GH’s Steve Burton Asks Fan Factions To Stop Inciting Bashing And Hatred

Photo Credit: JPI StudiosAs we know, sometimes the Twitterverse can get very ugly.  And over the last month, passionate fan bases of General Hospital have let their voices be heard.  However, some have taken it to a level that has been negative towards the actors who are portraying a storyline, or popular fan bases insulting each other.

Stemming from the big reveal that Steve Burton is the true Jason Morgan, and Billy Miller is now playing his twin brother, Drew, with the love of both men’s life, Sam (Kelly Monaco) caught in the middle, there has been an escalation in bashing on social media that has had all three actors have asking the fans to please be kind to their co-workers, and to each other, and to stop the hatred.

Steve Burton took to his Twitter account and said: “Please stop. There is no ill will with @kellymonaco1 or . We are a team of actors telling a story. We are a team delivering the story we are given. No hate. No fan wars. We we one.”

Meanwhile over Thanksgiving, Kelly Monaco posted:  “Hey @GeneralHospital fans, maybe you didn’t hear us. We #choosekindness. #billymiller and I appreciate any support but not at the expense of our costars. #killywithkindness #HappyThanksgiving #letsallplaynice #gh

So, can we all just enjoy the ride of this rollercoaster of a storyline. and respect the fantastic talents of all three actors involved, and if we have a difference of opinion, and it’s not the way we want a pairing or reveal to go, express ourselves in a way that does not hurt anyone’s feelings? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comment section below.

It’s pathetic how some people act. First they think the actors really are the characters. “I can’t believe X did that. I hate X.” Well X is a character and the actor is playing a role. And a writer is writing things. There’s nothing wrong with liking a show and rooting on a storyline but some people truly can’t separate real life from a tv show

Why can’t fans just watch the show and keep the hatred to themselves. We are very lucky to still have a show to watch. I grew up watching Several that are gone now. I am thankful for the shows left. I am an old woman now and these shows are a connection to my past and give me comfort watching them.

See, that’s just the thing, Julie ( with all due respect)…..I find no hatred. ….not on these sites, anyway….As for myself, I never use the word ‘hate’….such a harsh, inhuman concept for me. Yes, admittedly, many do use the word….but, from what I’ve read so far, the loathing is directed towards the characters—the part the actors/actresses play. I am somewhat baffled here. Is the “hatred” of which you speak on Twitter? I do not see any here. ….glad I’m not on Twitter. It must be, …..I see many names I do not recognize. In that case, I will keep anything… Read more »

I just wish they would have let Billy Miller be the Real Jason Morgan for the kids’ sake. That way Sam would’ve had her 2 kids, and then Jake also would be the full brother. Now they have it where Sam has Danny and Jake with Steve Burton, and Scout with Billy Miller.

I kinda agree with you but gotta keep things interesting at the same time which they have definitely succeeded at. Also Jake is Jason and Elizabeth’s son but yes I feel bad for everyone involved especially the kids it will be difficult for them to understand. No matter who Sam finally decides to be with in the end, the other man with have to be okay with the other brother still being a part of their lives because she now has a child by each brother.

I personally have been watching since 1979. There should be no shock at the outcome of who turned out to be Jason Morgan; however, Billy Miller.is a huge asset to GH and I’ve enjoyed his time on the show. Here’s hoping for great story lines for all of them for as long as we are lucky to have them all. The chemistry between Steve, Billy, and Kelly cannot be ignored.

But honestly Diana, that’s the problem. Read what you wrote – “for the kids’ sake” GH is a soap opera. Kids all have different parents. Look at Sonny’s kids. Look at Alexis’ kids. Look at Liz’s kids. Who cares who is the parent of Danny, Jake, and Scout. They’re characters, they’re not real people.

I agree, this is insanity. How on earth does such a thing happen? That is, how does the merger between fiction and reality occur in the frontal lobes of the brain? Is this a psychological disorder of some kind? I figure these new sub soap groups are casualties of the equally absurd Liaison vs Jasam wars. Perhaps the insanity will subside when Jason and Drew bond as brothers. Billy Miller is coming alive and finding his footing with his Drew character. His old spark is back. If any of you Killy or JaSam fans are reading this, just relax and… Read more »

As a long term observer of human behavior, I knew Twitter was going to be more trouble than it was worth, when they first rolled it out. There’s a reason the Devil still does not have a Twitter account. Or Facebook either, for that matter. And as far as the hatred from the fan bases…. not sure where it’s coming from. Jason & Drew seem to be in a “better place” with each other, and will likely be working together to solve the mysteries of their mutual “lost years”. Sam seems genuinely conflicted – and who the Hell wouldn’t be,… Read more »

You need to grow up too and stop referring to yourself as satan. While you may well be one of his ambassadors on earth, you aren’t him.

It is a very sad state when actors need to remind viewers that they are workers, portraying characters, telling fictional stories. The amount unbridled hateful rage and vitriol being unleashed in this country is shameful. How far down the road to de-civilization we are headed?

