The Young and the Restless star Eric Braden channeled his alter ego, Victor Newman, to defend his fellow costars amid racist attacks online.

Hot on the heels of General Hospital declaring racism has no place on the hit soap, which is for everyone, Eric’s making another statement.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, GH actress Tabyana Ali was attacked online, promoting the ABC soap to support and defend her.

Now, that same hate has reached Y&R, literally from the same person who is now turning her hate on Sean Dominic (Nate), Christel Khalil (Lily), and Bryton James (Devon).

After the hater was blocked by Tabyana and General Hospital on X (formerly Twitter), an X of her blaming Bryton, Sean, and Christel for ruining the show and referring to them as “slaves” began making the rounds on social media.

The X got the attention of actress Yvette Nicole Brown, bringing the racist attacks to the attention of Y&R’s powers that be and CBS.

Yvette put the hater on blast, letting CBS and The Young and the Restless know their actors were receiving racist hate and revealing how GH handled the racism.

“Dear @YandR_CBS have you seen this tweet from @ghyrbbfan1974? She was blocked by the @GeneralHospital site for this same level of racism,” wrote Yvette.

Soon after, Eric got wind of the X Yvette shared, which included the racist message against Christel, Bryton, and Sean.

Eric entered the chat in full-on Victor mode to defend his colleagues while letting the racist know he won’t stand for what she’s doing.

“These three actors are dear colleagues of mine; they have more class than you LOW LIFE can imagine! We are going to block your racist a**, you got that, b***h??!!,” Eric wrote.

The actor later responded to a fan who tagged him in Yvette’s X, making him aware of the situation by writing, “You know @EBraeden don’t play that mess!!! He’ll make sure it happens!!!”

Eric Braden’s response gets Victor Newman trending

X was going crazy with soap fans reacting to Eric using one of Victor’s infamous lines to blast the racist attacks. The Young and the Restless viewers know all too well that “You got that?” has become a tagline of sorts for Victor Newman.

The responses were filled with support for Eric channeling Victor to defend his castmates and poke fun at the hater who was being trolled.

“Imagine being a soap fan for 50 years only to get blasted by Victor Newman. Couldn’t have happened to a bigger b***h 👏🙌🙌🙌🤭,” read one X.

Another X user said, “Omg now Victor Newman is dragging Karen’s racist a** too 😭.”

Those are just a couple of the Xs that had Victor Newman trending after Eric Braeden shut down a racist attacking three Y&R stars.

There needs to be more Eric’s in the world and less hatred, that’s for sure!

The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.

Thanks to Eric Braeden for standing up against hate. I remember before when he stood up for Melody Thomas Scott against negative comments.
It must be such a miserable existence to not be able to even watch a TV soap without having such hate for the actors that you have to spread your hate around.

SO TRUE. SO SO SAD HOW SOME PEOPLE CAN JUST HATE WITHOUT KNOWING A THING ABOUT A PERSON, OTHER THAN BEING SO SHALLOW AS TO SEE, JUDGE, WITH HATE FOR THE UNKNOWN. THIS HATER MUST BE SEVERELY MENTALLY UNSTABLE AS, IT SHOWS SHE/HE/IT HAS VERY LITTLE BRAIN MATTER, POOR THING.

Kerry @ghyrbbfan1974 is an absolute racist and saying hateful things against 3 extremely talented and wonderful actors on Y&R is despicable! She’d best beware as that is against the law and someone may press charges! Personally I’d LOVE to see it happen. In reality she hates herself above all else so she has to try to make others feel worse in order for her to feel better! You got that b**ch!

I have watched y&r since day one. I feel like the original actors are like family. Remember. When E is acting as VICTOR ,HE IS VICTOR..I have never seen an actor who is so real..he can fight his own battles,,but respect him and leave him alone

The writers on Y & R have created this mess and made the division at CW so full of hate and distrust! It’s getting harder to watch ! We record it so we can see our soap after a long day at work! It’s not relaxing to watch it anymore with the division in every family on the show! Maybe don’t have every family in the hate war at once along with all the illnesses drama at the same time?!!!
I love Eric and he plays his role so well! I do believe that Family needs to stick together and work issues need to be resolved at work within the company guidelines! Devon’s ego is too big to ever listen and respect another person! He needs to be in his own business and stay out of a large corporation!
My opinion and not forced onto another person!
