The Young and the Restless Michael Muhney (Adam) is speaking out again and this time on online bullying!  In a new interview with Soaps.com,  which was initiated with Muhney due to an incident involving the actor and a person on Twitter, we learn that the hating didn’t stop there, but also spilled over on to the Soaps.com messages boards! Muhney reveals during the chat why the issue of bullying is so personal and important to him, as well as rooting and helping the underdog in any cause that is close to his heart or where he sees injustice  Here is an excerpt below!

Muhney on having no trouble speaking out against something he believes in: “I speak out against systems that I think are broken, whether it be the Emmy process, actors that I feel that were overlooked, or voting polls – all that kind of stuff.  I’m a huge proponent for the NOH8 campaign and gay marriage. I  just sympathize with people who are being bullied.  What’s interesting is that as a grown man, father, and professional, I’m speaking out about some things that could get fixed and it’s causing some bullying.  I knew that speaking out would make me a target, but it doesn’t mean I won’t fight back.”

Make sure to check out the whole interview, and then let us know what you think about social networking and the media and misusing communication with people in the public eye, or simply against each other on a cyber platform!
