As news spread yesterday of How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris twitter slap at The Young and the Restless, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), for calling him a “D-bag” (due to the soap icon backing out of a planned appearance on the CBS sitcom), now Braeden has spoken to another Hollywood outlet on the situation. This time it’s the The Hollywood Reporter, where Braeden has some very choice words for Harris.
Braeden told THR, “It was utterly inappropriate. He’s a little boy. I need a worthy adversary. I don’t even know who this fellow is. I don’t have a Twitter thing. But you have to be careful in this world.”
For those who missed this twitter mess, it all stemmed from when Harris had objected to Braeden dropping out of an episode of How I Met Your Mother at the last minute because the part was not “substantial” enough — and then wrote the offensive Tweet.
Harris later apologized by Tweeting, “Now I feel bad for the D-bag comment. Don’t know the guy personally. I’m just fiercely protective of our show.”
So what do you think of Harris’s behavior and Braeden’s responses? Let us know!
