Briana Nicole Henry has been on ABC’s legendary soap General Hospital for exactly one week, and already fans are expressing their opinions of how she’s faring. Henry debuted last Thursday, September 13 taking over the role of Jordan Ashford, vacated by the popular actress Vinessa Antoine who left for a lead role on, “Diggstown.”

Yesterday, a viewer tweeted a strong opinion about Henry to her onscreen fiancé, Donnell Turner who plays Curtis, and Turner responded just as strongly. In fact, the spicy exchange led to a flurry of tweets about the potential success of this new onscreen pairing. What got Donnell so riled up?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course, but Turner rightly replied that Jordan and Curtis have not yet been seen paired together onscreen!

The actor tweeted back, “what ? are you trying to start?! You haven’t even seen us in a scene together yet! Foh!”

The exchange prompted a flood of tweets, with most responses defending Henry and praising Turner’s support of the new actress.

One fan wrote, “Thank you for defending your new coworker. Too many men would have let it slide. I can’t imagine how hard it is taking over from someone everyone loved. This woman needs our support. ?”
