LOL, apologies. laugh.png

 

I meant, her accusations weren't just limited to her alone, but were likely an ongoing problem with Muhney and perhaps others, which HR needed to look into more thoroughly. 

 

HR investigations can be as slow as molasses, which unfortunately means due to all the red tape, the victim and her predictor continue to work in close circles until its determined that appropriate action needs to be taken. Given that this is a TV show,  If either party quits, they'd also be facing litigation for breaking their contracts. It's a terrible situation, but It's just standard procedure as to why he probably wasn't fired much sooner and was only fired a few weeks ago.

This story that named Hunter King was definitely broken first on SON by SharonRocks. The story then spread like wildfire across the soaps boards.

 

In any case, AM does not work for Sony so MM fans' are sure to be disappointed that it cannot fire her since she works for CBS.

You are totally correct, it spread across the soap board and in the soap fan community, but it has only gotten legs in the mainstream press after TMZ got a hold of it. And ain't nobody doin sh!t to Angie... if she did leak it, I bet she did it with the blessing from the CBS brass who is sick of taking a beating for Muhney's firing.

Was there another accuser (as opposed to the named witness)? I wasn't aware of one.

LOL! True

 

This could have been reported 6 months ago, but it often takes a while for HR to investigate the matter and come to a conclusion. King may have filed her complaint with HR/show bosses 6 months ago, but they obviously had to investigate the matter, which meant Muhney was allowed to stay on until they could come to the conclusion that King's accusations had some girth to it and the show needed to fire Muhney in order to protect their asses from a serious lawsuit.

 

I've seen this happen all the time. Not everyone gets fired ASAP, especially when there's so many parties involved.  

 

I think a lot of people have never worked in large corporations so the HR process is unfamiliar. These companies are not going to fire someone on the spot when an allegation made. They have to be investigated so the company is not subjected to a lawsuit from either party. What if it is not true? Or it cannot be proven to be true? Usually, all steps are taken to monitor the individuals involved during the investigation process. In the case of Y&R, keeping HK and MM apart is very easy since they did not share scenes. The shooting schedule could have been arranged so they were never on set at the same time.

I have worked at one of the big three engineering companies. A work buddy of mine was being sexually harassed and stalked by a coworker. HR monitored and investigated for MONTHS. Before the investigation was final, the guy was arrested for trying to abduct two underage boys from their yard. O_O

What a scandal that was!!!!

The TMZ report said that MM had been a problem for a long and that he had bullied HK and others. There were other victims of his bullying, whether it was sexual harassment or not.

She is married to somebody that works for TMZ, who reported on MM groping HK breasts.  & she works for CBS.

Can you imagine MM's shock with his agent/rep called to let him know that Sony was kicking him to curb and so quickly? I bet EB reacted in glee to know that the pretender to his throne was gone. LOL!

We should all be thankful this means Muhney's ass is probably blacklisted for good. 

 

Though, it wouldn't surprise me if Cartini hires this jerk on GH as a "casting coup" to please Nelson and DC. I certainly hope not.

There is absolutely no way that Disney/ABC allows MM to be hired at GH. Can you imagine the lawsuit if he repeated that behavior at GH?

I doubt she leaked it  and CBS definitely wouldn't give her the blessing to do so because of the lawsuit potential.
