Did Neil Patrick Harris Use The N-Word During Tony Awards?

By  | 

Did Neil Patrick Harris drop an N-bomb during Sunday night’s Tony Awards? The comedian is being accused of doing just that during an eight-minute opening skit featuring Mike Tyson. That skit, according to the Daily Mail, included these lyrics:

‘In tandem like we planned ’em, forgive me if it’s random but Mike Tyson had a one man show let’s give the man a hand.
‘And make things bigger, like bigger
‘I’m here with Iron Mike Tyson he’s a heavyweight yo
‘We’re going bigger is ‘Is I his n*gga’.

We’ve watched the clip a dozen times and can’t seem to decide one way or the other if “n*gga” is the word used or not. NPH certainly is denying the allegation, taking to Twitter moments ago to refute the claim:

“Really, Daily Mail?!? The N-word? That’s your story?!? I would NEVER be so disrespectful and frankly, neither should you.”

Check it out video of the star’s performance below and let us know your thoughts.

    I heard it like 20 times. It sounds to me and everyone else listening (my friends included) that Neil Patrick Harris dropped the N-word live on the Tony Awards Sunday night June 9, 2013 during the opening number. I’m sure NPH wouldn’t like it if someone made a homophobic remark about him. Don’t use the N-Word to describe African Americans period. Doogie you should know better………apologize! Stop saying you didn’t say it! Watch the Tony’s again and again…..you said it dude! Its offensive, disrespectful and rude. ……………CBS yanked the video to cover their ass and to protect the “How I Met Your Mother” star and their bottom line -future ratings.
