Actor Neil Patrick Harris has been under social media scrutiny recently following a photo that surfaced from a party he had in 2011 during a Halloween party where he had a cake about singer Amy Winehouse who had died a few months before.
The internet remembers
11 years ago, Neil Patrick Harris had a Halloween party where he had a cake that read “The Corpse of Amy Winehouse”, there was a photo that was immediately deleted, but now has resurfaced.
The photo was posted by Justin Mikita, where there was a corpse lookalike of the recently deceased soul singer where she seemed decomposed and with her mouth openly destroyed.
When the photo resurfaced it quickly went viral
A writer by the name of Ashley Reed posted the screenshot of the tweet before it was eliminated and it went viral instantly, the post quoted “I cannot believe how many very online people over the age of 25 are just now finding out about Neil Patrick Harris’s disgusting Amy Winehouse cake,”
“Yea Neil Patrick Harris quite literally had a cake mimicking Amy Winehouse’s corpse for Halloween soon after she died. I’ve loathed that man ever since,” she continued on Twitter.
Twitter was full of opinions
“Yeah I had no idea he did this grotesque thing til the other day and I just have no f – – king respect for that person anymore,”. A user commented
Another one added “Society is way overdue for a discussion about the way Amy Winehouse was treated in the early 2000s and 2010s by the misogynistic celebrity media machine and the people who were a captive audience to it. Neil Patrick Harris’ f – – ked up corpse cake is just the tip of the iceberg.”
A cake critic also weighed in “What is wrong with Neil Patrick Harris?
That’s so disturbing,” “I can no longer enjoy a ‘Series of Unfortunate Events’ on @netflix, and any of his further projects, because I just found out Neil Patrick Harris commissioned a cake of Amy Winehouse’s corpse for a Halloween party. Subhuman behavior,”
It set Reddit on fire
Right after, the picture went to Reddit and users were not shy to show their disapproval of the actor’s dessert choices, they even created a subreddit about it.
There was another redditer that wrote, “Wtf I wasn’t expecting the cake to be that graphic, this is so sick.” Another Reddit user chimed in: “WOW. This is so wildly inappropriate. My jaw dropped.”
“What in the actual f – – k!? I can’t believe I had no idea and I LOVE celebrity gossip. This is absolutely vile,” a user noted. “I’m literally nauseous right now after viewing that. So wrong and in poor taste,” another one commented.
