The actor posted an apology to Rachel Bloom after a tweet he wrote about her on-air work during the Tony Awards.
“Sincere apologies to @Racheldoesstuff for my Tony tweet,” Harris wrote. “I failed to research before pressing ‘send,’ and what I thought was a funny moment in our living room must have been far from funny to read, backstage, mid show. As a performer and a parent, I should have know[n] better.”
That’s when Bloom fired back, “I’m a big fan of yours,” she tweeted. “We’ve met numerous times and my husband, Dan Gregor, wrote for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ for 5 years. Notably, he wrote the episode where your character finally meets his father.”
“I was kind of devastated,” she said. “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.”
