117 January 9th, 2014 Michael Muhney Fans Take To The Sky Via Banner Over CBS In Protest Of Axed Star!

Courtesy/TMZ

Fans of Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) delivered what they had promised with a special note across the sky in protest of his dismissal from the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless!

The fan group who raised money via facebook raised over $785 for an aerial banner which was flown today over CBS Studios in West Hollywood, where the soundstages that make the town of Genoa City are located, in other words, where the series is shot.

The banner simply stated: “#TEAMMUHNEY SUPPORTS MICHAEL MUHNEY” and ended the statement with a heart.  TMZ.com who has been following the story over the last several days, has this attached snapshot from the aerial display but also indicated that the fan group should have flown the banner over CBS Studios in Studio City, where the main executives are!

What do you think about the aerial banner display?  Do you think this helps Muhney’s cause?  Are you glad the Muhney fans took some action and made this happen?  Comment below!

    the writing stinks! in Genoa City… how dull, tired, and disinterested Y&R is

    hey, we all can’t be good writers – just saying… whomever, helms the production team

    it’s simply time… for JFP to celebrate her status and reign us all in… with something

    after January, 2014…

    Genoa City… will look like a morgue – so much dead weight to fester and languish with Victor… self-preservation, wasted

    How stupid. How many people even know who Micheal Muheny is? If I wasn’t Y&R viewer who already knew about the scandal from being online I would have though that banner was talking about some type of sports team pumping one of it’s special players, or a family supporting one of it’s kids.

    ICAM. I don’t watch Y&R myself and am only aware of the MM situation because it’s been discussed on boards for another soap I do watch. Otherwise I’d never have heard of the guy.

    MM fans didn’t do themselves or him any favors calling more attention to a very touchy workplace sexual harassment situation.

    I think it was a awesome statement from the fans of Michael Muhney. A wonderful way to show support for a man that has been declared guilty of something awful without any confirmation from anyone involved. He is loved by so many Y&R fans. It’s a nice way to thank him for the years of passion he put into the Adam Newman character. He should have been the future of the show. No one can replace him when it comes to that character. I for one will stop watching when his last scenes air on 1/30. Seriously best actor on the show. I am gonna miss him. Find something fast Muhney!

    I agree with you 100 percent Lizzie. He is Adam Newman in the part. No one can come in and claim the role as his own like MM has. I also happen to like Hunter King in her role as Summer and have no reason to dislike her. He has not been declared guilty and I am tired of hearing that he’s guilty by his peers. Thank goodness that Sharon Case made the video tribute and that Peter Bergman has not made a statement. That just shows their class. I am also not going to watch when he leaves the show. I’m sure that we’ll be hearing of a better show having him grace their cast.

    I checked online to see the costs involved with a banner being made and flown. No idea how it was done for under $800.00 as most cost is closer to $2,000 for a private plane to fly a banner. Fuel costs alone are over $300.00. Also, where is the plane. TMZ may have posted this photo from a tweet photo. Where is the plane in in the photo, not seen. A sky background could be even a piece of poster board. So, did anyone actually SEE this banner flying over the GC studios at CBS? That would make it valid. Otherwise, it’s a hoax. Just saying.
    Despite the emotional reactions of MM’s fans, I have to seriously wonder what this banner achieved, if it did indeed fly over LA The Muhney’s won’t have seen the banner, MM isn’t there at the studios now. He could be all involved now with other ventures and not looking back at all.
    For all the good intentions, personally, a fund drive to support MM’s Pancreatic Cancer Run in LA would have had more of an impact on reaching MM to let him know of continued support.
    No matter what he does in the future, the fan base that he will maintain, banner or not, will be supportive.

    Wendy, If you see my post below you will see that MM fans DID also donate to his pancreatic cancer fund, and breast cancer fund (his Aunt was just diagnosed), in addition to the banner, and T-shirts, and bracelets. Oh, and the plane WAS real. There is actual video of it too! You will see it if you look online by tomorrow I am sure. I have seen it today. Michael’s fans who live locally in LA, also turned out to view the banner and film in front of CBS studios.

