Neil deGrasse Tyson Loses His Sh*t When Rapper Claimed Earth is Flat

Rapper B.o.B came out and let everyone know he believes the earth is flat and apparently Neil deGrasse Tyson couldn’t take it and lost his shit. Not only did he feel the need to respond but he even had a rapper friend do a dis track and took to Comedy Central to drone on about it.

It almost makes you wonder why a man of his caliber would even waste his time on such a petty thing unless of course it either pissed him off like crazy (how dare someone question the establishment) or it’s because he craves fame much more so than focusing on his scientific work.

Check out how it’s spun on the Daily Beast to kiss as much a$$ as possible,

What started on Twitter spilled over into a back-and-forth diss track battle in which B.o.B. told Tyson he needs to “loosen up his vest.” Before long, Tyson had released his own response, titled “Flat to Fact,” with his nephew Stephen Tyson taking the lead. “You say that Neil’s vest is what he needs to loosen up?” he rapped. “The ignorance you’re spinning helps to keep people enslaved, I mean mentally.”

Then, last night, the feud made its way to TV. Tyson stopped by his friend Larry Wilmore’s Nightly Show on Comedy Central to set the record straight for good.

Hell yeah, he set the record straight alright and he showed off a nice set of man boobs while on Comedy Central as well. All this really boils down to is people seeking fame for themselves.

Neil deGrasse Tyson would drop his career in science for hosting his own television show in heartbeat, and that’s practically a given when you see someone devote so much time to twitter and rapper beefs.

It’s okay though because beta males in the media will spin it as much as possible in hopes of maybe getting a mention on twitter or seeming cool for once in their lives.
