess with it. You can never go back and capture that magic again. No one can play Adam Newman but Michael Muhney. No one. Also I want Y&R exec. to know they really screwed up the day they fired Michael Muhney. All his fans will stop watching on Jan. 31st.
    Fans can make a show and fans can break a show. JFP started all the cracks, the fans will just finish it.

    Geez, why don’t they raise funds to fly a banner which reads “Free OJ”? Really, I think MM is a brilliant actor and will miss his character but if I am going to raise money for a cause, it’s not going to be for an actor making well into the six figures annually and who may be guilty of sexual harassment. And speaking of TMZ, they revealed themselves to be the scumbags of all gossip rags by revealing the name of Michael’s accuser. Now she is hit with a hail storm of enraged MM fans’ wrath and her safety and security is at risk.

    This situation can, in no way, be compared to the one of OJ Simpson. If what Michael Muhney is accused of is true, he was only sexually inappropriate. He allegedly touched her boobs. Going with that story, and not assuming there is anything more, he did not rape her, he did not murder her. He did not commit a capital crime, nor has he been accused of committing one.

    Nikki replied

    PatF, his firing, without these circumstances and allegations involved, does not mean that he would not come back to the show “ever”. As Michael Fairman stated in this article, Daniel Goddard was fired and brought back, assumingly, by fan efforts; same with the actress, Rebecca Herbst, on General Hospital, among others.

    However, with this scandal hitting several media outlets and social media, it is highly doubtful that he will return, I agree. But these efforts by Michael Muhney’s fans were started pre-scandal and they are following through because they are passionate and that is something to be respected. May it be a waste of time and money? Sure, but it is their choice to make.

    The purpose of the plane is not to bring him back necessarily but to show our support to an actor who has help make this show what it is for the last 4ys #1.Of course we as Michael Muhney fans are saying no one else can play the character of Adam Newman and own it like him. some of the dumb comments made on this blog makes me sick to my stomach. It seems that we live in a society where people want to have a person tar and feather not waiting on the truth but running high off a rumor. No proof just rumors. Just so you know we are also raising money to donate to his cancer fund. You say if this was your daughter, how about if this was your son? Wouldn’t you want to know the truth before people threw everything at him except the kitchen sink. His family knows the truth and are standing behind him 100% and as long as he has his family behind him that’s all he needs. So stop all this noise and anger and use that energy for something else. I feel sorry for both parties involved because they are both having mean and ugly things said to and about them. so please let’s stop the madness and the finger pointing because we may never know what happened.

    I am going to attempt to be diplomatic here. I think people really need to examine their priorities. This is an actor who has been terminated for inappropriate behaviour…do you really think he WANTS this job back??? That 785 could be much better spent on helping the homeless or helping victims of recent severe weather. In the grand scheme of life this is very minute. We all need to take a step back and realize this is a fictional show. Actors come…actors go…and Michael Muhney is gone. Lets move on.

    I am totally embarrassed to read this. I would be shocked but nothing shocks me after the OJ verdict. Soap fans are the laughingstock of the mainstream entertainment world already. The molestation story, and yes this young actress was moolested, is well sourced and I have yet to read a denial by any of the parties. This type of fanaticism hurts a genre that is I already dying. Even Young and Restless has Ilost huge numbers of viewers and networks only tolerate so much slippage.

    Regardless of what happened (if anything at all) between Michael Muhney and Hunter King, this whole matter could and should have been handled quietly and kept under wraps rather than be put out there for the public and embarass all those concerned. Michael Muhney is such an excellent actor and portrayed the role of “Adam” so well that he absolutely cannot and should not be replaced by anyone. The main reason that this show was so good was because Mr. Muhney brought so much excitement and drama to his character and made this show what it is (or was). To the powers that be at Y&R, you need to seriously rethink your very poor decision and re-hire Mr. Muhney immediately, unless you do not care that your ratings will be strongly affected. There are certain people that cannot be replaced, and HE is one of them!!

    But the crazy soap fans demanded information and said nasty things about the producer and other actors. The entire cast and crew knew what happened as did the soap press. Supposedly the whole story was on the Internet within days of the firing.

    Sorry, but I don’t understand your point or what you are trying to say with your reply.

