Neil Patrick Harris Didn't Know Who Rachel Bloom Was—And Her Response Was Legendary

Neil Patrick Harris Didn't Know Who Rachel Bloom Was—And Her Response Was Legendary

The 72nd Annual Tony Awards telecast was filled with controversial political statements but what no one expected was there to be controversy between four-time past Tony Awards host, Neil Patrick Harris and CW Television Network series creator, Rachel Bloom.

Bloom, who writes, produces and stars in the critically acclaimed, award-winning musical-comedy-drama series, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, was hosting the backstage segment of the broadcast for CBS (as she did last year) when NPH decided to get a little shady about the actress, not only pulling a "Who that? Never heard of her," but also taking aim at her idiolectical speech patterns:

Instead of laughs though, it appears Harris simply inserted his foot into his own mouth—in a BIG way. 

Not only should NPH know who Bloom is, as a fan of musical theater, but he's apparently met her (several times) AND worked with her husband before—a few details Bloom was only too-kind to remind him about: 

Though NPH attempted to stealthily recover from being schooled in front of the Internet...

...Twitter was having none of it:

Others seemed to be so stunned by the former How I Met Your Mother star's confessional tweet, which seemingly showed him to either be horribly petty or woefully out-of-the-musical-theater-loop that they chose to believe it was all an elaborate joke:

As of this morning, Bloom, whose show takes on the topic of mental illness in the hopes of educating, entertaining, and destigmatizing the issue and who often hosts the hashtag #TheaterKidRevengeCorner on her social media as a way for theater kids to clap back at bullies, has not yet replied to NPH's non-apology tweet. Harris has also not issued a J/K tweet. 

Here's a sample of her #TheaterKidRevengeCorner 2018 Tony Awards edition:
