Neil Patrick Harris

Sounds Like He

Dropped N-Word at Tonys

8:55 AM PT --
NPH just tweeted ... strongly DENYING he dropped the N-word.

"I would NEVER be so disrespectful," he wrote.

So what DID Neil say? Still unclear.

Neil Patrick Harris
opened the Tony Awards by bringing Mike Tyson out on stage and dropping the N-WORD right in Tyson's face ... or at least that's how it sounds.

Tyson joined NPH while he was singing a song where he repeated the lyric ... "we're going bigger" -- but about 10 seconds after Tyson came out ... NPH sang something that sounds A LOT like the n-word.

We've played it back dozens of times, and can't come up with another explanation (listen for it at :16). We've called NPH and the Tonys. So far ... no word back.

So, we've gotta ask ...

What are you talking about? He clearly says "bigger" and the second time he says it, it sounds as he is taking a breath where the b would be. Seriously, you are pathetic!

Being black in Hollyweird, you have to try to either position yourself between both sides of railroad tracks or be one side. If you want to work in Hollyweird, many times you have to look the other way. It's a shame but the truth. A brother who doesn't give a F would have wiped his arse on the floor but him being a queen, white, a jew and a toastmaster ends that thought process. So being black, you have to say to yourself that your ears failed and he actually said this N-Word, "Nagger", say to yourself he forgets he's in a high risk lifestyle and wait for karma.

He said: Tonight I Swiffer, (the mop). You know how clean Neil is and the rest of that "type" of cast.

It is "Tonight is bigger" or "The night is bigger". You do better repeating show tunes.

Oh come on; slow day on the news front? He obviously says bigger. Two things NPH is not....a racist and stupid. There is no way he'd ruin his career by making such a dumb statement especially when he knows what it feels like to be discriminated against.

Maybe you should just pull up legit repeat stories when things are so slow and stop trying to stir the pot and find news where there's none.

yeah, it's probably better to accuse someone of being racist, rather than give them the benefit of the doubt.