    We want Michael to be exonerated and believe he will be. We want him to know of our support. We do know that he is being informed of our activity and the banner.

    Well it is obvious TMZ’s investigation skills suck because we raised $1230 for the banner. There were 62 people that contributed to the banner. The banner flew exactly where it was suppose to fly and that is over the studio where it was suppose to fly.. The execs we wanted to see it were JFP & Angelica the 2 that work at 7800 Beverly Blvd. Hollywood and let this situation get out of hand, plus all the cast members that are afraid of losing their jobs and turned their back on him. You can bet you $$ it flew exactly where it was meant to fly! You can also bet your money the execs saw it because they were onsite today.

    Do you not have a loved one in need? A family member? A friend? Do you not see homeless people every day? Is your life that void and empty that you would spend your hard earned money on a person who earns 6 figures a year? Anjelica and other execs are laughing at you right now. They dont give two hoots how many banners you fly. And bragging up from 785 to 1230 does NOT make you sound better.

    I think the banner was a wonderful way for the fans to display their support for Micheal Muhney in a big way! I think that it shows their appreciation of Muhney’s acting talent and with that, yes, it helps to remind Y&R/CBS/Sony and future employers that this actor is well loved and has a tremendous following! I am proud of the Muhney fans to make this happen, as I am one of the supporters as well. This man is a class act, with all the negative press lately, he has kept his composure and respect for himself, his family, his fellow co-workers, his friends and his fans. We could all learn from his example how to treat others nicely! I am proud to be one of his many fans!! #TeamMuhney

    agree with you Christy: “…it helps to remind Y&R/CBS/Sony and future employers that this actor is well loved and has a tremendous following! ”

    A tremendous following… oh geez! I can’t believe how stumped I feel about his being let go

    one cannot express how obvious it was to reel Michael Muhney and Billy Miller… and should have been the herald…. nu Victor and nu Jack… with formidable TALENT…. just in awe, stunning, fascinating,

    which is why we watched for decades… it was like the nuKINGS were about to threshold and take their rightful place… as thee LEADS

    and, it’s ALL gone, kaput! poof! just like that…. ???

    what’s the point…..

    thee remaining cast are aligning themselves as team players.. because? they have so much faith in JFP… new regime? that it’s been 1 1/2 years since she took over… and we’re left with ??? nothing works

    I have to add in how much I still love Amelia Heinle and Sharon Case… the two reigning queens without

    say what one will about fan loyalty…. the writing is not their.. I’ve gone so far as to say… it’s so bleak.. their is no foundation from which to build.. it’s empty

    it’s too stunning a turn of events the downfall

    Mr. Michael Muhney… I wish you the best… in your pivotal career…

    you were absolutely… instinctual… this is from Eric Braeden’ victor :

    “…It was Muhney who wanted to get me off the show and he expressed that to various people. He wanted me off the show because he wanted to be head honcho. In his words, I was the old lion and he was the young lion. He wanted to push aside the old lion.”

    the thing that Eric Braeden needs to realize… he is not as beloved as the Y&R production would lead us to believe… it’s not like he’s….

    Alice and Tom Horton – DAYS
    Adam, Palmer, Phoebe – AMC
    all the stalwarts with character… on all the Serials that existed

    the writing has done nothing to endear his character… GOD… he has to rely on MTS, Nikki… and i have to bet… these two only connect for their jobs… it’s painful to watch Victor and Nikki… just dust them off and fade

Not easy asking strangers after X-mas to donate in hopes of this happening but, we did it! MM has A LOT of fans who rally behind him & TPTB really messed up here up here BIG time!

    So that makes 2 planes at $785 each.

    I said it before, guilty or innocent, what a gigantic waste of good, hard earned money. To each individual their own, but this is a person getting fired from their job. No different from you or I. Would this person go to such lengths to get you back your job? I’d bet the money of 4 skywriting planes he would not. I seriously have concerns over these people going to such lengths for such a ridiculous, nonsense cause. Do some real good, even honor the actor (if you must) in a way that gives back to your community or the world, but this is just money down the drain….or up in the sky as the case may be.

