Neil Patrick Harris says James Woods should be ‘ashamed’ of homophobic tweet


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.

Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t having it and addressed the hateful tweet. The Human Rights Campaign seconded his statement.

Woods posted a homophobic tweet about Anderson Cooper in May and has turned Twitter into a litigation playground: He’s been sued for tweets and has sued over tweets.

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.”
