Neil Patrick Harris apologizes for using the slur “Tranny” on live TV

Neil Patrick Harris on LIVE

Truly sorry for saying the word ‘tranny’ on Live this week. Twice! Should have been more thoughtful. Didn’t at all mean to offend.”

A tweet by Neil Patrick Harris (@actuallyNPH), who, while guest-hosting Thursday morning on Live! With Kelly, inhaled sulfur hexafluoride, which deepened his voice. Harris joked that it made him sound like Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs (“Put the lotion in the basket.”) When his voice returned to normal, he said, “I’ve never sounded more like a tranny in my life.” (Towleroad.com)
