A blogger for the New York Times apparently didn't get the memo that Dexter star Michael C. Hall is battling cancer.

As first noticed at PerezHilton, on Sunday, the Times' style blog the Moment made a surprising Twitter comment about the knit skull cap Hall wore at the Golden Globes.

"Is Michael C. Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie?" the Tweet snapped. "Don't get the hat or what he is hiding under it."

In fact, Hall, 38, disclosed Jan. 13 that he is being successfully treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma, which he called a "treatable and curable condition." His spokesperson told UsMagazine.com that the cancer is in "complete remission."

 The "Moment" blogger eventually realized the unfortunate oversight with a red-faced Tweet: "So sorry that Michael C. Hall has had cancer. Thanks for clarifying why he is wearing a knitted skull cap."

When the actor won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television drama, he joked about his Japanese hat (covering up hair loss that is often the byproduct of cancer treatment), "it is nice to have a justifiable excuse for accessorizing!" The accessory itself, he said, was "pretty simple but maybe a little fancier than your normal thing."
