Utterly ignorant and classless, Mr. Woods. In a #Tweet, the veteran actor warned the parents to watch out until their son grows up and realizes what they have done to him.
The former How I Met Your Mother star, who knows the family shown in the picture, took James to task on Twitter on Tuesday night (11Jul17) by retweeting the actor's message and writing, "Utterly ignorant and classless, Mr. Woods". "I'm friends with this family".
The actor was quickly faced with backlash, and Harris wasted no time responding to the tweet. "You know not of what you speak, and should be ashamed of yourself", Harris wrote.
Human Rights Campaign emphasized the importance of accepting and loving all children regardless of their preference.
"Thank you @ActuallyNPH for taking a stand against this vulgar & hateful statement", the message read.

For her part, Lori Duron, the mother in the photo in question, expressed the love and pride she holds for her son in a recent blog post entitled "My Gender Creative Son's First Pride" on her website Raising My Rainbow.
Apparently, the gesture did not please the "White House Down" star who sarcastically attacked the couple for attending a Pride parade with their child.
This wouldn't be the first time Woods' tweets have offended.
In May, he made headlines for a homophobic tweet about Anderson Cooper following the CNN reporter's interview with Kellyanne Conway.
Woods responded, "Hard to say "I love you, Mom" from a medical waste dumpster." adding the hashtag, "DefundPP".
