Michael Muhney

Angry Y&R Fans Plan Aerial Attack on CBS

EXCLUSIVE

0105_Michael-Muhney_tmz_compositeIt's a bird, it's a plane ... no, it's a flying banner paid for by "Young and the Restless" fans outraged at CBS for firing Michael Muhney.

Turns out a group of Y&R fanatics on Facebook pooled 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."

TMZ broke the story ... Muhney was fired last month for allegedly groping 20-year-old co-star Hunter King's breasts on 2 different occasions.  Muhney has allegedly harassed people on the set for a long time.

Y&R's plan is to retire the character and bring a new actor in to reprise the role of Adam Newman, but it's not sitting well with diehard fans.

Don't mess with soap fans.

Whatever    

Notice how silent his twitter been? Seems to me if he was innocent, he would be tweeted that or at least seeking the advice of an attorney. Maybe he is too busy out groping more women. Hope his wife beats his a##

These allegations have been reported on TMZ only. Neither the alleged victim or the alleged perpetrator have publicly acknowledged these allegations. No one from Sony, CBS or The Young and the Restless have publicly said a word to validate. ONLY TMZ ...WHERE THE HUSBAND OF Angelica McDaniel (of CBS) works. If it smells fishy...it probably is! There is a good chance that this poor young actress is being manipulated for soapy political reasons. Talk all you want about soap viewers...it's a big business. As is tabloid journalism!

I watch Young and Restless and I like the Adam Newman character .... but if the star who pays that role is going around grabbing the boobs of young women half his age, then he needs to be fired. Period.

How pathetic are people donating money to "save" a soap character?! A flying banner, yup, that is going to save his job. Lol. Soap characters and the actors are replaced or killed off all the time. People need to grow up, get over it and move on. I doubt these same Facebook douche bags would ever donate $ to a worthy cause

I don't believe he did it. The actress who plays Sharon whose name is Sharon Case made him a beautiful exit video. I do believe Hunter King took things far by making advances toward him. I know people who have met him and they say he is a very nice person. By the way he mentioned a female coworker who was making advances toward him and he said NO. He also mentioned that the guys on the set flirt with the girls but he is not into that stuff. Before you judge know the facts I too have been lied on name dragged through the mud for something I didn't do wait for the full story before you judge him.

Just stop insulting soap fans. They are loyal and will stick by their soaps and the actors until the story is proven true. So far it is all innuendo and until Mr Muhney admits to it or Sony, CBS states it is true they will stand by him. As more comes out things will change, but you have no right to call soap fans sleazy or stupid . They are the best fans in show business and deserve respect!

He probably did this himself. No way a bunch of soap opera addicted couch potatoes have extra money lying around to orchestrate a flyover.
