Fans of Fired Y&R Star Michael Muhney Fly Plane Over Television City! (PHOTOS)





Television City gets more air traffic these days than LAX!  Almost every time an actor gets fired, or is in contract negotiations at The Young and the Restless, fans seem to take to the friendly skies!

The latest fanbase to charter a plane for an ousted actor are the Michael Muhney (ex-Adam) lovers. Check out another pic of the "Team Muhney" plane flying over Televison City after the jump!

    HA! I understand using a plane to bring attention to the issue of contract negotiations but not if someone is in the middle of a scandal.

    What decent project would want to hire an actor with all this baggage, and a constant circus taking place around him? Unless MM’s wants to do porn or some other project that thrives on sex scandals like these how does a plane help him?

    I understand that people don’t know what happened. But when the story is out there, until it is all washed out, are these people really saying that they want MM to work on Y&R again?

    “Team Muhney supports Michael Muhney”

    Isn’t that message a little redundant? If you’re “Team Muhney”, obviously you support Michael Muhney. Duh.

    Anyway, I agree. Waste of money. SONY is never hiring him back.

    Think about how many professional athletes get into scandals and still have fans and people still make the money. Michael Jackson was an alleged pedophile/child molester and now he’s got a Cirque show in his name. Bill Clinton is still the darling of the Democrats though he cheated on his wife. In the function of their work, that’s what most Americans seem to care about, not what’s happening behind the scenes.

    Pathetic? I think not.

    No one would expect him to even want to return now, but it’s great to see the support from those who don’t suck up tabloid trash as gospel. BTW, how many titties did TMZ have photos of today on their site? Classy.

    As far as Sony never hiring him again? Seriously folks, this is Hollywood. This too will pass and then people move on. Muhney’s a very talented man. He’ll get work. Heck, I was listening to Jamie on the podcast and he thinks MM could go back to soaps in a year or two, but I doubt if he’ll ever want to get back into the kiddie pool again.

    @MotownKate4soaps….you are correct in your post. Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Rob Lowe, Ben Roethisberger, Kobe Bryant, Mike Tyson to name a few have all had scandals and yet still had or have careers and millions of fans.

    I don’t understand why all the negative comments. Do you all believe the rumors? Which are just that rumors? They are saying the support Michael, and he should not have been fired. Everyone here so quick to judge.

    [quote=thecourt99]I think that some celebrities are famous enough that they can overcome a scandal. Not everyone is that level of celebrity.[/quote]

    The general public’s attention span in this country lasts about 30 seconds. The soap fandom is a small audience of maybe 10 million people, if that, in a population of over 300+ million. Michael Muhney’s future will be fine in time. There will be some other scandal to come along to get everyone’s panties in a wad, this will be a faded memory in the rear view mirror. TMZ posts scandals hourly.

    Puh-LEASE.. I will never ever understand the pedestals some fans put celebrities on..

    Maybe it’s because I’m from a small town.. but I take any type of allegations regarding sexual abuse, serious… True or False, I stand by Y&R’s decision. If he’s as innocent as his fans say he is, then he’ll find work again.. Soap stars come and go ALL the time.. this is NO different to me.

    I don’t have kids but I love my nieces to pieces and I hope that if they EVER cried for help, that help would be given without questioning their own innocence.

    Lastly, shame on those that would rather call Hunter a whore and praise MM rather than letting TPTB do their job. .. even if TPTB is Satan, herself… Lol

    LOL at a poster with handle **LauraWrightCRAZY** criticizing other people for idolizing soap actors! Oh the irony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    It’s their coin, they can spend it any way they want. All you bitches talking about charities and shit have probably never donated a single dollar to any of them. Girl bye!

    I think the money’s worth it just because the publicity around it is giving indigestion to backstabbing bitch Angelica McDaniel; soap destroyer and Agent Orange pimp Jill Farren Phelps, jealous fading queens Lady LeBlanc, Grambo Braeden and Kiss Ass Davidson; and last but not least, the homewrecker hussy whose name shall not be named. Close your legs to married men!

    Much to the chagrin of a few GH Crazies that came to Y&R following Constipated Burton, Michael Muhney still has a ton of friends and people who support him. And no one is talking about Agent Orange, no one! It just hurts you, doesn’t it haters???

    Team Muhney all the way. Bring it bitches, let’s roll.

    @YRDiva

    If you haven’t noticed pretty much the entire cast is supporting HHK- only SC has come out for MM. I think that tells you something but keep living in the delusional land of conspiracy theories.

    I have given lots of money and time to charities. And never once to any soap actor or any celebrity. (but I am not crazy)

    Finally- I imagine if Laura Wright was fired for fondling Brian Craig against his will and it came out. I highly doubt LauraWrightCrazy would waste money to fly a plane over THE WRONG STUDIO to support her.

