Eric Braeden (Victor, Y&R) responded to a fan’s comments about Doug Davidson (Paul) being taken off contract at Y&R. After the official @Y&R_CBS account tweeted a shot of the late Jeanne Cooper (ex-Katherine) with Braeden, noting, “We wanted to start off 2019 with an amazing #ThrowbackThursday. Genoa City will always remember Katherine Chancellor and #YR will always remember Jeanne Cooper,” @JoyMathys responded, “Are we supposed to believe in your respect for the ones who made the show after the way @DougDavidsonYR was treated last year?” Braeden responded with, “ The treatment of DOUGIE DAVIDSON, the OLDEST member of our cast, was and is outrageous!! It’s STUPID!! If you want ratings you don’t get rid of A DEMONSTRABLY popular actor!!.” This is not the first time Braeden has weighed in on Davidson’s status with the show; the actor has been very vocal in his support for his longtime co-star.
