“The Young and the Restless’” Robert Adamson (Noah Newman) is the latest actor from the series to speak out in light of the vitriol spouted on social media against co-star Hunter King (Summer Newman) following allegations that Michael Muhney (soon-to-be ex-Adam Newman) groped her breasts, which reportedly is what ultimately resulted in his firing last month.

Tweeting a quote by German psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, which states, “The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity,” Adamson said to his followers, “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.”