    Get a hobby people.

    I agree with you Jules. Normal folks whether just changing jobs, or being fired is no one else’s business. This has gone beyond the delusional right that fans think they have to know the details of a man’s work life. Personally, it seems the familiarity of fans through social media with celebrities borders on these fans thinking they know the person. But they have the right to know the details of their lives. If a celeb. is willing to share details, it is up to the celeb. and certainly not to be demanded from. . It all rather bizarre. Plus it’s really the advertisers who support the continuation of any TV syndicated show year after year. Plus the future plans of Sony for how they wish their studios to ‘look’ for the TV viewers may not include Daytime Dramas for too many more years. Talk shows & reality shows have taken over many time slots. Fans maybe think they drive the show’s success, but the dynamic is the fans are just that, fans, who do indeed support in many ways the actors efforts. But the actors also do not work for fans directly, they work for their families to support them or their own lives and to pursue their creative, artistic profession. Just as most working adults do. We really need to take celebs off the visible pedestals they seem to be place on by fans, ie. they can do no wrong – think of Bieber fans here, and realize they are just doing their best in a difficult job with lots of others.

    I totally agree with Jules.

    People being added to soaps and people leaving soaps happens all the time. I am an AMC fan that has started to watch Y&R. The fans of Y&R should be happy your soap is still on TV. The fans of AMC and OLTL have lost their soaps twice and never got an ending. There was a reason MM was fired. MM is a great actor and was liked by fans so it had to be something really bad for him to get fired. MM has never come out and said he was being treated unfairly…that should tell you something. The best thing you can do for MM is to quit talking about it and let people forget. Use this energy you have to do something that adds value to our world.

    Jules replied

    Right on Kate! An actor doesn’t make a show, and without questions, MM didn’t make Y&R. If you watched for an actor, then you were never a fan of the show. You were a fan of the actor. Follow him as he moves onto other things and don’t concern yourself with the show anymore at all. It’ll go on, business as usual. That’s JMO.

    deb replied

    See folks are entitled to spend their own money how they want and because this did not HARM anyone why should you care???? Muhney fans wanted to show the actor they support him; they not only did the banner but also donated to organizations that he is a supporter off. Good for them for not abandoning an actor based on RUMORS that NO ONE has officially stated are FACTS.

    Reply

    Jules replied

    I believe I did say “to each individual their own”.

    Truthfully, I don’t care. It’s their money to wholly and pathetically waste. But to say “Good for them for not abandoning an actor”, quite frankly, I am so amused at a statement like that. Such strong words for such an insignificant and irrelevant occurrence. Do these people have no where else to offer such strong investments? None? I think you and others are paying someone far too much respect to anyone you don’t know or knows you deserves. Not because he did or didn’t do something. I honestly don’t know and I have no horse in this race to make a call either way. But because all he did was perform a job that provided entertainment. It’s not worth any kind of fight WHATSOEVER.

    Proud to be part of Team Muhney. It may not get his job back but we showed him and the idiots in charge at CBS that he had a huge loyal following. Firing him was the biggest mistake in recent memory and as a result YR will be losing so many viewers that their time as No 1 is limited. This also shows his unprofessional co-workers that we have his back. At this point all allegations are rumors. I’m done with this show after 40 years of loyal viewership.

    In the words of the immortal MAB, I’m a fan of Michael Muhney, the actor, not the person. But unlike her, I don’t know him. Michael delivers where it counts, with the fans. His character is dark, it’s not so shocking to me that the actor playing him isn’t perfect. If the airplane stunt made him feel better, it served a purpose. I just want him to be able to pick up and go on from here. As for Y & R, if they don’t hire more talented actors and stop telling the fans how great Jason-er, Dylan is I won’t be watching because there is nothing there any longer for me to see.

