Adam Huss has brought Nikolas Cassadine back to Port Charles on a full-time basis, but he's been forced to address some keyboard bullies who have taken to posting nasty comments on his social media posts.

No one likes a keyboard bully, including actors. Constructive criticism goes with the territory, but cruelty is never acceptable. Unfortunately, General Hospital's Adam Huss had been dealing with the latter since brining Nikolas Cassadine back to Port Charles on January 3, 2024.

Huss originally stepped into the role on a temporary basis during Marcus Coloma's run as the infamous Cassadine prince. He also ushered the character off canvas when Coloma and GH parted ways and Coloma was unable to wrap up filming. Throughout 2023, Huss would reappear as Nikolas to let viewers know that Nikolas was out of his coma and off to Europe to lay low. All that changed when Huss returned in January full-time and his name began to appear in the show's credits.

After Coloma exited the role, fans were hopeful that fan favorite Tyler Christopher would reprise his role as Laura's (Genie Francis) eldest son, which Christopher had played on and off from 1996 until 2016, but that was not to be. Sadly, Christopher passed away suddenly in October 2023 from a cardiac event. He was 50.

With Nikolas' story still very much a part of the canvas since Coloma's exit, it was only a matter of time before Nikolas returned. Therefore, it was not a surprise when Huss popped up on our screens and promptly hatched a plot with ex-wife Ava Jerome (Maura West) to take down Esme Prince (Avery Kristen Pohl) and secure custody of his son Ace. Viewers were happy to see Huss back, and they were quick to congratulate him.

Grateful for the outpouring of support, Huss wrote, "Massive gratitude for all the welcome back love I'm receiving from you wonderful #GeneralHospital fans! As a TV fan myself, I know how impt it is to honor the legacy of a character and will continue to do so as #Nikolas from the great groundwork out there I get to study from."

It should and would have ended there, except a group of trolls who were seemingly unhappy with the decision to cast Huss as the beloved dark prince decided to target him with nasty comments. It was bad enough that Huss felt compelled to take to his Instagram stories and address what was going on. He posted, "Here's the deal- everyone is entitled to their opinions. And I am grateful for the kinds ones. But if your sole purpose in life is to be a nasty troll, don't do it under my comments in my personal post. Go spew your nastiness to other nastys. I don't look for you on wherever it is you choose to do so -- because I don't want to live in the negative darkness you live in. So do me a favor and don't come looking for me here, Thanks!"

Huss followed that post up with a video message on his Instagram story, stating, "I'm always hesitant to do a post like this because, who am I, I'm just another person. But I just had to talk quickly about my last post about the trolls, because a lot of you have been sending so many sweet, kind messages, and that was not the reason for me posting it." Huss went on to express his appreciation for the support that he's received, and he acknowledged that there had been a lot of positivity and love. "All that post was about was the haters that are out there that come onto my page, there's no reason for it," he said. "I've been bullied my whole entire life, especially in this business. You experience it. I'm now confident and strong enough to just say, 'Stop. Don't come on my page and do that,'" the actor shared.

Adam's concluded his message on a positive note. "I focus on all this beautiful love coming at me. So, thank you so much for that love. I'm just saying be kind. The world's really rough enough. We're all going through hard times. Just be kind."
