Neil Patrick Harris has left Twitter cringing after he failed to recognise Rachel Bloom - despite having met the comedian several times.
Harris was live tweeting the Tony awards from his couch when he commented on Bloom who was acting as a roving reporter backstage.
The A Series Of Unfortunate Events star tweeted that he was “confused” by “the woman in the top hat”.
“Gideon remarked that she says ‘like’ and ‘oh my god’ a lot,” Harris added, referring to his seven-year-old son.
Bloom quickly replied, awkwardly pointing out that she met Harris “numerous times” and was a “big fan”.
To make matters worse, Bloom’s husband Dan Gregor had worked on How I Met Your Mother for five years.
Of course Harris' embarrassing mistake didn't go unnoticed by the internet with Twitter collectively cringing at his mistake.
Aaaaand then Neil actually went and replied. Except his reply was still awkward and as one Twitter user pointed out, sure didn't sound like an apology...
This is all just awkward af...