We have a war between OLTL fans and GH fans that is still ongoing today. All of these are incited by TPTB and fans need to get smart and stop taking the bait.

Jeez—the way I’m reading this is that there are a bunch of people who really are infantile.

Why go down to being hateful to each other over a freakin’ story???

Guest

Hey, James,
Right? Anyway, back to the Jason/Drew saga, LOL………Has Jason sought Dr “Andre” for selfish reasons? If Drew’s memories can be ‘reinstated’ , the field would be left wide open– to chase Sam, that is.
In doing so, there would be the chance for Drew to remember another woman in his life ( Kim or someone else?) he loved passionately, and voila’, bye-bye Sam?
I am not as vested in Sam’s relationships as other fans……not a long-time watcher. This story could go either way. I really don’t care. But, gee….poor Billy!!

Oh Celia, I agree. Speaking of which, did you see that buddinsky Carly on Monday trying to undermine Drew & Sam under the guise of love? “Oh, poor Jason, no one has thought about what he’s lost. Everyone just feels sorry for Drew”. IS SHE FOR REAL? She and Sonny and Spinelli and Diane and Robin all turned their backs on Drew the SECOND Jason turned up. The only one on Drew’s side is Sam.

Steve is a MAN! He has the guts to confront the haters! Having opinions is why we are here, agree or disagree. But what the man said is true, these are actors acting out what is written for OUR entertainment value and their compensation and love of the art. We can root for couples but dont be cruel. Steve is a good guy. Most any soap star is fan friendly and charitable. Think about your words before you type them, they are entertainers, real people with real feelings. God bless Steve, Kelly and Billy!

Love having Steve back and the storyline is riveting. The writers will eventually bring the twins close and it will be epic. As a fan, what have the writers done to Sam? She is NOT this sappy a&(ed wimp they are writing her to be now. Please give her the back bone and toughness the fans all love about her. That’s what I care the most about, not what man she chooses, although I would like to see her with Jason, eventually.

Steve Burton is such a class act. I really like Billy Miller. I think he is a great actor, very much like Steve Burton, and just as charismatic and handsome. Honestly, I would like to see the brothers come together and unite-as friends. I am not a fan of Sam, I never have been, but I am able to separate Sam Morgan from Kelly Monaco. My dislike of the character does not flow into hatred for the actress. Some people are just ignorant and hateful!

I don’t understand cowards hiding behind twitter to spew their hate.

I love that Steve Burton (the real Jason) is back. I watched Jason and Sam on the docks on Tuesday’s episode. The chemistry between them sizzled. It’s a testament to the acting skills of Steve Burton and Kelly

I absolutely love General Hospital. I also love the storyline. I’m always glued to the TV when it’s on. People need to understand that it’s fiction. Drew and Jason make great viewing.

General Hospital writers are brilliant. They write the unexpected.
Keep up the great , intriguing story. I LOVE YOU ALL

Me too. Grew up watching soaps as a little girl with my aunt after school. Gh, amc, oltl, doctors, y&r, and others. I miss the meet and greats with the actors. I was so upset when Steve Burton left. There is only one stone cold. But was so happy to hear Billy Miller was going to play Jason. Watched him on amc, and y&r. Their loss our gain. But now with both of them on gh. Yay. We have never had disrespectful fans so let’s not start now.

I, too, would like the bashing to stop. These are paid actors that are doing their job…quite well, I might add! I would also like a brotherly bond to develop between the twins, regardless of who wins Sam’s heart.

If a fictional story on a fictional tv show has people so very upset and mean towards other maybe they should switch the channel to the real world to see how much better things are in “Port Charles” then they are every where in actual life. I too have watched this show for just about the length of time its been on starting at age 10 when home from school recovering from a serious car accident…mom and I started watching it together and even after she passed away I kept up with it for her. The characters are not always… Read more »

Thank you, Steve, for saying something. You’re all wonderful actors just doing a job and providing us fans entertainment. We may not like a particular character or something a character does, but that doesn’t mean we need to bash the actor playing the role. Regardless of entertainment purposes, General Hospital is a business. Every decision in every character is a business decision, though some people don’t understand that or seem to forget that. I remember the days when Bobbie Spencer repeatedly tried to break up Scotty and Laura. Fans hated her! Now they love her and Jackie Zeman. Same with… Read more »

Thanks for all the good times p.s. I got my fingers crossed for Sam and Jason and Drew and Kim

As an avid watcher of GH, I am disappointed that fans would bash the actors. This is a story. The actors are perfect. I love therm all. The chemistry is phenomenal. Let’s not read more into it.

