Since Michael Muhney was fired from the role of Adam Newman on “The Young and the Restless” it has not only caused discord amongst fans, but between fans and the cast of the long running CBS soap opera.

An exclusive interview on Feb. 26 with a source knowledgeable of the daily happenings on the set of “The Young and The Restless", reveals that the veteran actors welcomed him nearly 5 years ago. Even Jerry Douglas, who took to Twitter and spoke out against Muhney when he was fired, was supportive of the actor when he joined the cast.

When Muhney left the cast of “Veronica Mars” rumors circulated that his onset tantrums were the reason he was fired. Reportedly the same is true about Muhney’s time on “The Young and the Restless.” But, Michael seemed friendly enough when he joined the cast and veteran actors were supportive of him. Reportedly it did not take long for Muhney’s attitude to change, and he would allegedly display inappropriate behavior or make inappropriate and vulgar comments to and about female members of “The Young and the Restless” cast. Only a few insiders were aware of the situation but did not make any reports.

When the inappropriate behavior spread to a younger female member of the cast, she was the first one to actually report the incidences. The complaints were a human resources issue and handled internally with CBS and filed away. Sources say that Muhney’s termination had very little to do with the incident involving Hunter King.

Many believe that there are a select group of veteran actors who have an axe to grind against Michael Muhney. Some believe that these actors were also jealous of Muhney’s talent and the fact that his character Adam Newman was given so much airtime. According to a source on the set of “The Young and the Restless” this could not be further from the truth. It seems that Muhney himself was the cause of his undoing because of his hubris, which he himself acknowledged in his exit interview with Huffpost Canada.
