Cast members of Hunter King’s (Summer) of The Young and the Restless came to the defense and showed their support for the talented young actress via a series of tweets today which began when Brandon, whose handles is @DaysAddict, tweeted, “Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @hunterHaleyKing? Thanks!”
Once that tweet went out, several of King’s castmates jumped on board to show their support of the actress who has been at the receiving end of much negativity since TMZ reported that fired Y&R star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) fondled her breasts on two occasions, which was noted as one of the main reasons for his dismissal.
Greg Rikaart (Kevin) told it like it is by responding to this offensive tweet about Hunter:
“@TraceySproul: @HunterHaleyKing isn’t she the whore that got MM fired?” Be very careful, lady. That’s someone’s kid ur talking about.” The Daytime Emmy winning actor later responded to this as well! “ @TraceySproul: if you can show me Greg, reports were made from the incidents, I will apologize.” Greg responded with “Not my business any more than it is yours.”
Christel Khalil (Lily) response to the original tweet in support of Hunter responded this way: “
@DaysAddict: Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR” LOVE U HUNTER!
To say that it is not kind to name call people very offensively is an understatement, especially given the fact that those who were not involved in the real life drama do not know the details. That being said, what do you think about the Y&R actors show of support for Hunter King and the lashing she has taken on the Internet? Weigh-in!
