I don't see why make an issue when someone don't like something....smh


Soap actors and actress must have this the worst. They play these characters day in and day out. There are fans out there that either can't or won't separate the actor/actress from the character they play. It's like anyone else who leaves their job at the end of the day and wants to go home and leave the work at the office.

Someone on Instagram called her Red and MS told her exactly what the OP wrote. I felt sorry for the fan. She wasn't being offensive and MS overreacted; was rude, in my opinion. When your fans stop talking to you period....then you need to worry.


She was rude. Period.

Don't be rude to fans! How hard is that? Her claim to fame was playing a devious Red head on a soap. Embrace it.


Can you blame the woman for being tired of people interchanging her with the character she plays? I don't see how that is being rude.


It comes with the territory. She's paid very handsomely to do something that she clearly loves to do and would not be possible without fans and viewership. I don't think it's too much to ask for her to be gracious to fans.

It she was called a nasty name, that's different. But to get snarky with a fan is just bad practice unless they were disrespectful. She could have easily ignored it. And given that her only real claim to fame is her role on Y&R, she should expect that most tweets directed towards her very public twitter profile will be regarding the show and not the actress. So if she's tired of dealing with "crazy" fans that don't distinguish her from her character, then she probably shouldn't be on twitter.

I wouldn't exactly say her response was snarky. Simply telling someone not to call her a nickname that she doesn't like is not that big of a deal. Heaven forbid actors ask for their fans to respect their wishes.