    Wow.all of you people that are so into a fictional CHARACTER…… Each and every one of you act as though you are on first name basis with MM. You cannot forget he is an actor; which means he can act anyway, anytime he wants. Acting innocent at this time would be to his advantage. I still say that if he was innocent, he would have already been defending himself. I still say all the bashing of the young lady, shame on all of you. Whether you know it or not, there is not one of any of us that know…but why make a young lady feel as though she is the ONLY guilty one here. And like a couple have said……how would you feel if it was your daughter/sister?

    Beth, because it is so easy for these people to sit anonymously behind their computers and spout venom.

    What a sad, sad country we live in. Witch hunts, lynching, ethnic cleansing, etc. Nothing ever changes. Jump to conclusions without the facts … that’s America. :-(

    This is so out of hand. If there were any irreplaceable actors on Y&R, and I am opposed to that general idea in the first place, MM would not be one of them. If you don’t like the show, or if you only like because of certain actors, then don’t watch. Enough already.

    I just wanted to set the record straight about some people’s statements that Y&R is losing viewers. As for me, it is true that I have almost 100% tuned out, and I think many of us agree that the show is in trouble creatively and qualitatively. However, Y&R’s viewers have surged. Daily viewers for the 4th quarter of 2013 averaged above the 5 million mark, up 9% over the prior year. That’s pretty impressive and remarkable, given today’s daytime television landscape. I don’t like Y&R these days either, but let’s give credit where credit is due. Actually, the cynic in me wouldn’t be surprised if this scandal brought more pairs of eyes to this already popular show.

    Sharon Case is openly standing behind MM, if this story was actually true, do you think she would risk her job by doing so? She clearly does not think it right & wasn’t afraid to make i known. After fans became upset & outraged, saying they wouldn’t watch, Doug D tweeted & then deleted it wasn’t JFP fault. It was deleted cause MM could sue him & CBS for slander. Bell just said how great MM was, then changes her story. Put it together, this is a smear campaign so Y&R does not loose viewers!!!!

    I made an error myself! I included a fragment in my response. I should have said that it is saddening that English is in such a state of disrepair. I should stop before I make another error. I just wanted to get this posted before someone calls me out on my own grammatical error. :) Go soaps! (Is that another error? I can’t stop!)

    ”hate”?? lol
    some are like rabid dogs attracting a man, with no facts..

    I never seen anything like it, I think some boards need an in house psychiatrist, some do not seem right in the head..
    They have extreme tunnel vision, and are destroying a man without any of the facts, that is shameful., and a bit crazy to act like that…

    IF or when MM would be found guilty, then and only then, speak their hate .. Now is not the time to do it..

    If he is guilty, do you believe it can be linked to the actions by JC? Was MM groped by JC? I never knew about JC doing anything like that until I read what a few of her fans posted. They said her costars openly talked about her groping them on several occations. If that was stopped, this may have never happened. What’s your take on it?

    I guess you will finally be happy when that Michael is taken to court. You know what they say, “be careful what you wish for”.

    The whole thing is very sad, true or not.

    I feel like they need to regroup. Shutdown and start over with new actors, new stories, new title. So much for 40 years and 25 years at number 1. More drama behind the scenes than on the screen.

    This is really kind of pathetic. Now that we know why he was fired, people are still defending him? Even the female soap viewers?

    It’s important to not make assumptions about things we do not have all the facts about. First, if there wasn’t enough evidence to support his firing, it would not have happened. Second, issues of sexual harassment are taken very seriously. It’s important to remember that there should be ZERO TOLERANCE in the work place for it so for that, if this happened more than once YES he should have been fired weeks ago. However, they do have to investigate all claims before rendering a decision so unfortunately something inappropriate had to have taken place for him to be dismissed.

    I like the character of Adam he is a very complex and easily hateable/likable character. With that said MM has had issues in the past so let’s let Y&R figure this mess out and reserve judgement until the facts are released if they ever are.

    Why stop at the banner? They should see if Lisa Rinna is available to pester people in the street like she did when she wanted to get on the MELROSE PLACE reboot.

    Seriously, $785 could go a long way to a REAL cause. I can’t believe there are such stupid people in this world.

    What does MENSA have to do with a married man who allegedly groped someone?? Maybe he thought he was smart enough to get away with it!