    There is a huge difference between being a fan and having that as a message board name and wasting money on a plane, attacking an alleged victim of sexual assault and creating wild and asinine conspiracy theories to excuse bad behavior.

    @LauraWright Crazy if I was wrong please correct me.

    He didn’t grope anyone. Or have you seen a police report, arrest and conviction to prove it otherwise? Thirsty starlets make up shit every hour of every day. Maybe Hunter King was burnt (like you) that a good man didn’t give her the attention she so clearly needs. It’s all ALLEGATIONS, so why not make shit up and proclaim it as Bible truth?

    And sorry to tell you but your idol Steve Burton still can’t act. They could fire everyone at Y&R and he’d still be the weakest link, lol.

    I don’t like Steve Burton sorry, and he has nothing to do with this. Steve Burton hasn’t been mentioned in any report, there isn’t some conspiracy by Steve Burton to get rid of MM. Wow, not seeing what he has to do with this.

    And he allegedly groped her and I am pretty sure I said alleged in my post. Also your obsession with police reports shows how truly ignorant, delusional or just plain dumb you are!! Most sexual assaults and sexual harassment cases go unreported. Because there is fear, and so often the victim is blamed.

    Oh and for you to say she did this because she was burnt about a good man, is SICK! I hope you know that you are without a doubt the most vile pathetic human being, and anything karma brings you is deserved.

    Get a life, get a family, get a job because a soap should not get you so heated that you can’t do anything but bash a child and seriously she is a child for being the alleged victim of sexual ASSAULT.

    I live in New York sweetie so even in LA you’re a hick to me. Now apparently you flew your sad little banner over the studio they shoot not where the executives are. If you wanted the executives to see it you should have flown over the that studio. If you just wanted to continue to harass an innocent victim then good job.

    @really I would suggest you read Sara Bibel’s latest blog regarding this mess: http://sarabibel.blogspot.com/2014/01/five-signs-that-you-are-psycho-soap-fan.html

    I have read many of these posts and sadly I think some posters would fit into this category.

    No one knows what really happened on either side, however I don’t think that a huge corporation like CBS/Sony would allow him to be let go without all of their ducks in a row and a solid paper trail, yes it is the entertainment business but it is still a business subject to all of the same rules that most corporations are held to as far as harassment. Plus dealing with the Union SAG-AFTRA as well they wouldn’t do it without cause.

    The only people who have spoken who are anywhere near the situation are his costars (at least closer than those posting) so yes their support tends to carry more weight.

    As for him working two days after the firing well as long as those were days that HHK was not on set and that was the fastest they could wrap his exit then I don’t see the big deal. Or maybe those were his last scheduled days before a break in the story anyway.

    If this is true then I am behind a young woman who spoke up instead of “taking it in stride” regardless of the casting couch and that bs she should not have to put up with it, and I am glad she didn’t. There are plenty of actresses who have not succumbed to that regardless of experience or level of talent.

    As for MM I feel bad for his family, but if the VM stuff is true the Y&R was his second chance. If for some reason it turns out to be false then so be it and I hope he sues.

    I don’t know LA but from the TMZ report where this originated they stated that the executives were in another building. So if they flagged the studio where they film and if that was their goal then they were spot on.

    If they wanted to get the head honchos attention and they are in a separate location then maybe TMZ has a point.

    For me I just don’t see how it changes anything. MM is still gone the actors busy rehearsing and filming. And frankly in a month most will forget this ever happened and it won’t be reopened until people see the recast Adam.

    Supporting Michael Muhney doesn’t equate to harassing Ms King. According to Nelson Branco’s report tonight, there was no groping. So it’s who you want to believe.

    What has made me happy is to see the petty haters go batshit over this show of support. Your mindset has failed to win a conviction. It’s a hung jury and you’re pissed. I love it.

    BTW, living in upstate New York is still a hick to me. Hugs from Hollyweird. Come see us.

    @Jane9 I saw that and I think it fits some of these fans to a T!

    I agree with your post no one knows what happened, but the people on set seem to be supporting HHK which says a lot. And you are right that Sony/CBS would not have fired him for this without looking into it. They did their homework. No reason to risk a lawsuit.

    More important I think regardless if this is true or not HHK does not deserve to be shamed or attacked. And for people thinking that just because you aren’t tweeting her that it doesn’t matter that is just not true. Every time you blame the victim or alleged victim you put out the perception that women ask for it, that they shouldn’t come forward because they will be blamed.

    Even if HHK doesn’t see these things, some girl or boy who is going through this could and become ashamed, feel worse, blame themselves and stay quiet. Letting their attackers off the hook. You put these things out in the world it does have an impact. And should be remembered. No one would want their loved ones to feel like they are in the wrong for being a victim.

