What is it ok for Victoria to blackmail Victor to get CEO but not ok for Adam?

Victoria told Victor that if he does not make her CEO she would create her own company and would bring Newman down. And never talk to Victor ever. Now Adam is blackmailing to become CEO.

Victoria didn’t use I can send you to prison as part of her blackmail

So what? If Victor did the crime he should pay the time (and this time not where he has the run of the jail and the officials bow down to him). I think Adam should start his own company and take Newman down that way. Either way Victor belongs in jail.

Victor just caved on that one because he didnt want Victoria to embarrass herself. :rofl:

She ran the company while Victor was sick and ran/runs it well, Victor has said that many times. When Victor felt better he removed her via press release not talking to her at all which was disrespectful.

She didn’t blackmail him imo. She stood up for herself. And she actually loves the company and the family legacy that has been consistent with her.

Adam is a crybaby who doesn’t even really want NE. He usually wants it to prove a point or stick it to Victor

Victoria earned that position and is the rightful heir.

We will see but my opinion Victor didn’t kill the man in Kansas either Adam did or Hope did and Victor paid the coroner so the police wouldn’t investigate Adam thinks he has the upper hand…I think in a few days we will see the rug pulled out from under Adam

Adam is using what is available to him. He did not receive half a billion from Newman.

Adam was a kid. He did not kill AJ. Hope might have, we will see.

Well not sure of the age cliff died around 1996. But I don’t recall the year Alyssa father died. Did it ever say

Adam getting the money has nothing to do with his blackmail of Victor over a death he can’t prove.

Without half a billion he can’t use the same blackmail that Victoria did. Everyone uses what they have available to them.

Victoria said she would start her own company
Adam already has a company he recently bought.

He could try to outdo newman enterprises

Funny we agree on something about Adam. I really don’t like this story line. Adam should be running his own company

He has no capital to outdo NE. That’s the problem I was talking about. Victoria has half a billion, he does not.

He wants to show Victor that he can be as ruthless as him. Victor put him in jail for the murder of Constance, creating all the fake evidence. I think Victor loves this kind of Adam. Most likely it was Hope who killed AJ, but Victor does not want to tarnish her memory.

I think this is all another one of Victor’s games.
