Is Michael Muhney joining 'GH' and did Kristoff St. John ignite further debate?

Kristoff St. John has portrayed the character Neil Winters on “The Young and the Restless” for 23 years took to Facebook in an attempt to calm down “Y&R” fans upset by the termination of Michael Muhney amid rumors of sexual harassment.

Amid rumors published by The International Business Times on Feb. 5 that Muhney may be headed to “General Hospital” to assume the role of Jason Morgan, a Facebook post by Kristoff St. John in the aftermath of Muhney’s termination has reignited fans indignation.

It does not appear that St. John was trying to cause controversy, but anything said lately by cast members of “The Young and the Restless” on social media seems to polarize fans. In the Facebook post St. John writes about Eric Braeden and the 34 years he has “served at his post.” He also writes about other members of the cast who have “committed and dedicated MOST of their lives to bringing “complex, colorful story to life every day.” St. John refers to this as a “HUGE chunk of our lives.”

St. John goes on to talk about actors’ egos and that “occasionally things get out of hand, when an actor decides to disrespect the very stage that the veterans that helped to create the magic from scratch.” Many fans have taken offense to that remark as well as what appears to be St. John’s comparison of the mudslinging and rumors surrounding “The Young and the Restless” to the riots in Los Angeles many years ago.

The post by St. John is quite long but fans can read the post in its entirety on Kristoff St. John's Facebook wall. To end the post Kristoff states that co-creators William Bell and his wife Lee Phillips Bell would only wish for grace and dignity on the set of "The Young and the Restless."
