Robert Adamson Next Y&R Star To Defend Hunter King Against Social Media Cruel Comments!

The Young and the Restless Robert Adamson (Noah Newman) has joined the ranks of several of his castmates, who over the last few days  have gone on Twitter in defense of the attacks and comments made on Y&R cast member Hunter King (Summer Newman).

The cruel remarks continue and come as a result of the allegations that fired star, Michael Muhney (Adam) groped King’s breasts, which was one of the key reasons for his dismissal from the series.

Adamson’s tweet quoted world-renowned German psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, beginning with “@HunterHaleyKing “The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity.”

The actor then finished his tweet with a message to those on social media who have been cruel in their comments:  “The way my friend is being treated is appalling. No one deserves it less. I’m sure it feels safe behind this twitter veil to be callous and cruel, but every time Hunter handles these comments with grace, she simply shows her ability to tolerate the insecurities of faceless sycophants. ”

Seems very apparent that the Y&R cast is asking for some kindness and sensitivity towards the situation …  can we all just be respectful from here on out?  We only hope by bringing attention to Adamson’s tweet, and by people reading it and what others have said before that, it might make people think a minute before entering a tweet or posting a comment filled with vitriol and hatred toward another human being.

“…ability to tolerate the insecurities of faceless sycophants.” with all due respect… to the “supporters” of HK why not reach out to the fans… who’re reaching, in earnest… for.. what is going on behind the scenes… with the production of the once grand scheme of things… that Y&R ad nauseum dispels… #1 to come on… and entreat the fans to…. there’s so much more to this than “we” realize… not verbatim… but we can go their i think… it’s the demise of Y&R that is upper and foremost in our mindset. MM and HK will traverse their own path… without… Read more »

The person thinks he/she is some kind of intellectual. It’s a lot of big words to basically say that the show sucks and it will die if they don’t get better scripts.

To al those sending hate tweets to King, I say this: Every time you send a hate filled tweet you are just making Michael M look bad. Your trying to defend him, but your making yourself look aggressive, which he was accused of doing.
I don’t believe MM did this, Y&Rs actions show they were in fear of loosing viewers. So, tweet MM support, not King.

Yes, yes, and yes. And may I say MOST MM fans are doing what you suggest? In fact, many of them are as upset as the rest of us are for the mean spirited misplaced anger because, as you suggest, it makes not only MM look bad, it makes them (MM fans) look bad. I have been watching soaps since I was about twelve –which isn’t really something I should boast about. And in these last 35 years or so of being a soap watcher, I know there is s certain fringe element to soap fans. These are the ones… Read more »

It’s always sickened me how people feel safe to spew hate safely tucked away behind their computer. Even if the allegations were not true, it is none of our places to bash a person like Hunter with our comments. We are allowing social media to turn us into a society that spews negativity and hate no matter the cause or what side we stand on for the sake of being heard. Why? Because there are no consequences. It’s too bad that we can’t focus our finger pointing energy toward something positive. I don’t have the answers, but my stomach aches… Read more »

You have to understand internet bullies.. These people coming out in defense of Hunter is fuel for the fire.. When a bully can make you cry he/she will play for all it’s worth, and double their fun.. I am sure Robert Adamson thinks he doing Hunter good, it will just make a bigger target of her.. There is no pleading to internet bullies, doing this pleading to be nice to Hunter will only make them be worse to her.. It is best to let it fade away.. stop drawing attention to it and Hunter.. bullies love a weak target ..… Read more »

I am shocked and appalled that TMZ would publish the names of alleged victim of a sexual assault. Most media organizations — rightly so — have a policy of not identifying the victim in these cases.

To all these people who signed the Save Michael Muhney petition, how do you feel about that decision now? You ought to be ashamed of yourselves and get over yourselves while you’re at it.

@su0000 Cleaning out old magazines today and found July 29th 2013 SOD in it was a column Things we know and shouldn’t tell you. Seems this married actor is a little too friendly to the shows younger newcomers. They fired MM 6 months later now tell me again how serious this was that we sit on it for 6 months. I think MM was railroaded I hope his career can stand this just thought I would throw that out there.

Kory, where was it proven that MM was guilty ?? How about the fact that Y&R went to the extent of making up this LIE to make us hate MM just blew up in their face and now HK is paying for it…SO who’s to blame here ???

Maybe there is such a thing as “too much information”. Social media has brought about a huge change in the relationship between the entertainment industry and fans – namely instant feedback. Maybe entertainment industry personnel shoul be more careful about releasing behind the scenes information on social media. Everything does not have to be reported right away, or at all. The other point I would like to make is, “You reap what you sow!” Watching TV in general, I see a lot of instances where celebrities go on talk shows and say “whatever they please” ( that is within what… Read more »

Well said, Mr. Adamson! It is appalling how many people, especially women, are dragging King through the mud and defending Muhney when there is no official evidence or word of what happened between them. These commentors are setting a horrible example for being a soap fan and a human being.

Although I am disappointed that MM is no longer with the show, it is in no way the fault of Hunter King. MM himself reports that he brought this on himself. For those being cruel to this young lady should be ashamed of there inexcusable comments. If in fact this did occur, that makes her a victim and she should not be crucified in any way. I commend the cast od Y&R for there outpouring of support for HK.

