It wasn’t just angry fans of “How I Met Your Mother who took to Twitter following the controversial series finale. The show’s stars Josh Radnor, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders, as well as its two co-creators, also expressed their thoughts on the social media site.

Harris tweeted, “To all who helped create #HIMYM, well played. To all who enjoyed watching it, I respectfully request the highest of fives. #thanks.” Radnor wrote, “Been so overwhelmed in the best way by all the HIMYM love. Beyond grateful to have been a part of a show that’s meant so much to people.” And Hannigan posted a video taken during the finale’s taping (see below).

While creator Carter Bays simply thanked “#HIMYM fans everywhere for the amazing loyalty and team spirit. You guys are the absolute bestest. Highest of fives to you all,” co-creator Craig Thomas acknowledged not everyone was happy. In a series of tweets, Thomas noted, “We wrote a comedy with dramatic elements till the very end. Thanks for taking that ride with us. #HIMYM… We did a finale about life’s twists and turns and that is not always what happens…but THANKS.” “Seriously – no matter what you thought of tonight, THANK YOU…you were with us.
