Neil Patrick Harris Rejects "Crazy Vegan" Parenting Advice

I’m of the mindset that Neil Patrick Harris, of How I Met Your Mother, can do no wrong— he’s just that likable. But yesterday, he visited the ladies of The Talk, and said some things that quite frankly were a little rough to listen to.

The actor and his partner, David Burtka, are the recent parents of twins through the help of a surrogate, and apparently vegan co-host of The Talk, Sara Gilbert, gave Harris some parenting advice.

When asked if he’d followed any of her recommendations, he responded, “Well, you’re a crazy, granola person, weirdest advice ever.” When pressed as to what Gilbert specifically told him to do, he said, “Not to vaccinate for ages and only feed them certain, weird foods,” ending with, “You’re a crazy vegan.”

Every parent has their own way of raising their children, and Gilbert, like many other vegetarians and vegans, likely finds vaccines to be ethically questionable, as some of the formulas contain animal components to them.

The clip of the interview is below, what do you think of Harris’ comments?
