In surprising news, Michael Muhney, a.k.a. Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, has been fired.
Taking to twitter to announce the shocking news, Muhney said,
“I’m so sorry,” he wrote. “It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R. My last day on set is this Thursday. My last air date will be Jan 30th. I’m going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am most concerned for their well-being…I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have. More details will follow… #xoxoxo”
We met Muhney back in 2012 at a Soap Opera event. The actor made it clear that he was ‘above’ being a soap opera actor and had only taken the role as a stepping stone until he found a role he considered more suitable for his great acting talent.
Are you surprised Muhney was fired? What do you think the cause of him being fired was? Based on his tweet, it doesn’t seem like an amicable split.