    I am thrilled and proud to be part of the Michael Muhney movement showing support for Michael by contributing to have this banner fly and show how we feel. We are from different walks of life and circumstances and have come together united in our wish to have Michael Muhney returned to Y&R as the one and only possible Adam Newman. We have also joined forces and contributed toward the prostate and breast cancer funds and charities that Mr. Muhney supports. I am a professional with a full-time job who just happens to be from Wisconsin, which is also the fictional location of Y&R. I have watched Y&R since the beginning and no matter which state I lived in, I always felt at home watching Y&R. Sadly, if Michael Muhney is not brought back to Y&R there will be a mass exodus of us long-time fans after January 30th, which is Michael’s last air date. February sweeps will be swept right under the rug for Y&R and CBS when we make our lack of presence known. We believe Michael will be exonerated. The truth is already beginning to come out thanks to several “in the know” articles that are surfacing. Thank goodness for that. It wasn’t right this RUMOR was brought forward in the first place, involving either party. Certainly a young woman’s name shouldn’t have even been mentioned or associated with it regardless of her involvement. Michael will be proven innocent. We can only hope Y&R, CBS, and Sony will make this right and bring Michael Muhney back as Adam Newman!!!

    So what happens if all “rumors” are true about MM? Will a banner be flown over CBS saying OOPS, Sorry Hunter!

    All you “fans” supporting this sick individual need to sit down and stop insulting all the other cast and crew that have flat out stated YES HE DID SEXUALLY HARASS WOMEN ON SET. Victim blaming is NOT COOL! I am so disappointed in this fandom.

    Ummm which cast have stated this to be true????? It seems NO ONE not even the ALLEDGED “victim” have stated anything official we know off. So please stop victim blaming Muhney by calling him sick without anything to back up your claims but a RUMOR. All we have heard from the cast is for folks to leave the actress alone and she should be left alone; but it does not mean folks should stop supporting Muhney based on a RUMOR.

    So you go take several seats yourself and let others do what they want with THEIR TIME AND MONEY. Hell, it takes time to come to a site and comment on others wasting their time doesn’t it.

    Too much time on your hands people! Would MM fly a banner over your former place of employment to support you! Seems more people are upset over this than the healthcare fiasco!

    Michael Muhney does such an AWESOME job in the role of Adam Newman! As a fan since day 1 I am SO disappointed in the loss of the
    BEST actors and actress this show has had. Unless Michael Muhney stays I will no longer watch after January 30th. It is sad for me because the show has been part of my daily routine! :(

    Personally, I think the message was lame, and should have been the message they originally were going to use, “no Adam without Muhney” or something to that effect. It doesn’t matter where it flew, so long as they showed it on TMZ, but I am positive Angelica’s hubby made that rude comment about it being the wrong studio.

    I support this 100% and thank everyone who contributed to make it happen along with the money given to the pancreatic cancer fund as well as the breast cancer one. I believe in “innocent until proven guilty” and I hate the way this has been handled by Sony and CBS. Both MM and HK have been treated horribly. It is just sad and this forever viewer will not be watching after MM has his last airing on January 30th. MM is the only reason that kept me watching because the rest of the s/l’s are beyond boring. This use to be a class show at one time. Just sad.

    I love how people convict him over a rumor without any proof, yet call others who believe him crazy. While I don’t believe anyone should blame the girl, either I feel anyone who blames either one is being unAmerican. I am an American, and I believe in “innocent till proven guilty.” The court of public opinion is a really crappy court, filled with idiot sheep with stones, people who call themselves Christians. THAT is what is DISGUSTING.

    Why do soap fans continue to embarrass themselves? Just when I think soaps have hit a new low I read about banners flying defending an accused pervert. The entertainment industry is laughing at soaps. How long until they are all off the air?

    I agree that people shouldn’t believe all the rumors they are hearing. I think there is a lot more to this story and the firing of Michael Muhney. Whatever the case my be, Y&R will never be the same again. They have lost the best actor on the show and possibly the best actor in television. If you didn’t know the name Michael Muhney before, you soon will. I’m sure he will go on and act in bigger and better shows. I loved the support shown for him by flying the banner and more importantly, so did his friends and family. What is with all this hate and finger pointing people?? I think you all should take a look in the mirror and see who the truly disgusting people are.

