As previously reported, allegations that “'” groped a female co-star’s breasts, which is reportedly what led to his firing last month, made headlines over the weekend when got wind of the rumors spreading throughout social media and soap opera message boards several weeks back. In announcing his firing on Tuesday, December 17, Muhney used Twitter as his outlet of choice. Since then, he’s been virtually silent, at least until now.

In a tweet to his follower’s last night, Muhney stated, “Benjamin Franklin said it best, ‘Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see.'” To clarify for anyone who may have misconstrued his usage of the quote, the actor today added, “..and that quote doesn’t only apply to what is being said about ME. It also applies to others. Please be kind to everyone. #respect.”

    I just have no idea what to think at this point.

      Adam was the future of this show. He is the new Victor Newman when Eric retires. We will have no show now as the story lines are so boring as of late. The new writer seems to be changing the entire cast as well as not staying true to the characters. I’ve watched this show from Day One and it’s not the same show at all. The only thing that kept me watching was Adam. Now, there is no reason to schedule doctor appointments and errands around our favorite show. Victor and Jack have almost come to blows and now Victor and Adam…whose the real problem here? The egomaniac that refuses to memorize his lines and drives other actors crazy? Or Adam, who may have made a very bad mistake, if true, but can’t it be handled in a more humane way than firing a father of three just days before Christmas? Suspension without pay, a public apology? The entire cast and all the fans are split over this and something has to be done before it’s the end of it all. Maybe the success of the Number One Soap Opera for 25 years is not important. I will surely miss my friends at Y& R. It’s been a lovely ride.

        Id rather it have been the egomaniac narcissistic that is Victor Newman played by an actor who is the expert of art imitating life Eric Braden that blowhard is annoying his character and his real life persona one in the same which is even more sad.

  • Bexx

    Seems he’s just mincing words to further allow room for his rabid fans to trash a young girl. Sorry, but he’s a joke at this point, and his fans can give up the dream of him ever returning to Y&R.

    • Cassie

      I personally wouldn’t want him to return to that train wreck of a show.

  • Andrew Hass

    I don’t know what Michael meant by his comments.He might be under strict orders not to say anything right now because no matter what he says his words could be twisted.Plus even he’s been let go there might be some legal manuevering going on behind the scenes.

  • Philip

    Glad to see several of his co-stars speak out in support of Hunter King. It is nice to see some of them rally around her.

    As to him I think his diehard fans need to back off or they are going to make it where no one even wants to work with him ever. They are not going to want to be a part of this circus. They kept pushing this until it all came out and was made public. It would have probably died down and faded but now his firing from Veronica Mars is out there plus other rumors surfacing too. It is a mess.

  • Kelly

    He is defending her as well, He is basically saying don’t beileve every thing you hear including what we are hearing about her making these so called allegations. What a monster this man must be! Team Adam!
