Neil Patrick Harris' Super Bowl Promo Draws Controversy

Neil Patrick Harris‘ promo for the upcoming Super Bowl for CBS has drawn controversy from conservative groups who slam the ad for “mocking Christianity”.

The ad features the 39-year-old actor wearing eye black on his cheeks with the game date – Feb. 3, 2013 – written in white over the black. This is similar to the image featuring Super Bowl halftime show performer Beyonce.

“CBS, the television network airing the big game this year, is now using an outspoken homosexual actor to mimic Tim Tebow’s style of trumpeting messages in eyeblack on his face,” a conservative writer wrote (via Huffington Post), which sparked discussion around the web.

Pictured inside: Neil picking up some items at a Bed, Bath, and Beyond store on Sunday (January 6) in Los Angeles.
