Did Neil Patrick Harris say the N word in his opening number at the Tonys? No, he didn’t. Harris blasted the Daily Mail Monday for a story that says exactly that. “And as he sang alongside Tyson he dropped the N word singing: ‘Is I his n***a’ as Iron Mike hot shoe shuffled beside him across the stage at Radio City Hall [sic],” the story details. Harris took to Twitter with an angry message: “Really, Daily Mail?!? The N-word? That’s your story?!? I would NEVER be so disrespectful and frankly, neither should you.” So what did he say? Listen to the clip.
