It's getting nasty!
The soap actor, Eric Braeden, who Neil Patrick Harris called a "D-bag" on Twitter for bailing out on a HIMYM cameo, has responded to NPH's outburst and he's not happy!
The Young & Restless star said:
"I really don’t know who that fellow is. He’s a guy who stars in that series. It’s very unfortunate. First of all, I came back from hip surgery. I was off for three weeks. I’ve doubled my work, 30 to 50 pages a day for me, alone. Everyone knows that I’m exhausted. I was not about to appear on a show for two lines, because that’s what it amounted to.
I truly enjoyed working there last time. The cast and crew and producers couldn’t have been nicer.
[As for Harris], his choice of words bothered me. It seems to me like a young whippersnapper, having seen himself on a few covers, who’s received a few awards, is now suddenly suffering from the first signs of hubris. I’ve been in the business for 50 years. I’ve seen people come and go and I’m still here. If he is a worthy adversary, he’d better not cross my path. I will let bygones be bygones."
"Whippersnapper?" Looks like he's pulling out the big guns!
Seems like NPH had a change of heart though, because a few hours after his original Twitter outburst, he later tweeted this:
Now I feel bad for the D-bag comment. Don't know the guy personally. I'm just fiercely protective of our show.
Seems like someone is trying to do a little backtracking.
Who do U think is in the right here?