    @Tana.

    kudos to your post.

    I wholeheartedly, agree

    I’m going to celebrate… Michael Muhney… as Adam… until: January 30, 2014

    CBS, The Young and the Restless… is missing some serious ammo… TALENT

    all this hubub… whether .. fans need to know… or deserve to know… behind the scenes… is not unfounded

    it’s good PR for Y&R to try any thing… some thing… to bounce back… from what… will go down in history… and taint… “boring” #1 for 25 years in a row. ugh! we all know… as fans attest… the cast is coming out in droves… to LOL.. dispel any truths and “undo” their faltering… dead show…

    for all the good.. that Y&R has created for themselves… this year… under the helm… of JFP.. she can’t hide under a rock… after this… no stone unturned… till she reneges… the hurt… year 2013 has obliterated… what Y&R… team BELL has achieved

    Y&R is SO unrecognizable…

    the ratings… ie: the new years week ratings… has to be.. because of this unnecessary circumstance… OK.. i’ll take the heat… and is more to do… with catching MM in his last days… and Y&R funeral

    While flying a banner over CBS studios may have convinced Maria Arena Bell (or was it Lynn Marie Latham?) to bring back Daniel Goddard’s Cane, and Michael Muhney’s fans are being very supportive of him (which I understand, as I am a fan as well), I doubt that this is going to do anything to change JFP’s mind. She wants to bring in yet another of her cronies to the show to play the part of Adam (guaranteed, you wait and see!) and the outspoken Muhney is, sorry to say, out.

    While I doubt highly the rumors and speculation that have been flying about MM allegedly groping Hunter King in front of Max Ehrich (Fen), that whole story is based on an anonymous post on a soap web site, not actual fact.

    Muhney himself stated that he has been “outspoken” at times, so there’s a good chance he verbally stepped on someone’s toes, and that’s what got him fired, not that he did anything toward HK.

    And this story about Braeden saying MM wanted him fired … what a lot of hogwash! Anyone who’s read the tweets of both EB and MM will know that EB went to Twitter and badmouthed MM, fans reacted and MM was a gentleman about the whole thing, saying nothing, really, and asking that folks be respectful toward EB as he (Muhney) respected his co-worker. Later, EB apologized and praised MM as not only an actor, but as a co-worker. Considering EB was upset by MM’s firing, I don’t understand why he’s now taking this road of MM being such a jerk, unless it’s only to whitewash EB’s own reputation and personality (especially since fans don’t really care for Victor or his actions lately).

    My opinion on this whole mess…

    Yep…that fire-breathing Jill Farren Phelps will probably bring in one of her annoying and untalented cronies to play the role of Adam Newman. I wouldn’t put it past her. BLECH!!!!! Stupid woman.

    Michael Muhney fans need to wake up and smell the coffee. This is not “innocent until proven guilty.” He has been FIRED over what happened, meaning HE DID IT. Look at all of the Y&R cast members on Twitter who are implying or outright stating that he did it and that they don’t support him. Look at how many are defending the actress. You fans are delusional, and the way you are treating the actress is repulsive, but I guess it fits since you’re doing it in defense of a repulsive actor who groped a young woman. I feel very sorry for you that your interest in a character is preventing you from seeing what a vile person he is, and the hurt he has caused.

    I am happy they flew the banner in support of Michael Muhney. He is a leading actor with great presence, no one can compare to his acting on the soap. No one can ever replace him as Adam Newman. What a sad and unnecessary loss, shame on y&r for firing him, they lost the most interesting and memorable actor. They are going to lose a lot of viewers. It is a very sad day, i wish Michael all the best in the future and hope to see him in a better role where he is appreciated.

    I think that the fans did well to show their support. I think Adam is a great character and I think Michael should be kept on the show.