    Think before you speak. This is a bigger issue then a soap, or who is getting an A story or the best contract.

    Sadly, this won’t really change SONY’s mind, this is an ugly, ugly, controversial matter, and most companies stay away from controversy.

    Stanley is a character in rapper Eminem’s music, a guy who goes over the edge just to show how much of a fan he is of his rapper idol. I think he even murders his wife in one of the songs.

    Bravo to Sara Bibel! She nailed it on how many soap fans are just out of touch with reality and in their thinking that anything they say will make a difference. Noted by many smart people, Sony and CBS are corporations that have their houses in order. When Sony fires someone for cause, they have all of their support in check. Period.

    The viciousness of fan attacks is beyond sad and exposes the ignorance that abounds with folks.

    It is amazing that a Woman can threaten to not report a sexual assault to the police if co-worker is fired. It is also amazing the employer would side with an employee against another employee without bringing in the proper authorities . If this is how business is done then men should be outraged and afraid that a female co-worker has the ability to destroy his livelihood in an instance. I would hope If a woman goes to her employer and state she has been sexually assaulted the employer would require the woman to file a report before acting upon information. A written report not only covers the employer, but it also opens the door for a formal investigation. Out of all the write ups about this alleged assault has anyone reported that HK submitted a written complaint? Has any read whether an investigation took place?

    We don’t know exactly what happened except probably what has been conjured up here with assumptions and rumours which were then purloined by TMZ. Hunter King should not be vilified and Michael Muhney needs to be given some sort of benefit of the doubt until the facts are divulged and possibly proven guilty by the appropriate means. It would be nice to know what happened but it just might not be any of our business; especially if no crime was committed.

    Even so, I think that these sorts of stunts by fans are rather silly.

    Apparently a NB article came out saying there was no groping.Now they’re saying the truth is finally out.BUT isn’t NB considered a tabloid? Should he be believed over TMZ???

    Here’s an interesting letter from the comments section in the UK Daily Mail. People are speculating that it is a relative of a vet:

    AJLind, Palm Beach, 5 days ago

    The only thing I will say is that things are NOT the way they appear to be. I can say this because my cousin stars on Young & Restless and is one of the persons who is standing up for Michael Muhney in a politically correct way (because of fear of firing also), but thinks a great deal of him. One by one all of the actors with gravitas have been fired, threatened into quitting, or harassed by certain person[s] who run the show and are in charge of hirings and firings. As far as Hunter “Hayley” King goes, someday she may realize she made the wrong decision if indeed she did make a sexual harassment complaint against Michael Muhney…it just may be that Hunter King is also pawn in all of this in order to create a smokescreen for what is REALLY going on behind the scenes by certain person[s] who run the show. Good luck, Michael Muhney and remember this: You have the acting chops to move to the big screen!

    I’m not going on either side of this “scandal” but I am just shocked that there has been SOOOOOOO little out of BELL PRODUCTIONS, SONY and CBS on what the issue is or a proper statement that calm the message boards and gossip.

    Honestly, it only hurts Hunter and Michael more if the story is different that what is being gossip’d around and tarnishes the show even more with adding just more FUEL to the around burning backstage drama on this show.

    My heart goes out to Hunter. Not on the merits of this story, because there are two sides to it. NEITHER side of the story has been given out properly. But, because this young woman is being attacked all over the place by people who have ABSOLUTELY no clue about the truth AND are so cowardly that they use words and names to attack her WHICH they would never use to her face. Also, for Michael and his family, because if their side is true this does nothing for his reputation OR for his families home life.

    My on’y request on here since there has been no official release from any camp on what really went down is to dial back all of the vitriol and remain as respectful as we would want for our daughter, sister, mother, friend, brother, uncle, father or family member.

    Flying that plane was a big waste of money. Because of the allegations against MM there is no way they will rehire him. The whole thing is so sad because MM was the reason I have been watching the show thru this whole depressing, long Delia death story. He’s a good actor and I will miss him. They should just kill off the character of Adam because I don’t want to see another actor in the role, especially if it will be one of Steve Burton’s buddies (And I watch GH, these actors are great but don’t bring them on Y &R as other characters and have them take over the show like Burton has. It will not work!). I still find Dylan boring, and I watched Burton for years on GH. He was good, till JFP had him take over the entire show. I hope Y &R gets it’s act together and we see better written stories.

    I was pretty heartbroken over her leaving GL too.. In fact I had only just started tuning in off and on to GH on SOAPnet because I caught Tamara Braun’s Carly and LOVED the character. Carly brought me to GH.. So when Laura left GL, I followed.. I think I love her because she IS so much different than Cassie Winslow.. Anyhow..

    I love these pages because we can all fight and find common ground and at the end of the day we’re all still soap fans.
