Neil Patrick Harris decided to live tweet the Tony Awards, and it didn’t go particularly well. The theater star and former Tonys host seemingly shaded Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator and star, Rachel Bloom, on Sunday night in one tweet.
“Who is the woman in the top hat backstage at @TheTonyAwards? Gideon remarked that she says ‘like’ and ‘oh my god’ a lot. I’m confused…” he wrote.
Bloom quickly clapped back, replying, “I’m a big fan of yours. 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.”

Coincidentally, earlier in the evening, Bloom had a much friendlier Twitter exchange with another HIMYM co-star, Jason Segel. Segel tweeted the CW star to let her know that his sister had actually designer her Stephen Sondheim T-shirt, which she wore to the annual show.
“My sister Alison made this shirt. Real proud of her. It looks fantastic! I hope you are having a blast at the awards,” Segel wrote, to which Bloom replied, “Oh no way! She’s the best.”
