Neil Patrick Harris says James Woods should be ‘ashamed’ of homophobic tweet
Woods mocked a 10-year-old boy for being ‘gender creative.’
James Woods is at it again (on Twitter).
Early Monday morning, the actor, from his verified account, posted a photo of a family celebrating their “gender creative son” at a Pride event. Then, assuming it was his place to do so, he called out their parenting skills and suggested the child would later kill them.
This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you've done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage pic.twitter.com/1k3ITApFsF— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) July 10, 2017
Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t having it and addressed the hateful tweet. The Human Rights Campaign seconded his statement.
Utterly ignorant and classless, Mr. Woods. I'm friends with this family. You know not of what you speak, and should be ashamed of yourself. https://t.co/ZrbtZH49sp— Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) July 11, 2017
Thank you @ActuallyNPH for taking a stand against this vulgar & hateful statement. All children should be accepted & loved for who they are.— HumanRightsCampaign (@HRC) July 12, 2017
The mother in the photo, Lori Duron, wrote about her son attending his first Pride event in June: “My sweet, fabulous, rainbow boy has never received so many compliments. He’s used to getting stares and whispers when we’re out in public. He’s not used to getting the smiles, hugs and encouragement he received at Pride.”
