Neil Patrick Harris insults Eric Braeden

With the advent of Twitter, stars have more than ever taken to the net to speak their minds and it’s not just official statements they make.

A great number of singers and actors speak directly to their fans, but Twitter is also a place for rants.

“Eric Braeden is a D-Bag.”

This is exactly what Neil Patrick Harris had to say about the actor from “The Young and the Restless.” The star of “How I Met Your Mother” alleged Braeden had dropped the whole team at the last moment.

“The actor, (Robin’s dad) agreed to a cameo, then last night bailed, saying the part wasn’t ‘substantial’ enough,” explained Harris on his personal Twitter account.

Eric Braeden, best known for his role as Victor Newman in “The Young and the Restless”, had already played Robin’s father in an episode of the series, released in November 2008. At the time, he told TV Guide that he didn’t really want to participate in the series, but had been persuaded by his family and his colleagues, although he did acknowledge having had a great time on the set.

After these recent events, it seems certain that the actor will no longer want to take part in the series.

A few hours later, Eric Braeden has responded to the insult, telling Entertainment Weekly: “His choice of words bothered me.”

“It seems to me like a young whippersnapper, having seen himself on a few covers, who’s received a few awards, is now suddenly suffering from the first signs of hubris,” he said.

“I’ve been in the business for 50 years. I’ve seen people come and go and I’m still here.”

Braeden also explained the reason for his refusal to participate in the series this time, saying he is “exhausted” from a recent hip surgery and, “I was not about appear on a show for two lines.”

As for Neil Patrick Harris, he seemed to be regretting his tweets. Three hours after his insulting comment, he came back on the subject and said: “Now I feel bad for the D-bag comment. Don’t know the guy personally. I’m just fiercely protective of our show.”
