8 Times Neil Patrick Harris Was Problematic Or Rude As Hell, Like WOW

You know actor Neil Patrick Harris — he’s the star of How I Met Your Mother and also, like, a huge deal on Broadway.

“We didn’t speak for a long time. He says that he forgave me. He sent me flowers,” Mayim said.

4. When he said an anti-trans slur on Live With Kelly! in 2011:

GLAAD condemned the incident at the time. 

5. When he called actor Jason Mewes — costar of Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob — a “drugged out mess of a guy” when asked about the film in an interview:

This obviously upset director Kevin Smith, who later called out NPH on Twitter:

The two eventually reconciled. 

7. And lastly, when he made a poorly timed joke about Dana Perry’s outfit at the 2015 Oscars, just moments after she dedicated her award to her son, who died by suicide:

“It takes a lot of balls to wear a dress like that,” NPH said. It didn’t land well with some, but Dana did say she thought it was fine.
