LOS ANGELES (CBS13) – “How I Met Your Mother” actor Neil Patrick Harris called out another Hollywood actor over an insensitive joke tweeted over the weekend.

Late Sunday night, actor James Woods tweeted out a photo of a family at the Orange County Pride Parade. In the photo, a boy is flanked by his parents who are holding signs reading “My son wears dresses and makeup …. get over it!” and “I love my gender creative son.”

Woods – who is no stranger to making controversial statements – commented on the photo, writing: “This is sweet. Wait until this poor kid grows up, realizes what you’ve done, and stuffs both of you dismembered into a freezer in the garage.”

Tuesday, Harris slammed Woods for the tweet.

“Utterly ignorant and classless, Mr. Woods. I’m friends with this family. You know not of what you speak, and should be ashamed of yourself,” Harris wrote on Twitter.

The boy’s mother detailed her son’s experience at Orange County Pride in a blog post. The boy’s family couldn’t be prouder of him, they say.

  1. I certainly wouldn’t allow my son to wear dresses and makeup, especially at this young age, he’s going to be ridiculed, bullied and possibly physically harmed. I believe the parents at fault here
