Neil Patrick Harris yells at a fan on stage, and it is now causing big buzz for the actor on the Internet. Harris has left "How I Met Your Mother" behind, and he is now on Broadway performing in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." However, he was interrupted on stage, and reports started swirling that he cursed out the fan for the interruption. However, the reports only told half the story. On April 20, Entertainment Weekly reported on the incident that happened during a recent appearance.

What happened between Neil and his fan? The fan took the time to yell out 'We love you, Neil.' Neil then responded with a curse, and that made news. However, the reports did not tell the whole story about the incident. The reports had only the last bit of the exchange. Harris' rep has now spoken out about the exchange, and the exchange was not reported accurately by the media.

"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is a production that involves audience interaction. It was the Neil that received the reaction from the performer. After the shout by the fan, he questioned the other person on stage about Neil like he had no idea who Neil was. He stayed completely in-character, and it was his character that yelled back at the fan. The production continued on, and Neil's rep said it was 'all done in good fun, and fully in the context' for the performance, according to Ace Showbiz.

After the incident happened, the audience went 'crazy.' Harris' performances in this production have been earning him some attention. The fact that he has lost weight for the role has also earned him some notice as well. Harris even tweeted about the incident because he wanted people to know the real story about what happened. What do you think about Neil's shouting at the fan now?
