The Young and the Restless star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who was reportedly fired for allegedly groping co-star Hunter King (Summer Newman), is breaking his silence as his fans staged their support in the sky on Thursday, RumorFix is reporting.
Michael tweeted on Monday, “Benjamin Franklin said it best, ‘Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see’ … and that quote doesn’t only apply to what is being said about ME. It also applies to others. Please be kind to everyone.
Fans have rallied around the soap hunk — they even chartered a plane on Thursday to send a message to CBS executives at Television City in Hollywood, where the daytime drama is taped.
After seeing the banner in the sky, Michael’s mom, tweeted, “This picture made me smile and brought tears. I am so touched by your support, loyalty and kindness to Michael.”
But many of Michael’s co-stars are standing behind Hunter.
Josh Morrow, who plays her dad, tweeted, “Some people better lighten up on @HunterHaleyKing Shes a great kid & doesn’t deserve any1 sayin anything negative about her #Ridiculous.” That was retweeted by several other Y&R stars including: Kristoff St. John (Neil), Jessica Collins (Avery), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) and Tracey E. Bregman.
Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), Christel Khalil (Lily) and Greg Rikaart (Kevin) and Eileen Davidson (Ashley) have also retweeted positive comments about Hunter.