You are so right, T….and so is Steve. But, as humans and avid fans we lose focus and sight……I am one of the culprits. The same thing should apply when certain posters bash/attack other posters, as you well know, my dear Timmmy…..the actors/actresses are not the only people who should be respected…….so should we, the fans, the loyal fans. I think this should apply to all….yeah, even the President…. I will try my best not to step on actors’/characters’ feelings. But, it is soooo hard not to ‘bruise’ Sonny—-not Maurice—Sonny, the infinite paragon of all things decent and good. How’s… Read more »

C…a lot of us know the show isnt real nor are the characters…but we seem to complain about them as if they are real and that shows how well a soap involves the viewers and thats what they were meant to be and do…a second world outside our own…where we for an hour or more five days a week can go so we can step away from our real lives and problems and get involved on the ‘real lives’ of our second family-soap characters-and try to fix their lives and solve their problems to make us feel better in bad… Read more »

Exactly, Jimmy!!!!!! We do become attached to certain characters, thus we champion them. I love Billy Miller, but I must cofess I did say on a number of occasions, I have a hard time understanding him when he speaks…..same goes for Kelly. Sometimes between the two of them, I have to strain my neck closer to the set to understand their( what seems to sound like) mumbling. It does not mean I h*te them. I do not loathe Maurice, either, but Sonny represents the most degenerate worm on earth. I can’t say that?? Yes, for some it is an escape… Read more »

@Jimh….As always, you’ve provided perspective in your own charming and inimitable fashion! Of course, soaps can offer us refuge from the daily trials and tribulations of life, but most of us have the ability to separate fact from fiction and fantasy from reality once an episode ends….we recognize what’s make-believe and don’t get overly- invested in matters regarding people who don’t actually exist! Just as when we gather here to share and compare our thoughts on the latest happenings in soapville, it’s intended to be a pleasant, momentary break from our own unique human experiences, yet when it’s taken too… Read more »

Tell me about it, CeeCee! Like yourself, I totally eschew the social media madness, but just the wholly-unacceptable antics we’ve both experienced here are enough to tell you that some individuals have absolutely no shame or scruples when it comes to the insidious means they will employ to advance their own agendas, and it should never be allowed to go that far. Personally speaking, I’ve too often—and extremely recently—literally had words put in my mouth that I’ve never scripted and been assigned thoughts and emotions which did not emanate from my own heart and mind by certain persons seeking to… Read more »

Admittedly, it is wrong to ‘cut down’ actors, but I find nothing wrong with discussing the disgusting and untoward behavior of some of the characters. CHARACTER is key-word here.

I soooooooo agree Shay and Celia! We certainly DO know from whence all the trouble emanates…and the many faces of Eve. Believe me, many know…not just those with unfamiliar names that pop up out of the blue to bash along with you. See now, if the Eve you’re insinuating was truly “Eve” then there’d be a lot of bashing the other way around. But there isn’t, is there?

Great points, Celia! I echo your sentiments on the Sonny and Carly fiasco that has sadly endured on GH far too long… I will be a critic of that omnipresent storyline as long as I am present! And, like you, I am not on FaceBook or Twitter (although years ago, I was briefly on FB). I don’t criticize those who enjoy FB; I am sure it serves a great purpose for many… But it’s not for me, and I witnessed the insensitivity and destructiveness that have permeated social media. I have seen the loss of privacy, hurt feelings, dysfunction, and… Read more »

Merry Christmas to everyone. It’s nice we’re all kind of getting along again. I was thinking of what a genius DR Seuss was. Because no matter how bad things get, no matter what Grinches are out there trying to ruin your Christmas, Christmas still comes. That’s the miracle of Christmas and the miracle of humanity. It (Christmas) always comes through. Yes, Virgina, there is a Santa Clause. I really hope 2018 proves to be a better year. Speaking for myself, 2017 was a horrid year. It can only get better from here.

I don’t understand this juvenile behavior. I’ve watched GH since it began over 50yrs ago and storylines have always been convoluted, and not only on GH, I’ve also seen Wally Kurth and other GH soap actors I won’t name, on other soaps while scrolling thru channels. They’re actors playing roles…not the actual characters they play. This is nuts!

I think Steve Burton, Kelly Monaco and Billy Miller appreciate their fans sticking up for them and their characters but their job is to entertain people and not to incite hatred or even threats.So if Kelly, Steve and Billy start to feel like they are inciting hatred it could cause them to maybe not be so open with fans going forward.

I have been watching this soap since I was in high school many years ago. Lots of changes and storyline have come and gone. And do not recall angry fans. So please stop there is enough ugliness in this country let’s not ruin something fun to watch. Respect all on the show. Thank you

I have always loved Steve as Jason and was saddened when he left to persue other things. I am so happy he is back. I absolutely loved It when I heard billy was coming. He is a fantastic actor whether he is Jason or drew. I.T doesn’t matter. I have my preference as to who I think kelly should be with but to be mean and disrespectful towards these actors is horrible. They put out every day for us to enjoy and this is how we repay them? Let’s enjoy the show and when it’s over go on with our… Read more »

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Photo: ABC

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be Back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