Absolutely. People who were not there and have no first hand knowledge of what went on should remain quiet. The whole thing should never have been made public.

I had planned to continue watching Y&R at least until the end of the month but after seeing Conner’s Christening, what will happen in a very much in-your-face clue to what will unravel so after eighteen years I am done and at this point will miss the discussion boards more than what has sadly become of this once very enjoyable soap. Time to say goodbye!

Glad he’s one of the MANY cast mates to stick up for her. But I’m sure there are still people that will squawk that it’s all her fault.

Shameful.

I agree!

It’s not the fault of HK.

It is a shame that people are not considering the damaging effects JC’s groping had on the cast of Y & R.

They should all seek treatment paid in full by CBS and Sony.

Some fans are idiots…leave the girl alone…just because you like M.M. better than H.K. doesnt make him the innocent victim and her the guilty party…maybe he is innocent but we dont know that…both sides are innocent until one is proven guilty so unless you can prove which one is guilty and which one is innocent you really cant judge either one just because you like one more than the other…would you like to be judged the same way if this was you?

Here is an idea, put Summer on the back burner. Let this whole thing die down. If she is a victim of sexual harassment, she should take time away and receive counseling. Plus, story wise, until Phyllis comes back in one form or another, Summer really doesnt have much to do right now. Sharon isnt going to sing until Phyllis makes her. Once Summer’s paternity is revealed AGAIN, she will have a big story waiting for the actress.

Regardless of who you believe, it is not right to bully anyone. Only Two people know exactly what did or didn’t happen, and that’s where it should stay. If MM is innocent he should use all legal avenues to clear his name and if HK is telling the truth, she should also follow those same avenues to clear her name. I still think there is so much more going on here (but not our business), and I believe this whole thing was leaked by someone in JPs regime to take her off the hot-seat for letting MM go, and seeing… Read more »

Good for him and all of Hunter’s co-stars showing her some love and support during this treacherous time to be involved in such a public form….Kudos to cast. Wish we could hear from Michelle Stafford on her thoughts and support but I could see her staying out of the line fire, but curious about her thoughts. My next question is why haven’t we heard support from anyone in higher ups as JFP, Steve Kent, AngMcD? I know they might be in much more difficult situation but they are involved and it’s out there in social media now and Hunter’s castmates… Read more »

My guess is that they are embarrassed because this matter should have been kept confidential with only the people you mentioned knowing who the actress was. The fact her name got out suggests one of them blabbed to someone who blabbed to someone else– I think if any of them were to comment now it would only add fuel to the fire. It is obviously they supported her because they fired MM, just too bad they didn’t protect her identity better, hopefully they are doing something better the scenes to help her cope with the backlash that they should have… Read more »

This has turned into a circus.
The cyber bullies are having a great time..
The reason HK is being hit on is because of these people coming out to defend her.. They are setting her up as a target doe the bullies to play with.
Bringing her into the internet via the pleading posts to leave her alone, is making her bully bait..
In fact they are throwing HK to the bullies by their defending actions..

Unfortunately we live in a world filled with unkind and hateful people, who would never say those things to her face, but feel free to do it on Twitter etc. However, you can’t stop people from being jerks if that is their choice. I blame whoever leaked this story in the first place. These things should have stayed confidential– and without context on how and when things took place all kinds of scenarios have come forth, from her making it up to give JFP a reason to fire MM to MM being a malicious sexual pervert. All fans needed to… Read more »

Well, I think Adamson is perfectly adorable here and really is coming off as the protective big brother. And speaking of brothers, is it me? Or does he look like he could be Joey (Matt LeBlanc) from “Friends” little brother? All I want is for Adam to leave Y&R on a high note. I don’t want a recast but I also see no way MM can come back. I doubt he wants to come back. Here is what I would like to see story wise–I want Adam to be vindicated of Cordelia’s death and I want all the characters to… Read more »

I only hope that all of those who have spewed their hatred toward both Michael Muhney (for an alleged act) and Hunter King (for allegedly reporting said act) realize that all of this is based on an anonymous post that was left on Soaps.com. Whomever wrote the post, stating that they “personally” knew this happened, didn’t have the guts to put a name or even an identity to themselves, and TMZ picked this up and ran, full tilt, with it, spreading it all over the Internet, which fans and haters both picked up and ran with as well. Both Ms… Read more »

IF this allegation is true or just alleged;
The whole thing is weird..
Two men and a woman in a room together relaxing between scenes and one man gets up and grabs the woman’s boob in front of the other man, too weird..

I can not wait for the whole story to come out..
What is true or false ??

I am so sorry for what both are suffering through..

And again may I state that when Mr. Muhney gave his exit interview, he didn’t say he’d brought this on himself, meaning a sexual harassment charge. He stated he has always been outspoken. Fans knew that, as has the show. If he had been such a “problem,” why was he there for five years, then asked to re-sign for another two years just this past 2013? Seriously, there’s a LOT more to this story than anyone’s letting on, and it’s not that he grabbed some young girl’s breasts… wolfy PS — My opinion? Muhney stepped on someone’s toes by speaking… Read more »

Which everything “out there”, this is my personal feelings only and not speaking but myself but I happen to believe the allegations. MM has had God complex for a longtime and could (yes I said could not as if fact) be his downfall in this circumstance.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
