The drama continues!

After Michael Muhney was let go from The Young & The Restless his legion of fans went cray cray!

Even saying they were going to stop watching the show after Michael departs from the soap on January 30th!

But amidst all the dramz, TYATR‘s former producer AND the person who fired Michael, Maria Arena Bell, spoke out to Highlight Hollywood about the situation.

She said:

Frankly he should have been let go months before because of his behind the scenes actions. It’s still a loss for the fans. Instead of acting quickly they tried to turn the fans against the character of Adam. Bad move. And they should not recast right away now. It’s too damaged.”

It is a loss for the fans, but this kind of behavior cannot be condoned!

She also added:

“I think they should have taken immediate action. They didn’t. Whatever happened, they need to protect the safety of the cast.”

Maria is right, the higher ups should’ve done something right away after being alerted of his harassing ways the first time!

How many times must someone be bullied and harassed before actions are taken?

Obviously one too many.
