The Young and the Restless just placed casting coal in the stockings of many fans this holiday season.

Michael Muhney, who has starred on the CBS soap opera for almost six years as Adam Newman, Tweeted yesterday that he's been fired from the daytime drama.

"It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R," the actor wrote. "My last day on the set is this Thursday.”

Muhney, whose final installment will air January 30, added:

“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.”

CBS is yet to comment on the dismissal.

I AM LOST FOR WORDS. I WISH MICHAEL FURTHER INVESTIGATION WAS DONE. IF THIS IS TRUE, I AM SORRY FOR HER, BUT HE SHOULD WENT TO SEE A PSY-DOCTOR OR BEEN OFFEED LEAVE WITHOUT PAY UNTIL THIS WHOLE ISSUE WAS BROUGHT TO LIGHT. I AM GOING TO MISS HIM, ANSD HE REALLY PLAYED THE PART. I WATCHED THE SHOW JUST TO SEE ADAM AND VICTOR. WELL, IT FEELS LIKE MY HEART IS EMPTY. I SUGGEST THAT EVERYONE INVOLVED UN THIS RECEIVE SOME SOUGHT OF COUNSELING. MAYBE, Y & R COULD OFERER HIS JOB BACK AFTER EVERTHING IS RESOLVED AND HE ISRECEIVING HELP. IN ADDITION, THIS ALLEGED VICTIM SHOULD RECEIVED HELP ALSO. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT EVERYONE ALREADT THREW HIM UNDER THE BUS AND KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT HE IS DID THIS. GOD BLESS EVERYONE GOING THREW THIS ISSUE.

I never cared for this Adam. The character may have had some longevity, but I am glad MM is gone. I did not know of this until reading these comments. Am I correct in reading that Billy Miller is leaving also? Now, him I do love... I always preferred Heather Tom as Victoria, but I like Amelia Heinle as the wife of This Billy. I couldn't see her with Neil Winters.
I went to high school with Angelo Tiffe, the bartender named Angelo, that worked in the club that Nikki owned.
I have watched Y& R since 1964. I love it and I will be sad to see it end. I don't understand, why are the soaps being replaced with talk, and Dr shows? I loved As The World Turns and Guiding Light also. I remember that we didn't have to see sexual scenes, it was the innuendo, they closed the door behind them and we knew. Even as the original characters were being replaced with a new generation, one that I don't understand, it was still a part of my day, every day, for 49 years. Nap time at 12:30 til 4:00pm. I couldn't tape them, or DVR the shows. Even though I now watch on CBS .com, I have to watch at 12:30. It may be yesterdays episode, to me it is comfort, it's tradition. My mother is the same, as I remember she would lay down at 12:30 on the couch after putting me down for a nap. I would sneak out and lay on the floor in the hall and watch from around the corner. She cannot be interrupted when Y & R is on. We know not to speak to her, even though she does tape it, just in case..

It's a darn shame that "THE VEST" aka adam is let go on the Y&R. Such a brilliant and handsome actor. I don't know what happen, but everyone deserves another chance. Michael Muhney will be miss. I just don't see anything else about that show, there are others that have been fired but not like "THE VESTMAN". Your ratings made go down. Please bring him back.

I am almost at a lost for words...or maybe not. It's like this. MM was great on Y&R. (one of the best actors ever, really!) I enjoyed his acting skills and have stated that if they pulled him from the show that they were idiots, because finally the show had some fire in it, however; let's keep it real, if he touched someone without their consent then that's not right. (you gotta pay the piper) and unfortunately I don't think he can balance out the karmic scales with this one.... Now if this is untrue that's totally different, but the dude was fired and I can't see them firing him without the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.... but remember this there is 2 sides two any story....so let's not judge or crucify to quickly....tick tock

I cannot believe these comments. The guy groped someone without consent and you're sad to see him go? Great actor sure. But his actions are inexcusable. (Assuming it's all true of course)

Firing I can't believe it, but there are 2 sides 2 every story. If Adam is like his character on the show I can see him walking away to protect his family, especially if he did not do this.I sure hope Billy is not replaced,or taken off I love him and Victoria,I hated him sleeping with Kelly. 30 yrs. of watching this I am about done. BUT talk shows and doctors is all they can put on any more. game shows are on then taken off as fast as they come on, but old game shows seem to be a hit.

sorry to inform you that Billy Miller is exiting the show. I believe his last episode will be aired January 30th. David Tom who played Billy before will be returning in February.

Sexual harassment policies are very firm and need to be to protect the victim. Once a charge is made and proven a firing would be the only course of action that could be taken. It's a shame, It really is. But it had to be done if that's the case. MM was lucky it didn't turn out to be a police matter. If this is true.

What about his inappropriate actions on the set? Does talent matter more than right and wrong, morality and law?

firing for no good reason? What if this happened to your sister or to you? Just because he is a great talent doesn't give him the right to treat others any way he chooses. If he has a side to the story, I would like to hear it. However, there is such a thing as treating others with respect.
