As we reported, the How I Met Your Mother actor tweeted asking who the “woman in the top hat” was during Sunday night’s telecast, prompting the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star to clap back with a reminder that they had met plenty of times.

Apparently, NPH didn’t want to leave their exchange hanging on a sour note — so he rightfully apologized for his snarky comment on Wednesday, tweeting:

Rachel seemed satisfied with the apology, as she replied:


We’re sure she really appreciated the gesture, because the actress sounded kind of salty about the tweet when it came up in an interview with GQ published earlier Wednesday.

When asked if the pair’s social media tango was a “bit,” she revealed:

“No, no, no. It wasn’t a joke. Basically… I saw that tweet. And I was kind of devastated. I was actually going to tweet, ‘This makes me sad.’ But then I was like, ‘Ehhhhhhhhhh… I don’t want to give him that, necessarily.’ Look. I’ve met him a couple times. Very recently, backstage in the dressing room of a Broadway show. And we hung out for a solid 15 minutes with the star of this Broadway show. It was just bizarre to me that it wouldn’t ring a bell. And also, that he wouldn’t Google it.”

Their tense exchange may have not been a bit, but we can totally see them reconciling with a musical number together at next year’s Tonys.

Now, that would be some broadway style resolution!
