Neil Patrick Harris Disses Tony Awards' Rachel Bloom, Who Fires Back

The 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' star jogged his memory of who she is in an awkward Twitter moment.

Live-tweeting can be hazardous.

Actor Neil Patrick Harris appeared to mock backstage host Rachel Bloom during the Tony Awards on Sunday ― and he probably regretted it.

Bloom, from TV's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," had a similar role on the Tonys broadcast last year, but nothing apparently rang a bell with Harris, a four-time Tonys host.

Bloom jogged his memory.

Harris, who starred for nine seasons as Barney on "HIMYM," made an awkward recovery.
