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

Published

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.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
