'The Young and the Restless' Cast Speak Out About Michael Muhney Getting Fired from Y&R Including TV Dad Eric Braeden

Some of the members of "The Young and the Restless" (Y&R) cast have spoken out about their ex-costar Michael Muhney who got fired from Y&R including his TV dad Eric Braeden. According to earlier reports, Muhney was reportedly fired for allegedly harassing 20-year-old Y&R costar Hunter King. Braeden was also thrown into the mix and was accused of having Muhney fired. However, Braeden is coming forward and saying that Muhney actually tried to have him fired before he got fired himself.
According to Radar Online, Braeden, who has been playing the role of Victor Newman in "The Young and the Restless" since 1980, said that he didn't have Muhney fired from the soap opera. Instead, he claims that Muhney and him had a "shouting match" because the latter campaigned to get him off the show.
"I was prompted to get into 'fisticuffs' with him because he wanted me off the show, if you want to know the truth," said Braeden in the Radar Online report.
He also clarified that he has no part in Muhney or King's situation.
"The notion that Hunter King came to me and was coaxed by me to go to the top (and get Muhney fired) is utter nonsense."
"We did have our differences, but for anyone to say that I had him fired is a lie," added Braeden in the report by Radar Online.
Muhney claims that he was taken off the soap opera because he was too outspoken. And, he admitted to his disagreements with Braeden, insinuating that might have been a motive for his removal from "The Young and the Restless."
Meanwhile, Hunter King, the other Y&R costar who is dragged into this controversy has chosen to keep quiet about the whole thing.
Celebrity litigator Gloria Allred thinks that King's silence is the better move and that Muhney should seek legal advice before making further comments about his situation with Y&R.
Other cast members of "The Young and the Restless" including Joshua Morrow, Jessica Collins, Eileen Davidson, Christian Le Blanc, Greg Rikaart, Elizabeth Hendrickson and Christel Khalil seemed to side with Hunter because they defended her from bashers on Twitter.
Now that some members of "The Young and the Restless" cast have spoken out about Michael Muhney getting fired from Y&R including his TV dad Eric Braeden, a can of worms has been opened and will get more people to talk about this issue. Until King releases an official statement confirming or denying the allegations of sexual harassment against Muhney, then everything will just be speculations and rumours. Stay tuned for further developments about Muhney's career and his costars' reactions as well as the fate of his character Adam Newman in Y&R.
