Michael Muhney Axed From Y&R!

By SOD • Posted: Dec 17, 2013


Michael Muhney announced on Twitter that he has been released from the role of Adam on Y&R, which he has held since 2009. "I'm so sorry," he wrote. "It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R. My last day on set is this Thursday. My last air date will be Jan 30th. I'm going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am most concerned for their well-being…I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have. More details will follow... #xoxoxo"

Y & R'S MICHAEL MUHNEY FIRED FOR ALLEGEDLY
GROPING CO-STAR'S BREASTS

Michael Muhney, a big soap star who played Adam Newman on "The Young & the Restless" -- was fired last month after one of his co-stars complained to the brass that he grabbed her boobs -- on 2 occasions ... TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources connected to the show tell TMZ ... 38-year-old Muhney allegedly bullied and harassed 20-year-old Hunter King, who plays Summer on the show. She went to higher-ups and complained recently Muhney had fondled her breasts on 2 occasions -- and she said both were unsolicited and unwanted actions.

Sources tell us ... the new allegations were the proverbial "straw that broke the camel's back." Muhney -- who is married with 3 kids -- had been a problem on the set for a long time, allegedly bullying and harassing Hunter and others. He even admitted in a recent interview with HuffPost Canada TV after getting fired, "Sometimes I've walked around with a big backpack of hubris." Muhney's last show will air January 30th.

Muhney has been an extremely popular character on the show, and fans are threatening to stop watching.

Y&R seems to just be deteriorating at a rapid pace but unlike BM and MS, this is the first high profile fan fave actor that they CHOSE to get rid of...this was not MM"s choice and I think they will suffer the consequences.

They are having a party at SON, they hate him over there lol, I personally am indifferent. It will be interesting to see what happens if they recast, I do like that Y&R is making some BOLD moves.

What is going on??!!!! I haven't been the biggest fan of MM, but come on..........they are letting important people/roles fall by the wayside and now getting rid of one. This show will not be around much longer and if it is, there will be hardly anyone watching it. :frustration:

Oh no, Steve Burton is taking over the show and that proves my point...............the show is going down fast if SB is involved with the major s/l.

I really think YR losing Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford and Michael Muhney all in one year is going to hurt the show a lot.

I'm actually not. After watching JFP systematically destroy soaps for years most recently GH, I'm not shocked by anything that soap killer does. I stopped watching YR as soon as she was hired. Dismantling soaps is what she does.

Here comes another FOJ (Friend of Jill). smdh

To bad it wasn't Nikki, Victor, or NIck leaving! I stopped watching because these three add nothing to the show anymore! Just beating the same dead horse month after month!

Sorry but getting rid of the overrated diva is wonderful, IMO. I thought he sucked and the Delia storyline will sink even faster.

The big impact of this is SOC. They have made obnoxious attempts to cater to MM and with the end of Villy that forum will be deserted.

If they recast, I can see them bring in the guy who plated Johnny on G.H. I think he is a FOJ.
