Victoria Rowell Claims CBS Racist, Starts Petition Against Y&R Daytime Soap

Posted By Urban News Hour | April 15, 2013

Former CBS Young & the Restless actress Victoria Rowell is blasting the network which is responsible for her successful career.

‘CBS Young & the Restless turns 40. No black executive producers hired in 40 years. WHY support what doesn’t support you? No to Proctor & Gamble,’ she tweeted.

Victoria didn’t stop with just a few tweets. The actress, who starred on the show for 14 years, goes on to form a petition against the network and the shows executives.

While I agree that Victoria has a point, it seems that all of this is stemming from anger with her on/off again history with the show. Victoria once called out the lack of diversity behind-the-scenes of the show back in 2007 which prompted network executives to have the head writer kill off her character. Victoria felt as though the lack of diversity hindered her chances of receiving a Daytime Emmy.
