October 19, 2020 / Posted by:

Today in Not Now Neil deGrasse Tyson! news, Neil DeGrasse Tyson says that there’s an asteroid heading for earth that could “clip the planet” on November 2nd, the day before the Presidential Election. Not now, NGT, we have enough to worry about without having to endure another one of your painfully nerdy and wildly inappropriate attempts at seduction. Neil went on to say that the asteroid isn’t “big enough to cause harm,” but that doesn’t mean we want it giving us a “special” Native American handshake without our consent!

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Apologized (Sort Of) For A Tweet About This Weekend’s Mass Shootings

August 5, 2019 / Posted by:

Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose personal tagline should be “In space, nobody can hear you consent”, used his purportedly big brain to play Captain “Well, Actually” and #tooktotwitter to offer his perspective on the carnage that took place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio over the weekend. Neil’s tweet was callous, pedantic, and irrelevant in equal measures, and he then had the nerve to be surprised when Twitter collectively told him he could shove it up his ass. Neil’s tweet was the scientific equivalent of thoughts and prayers, only hollower and more meaningless.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Responded To Those Sexual Misconduct Accusations

December 2, 2018 / Posted by:

Round-earther and television astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been accused by both a colleague and a former assistant of sexual harassment. Those allegations follow a 2014 rape accusation made against him by musician Tchiya Amet who claims that Neil drugged and raped her when they were fellow graduate students in 1984. Suffice to say, his lovable TV science nerd persona has been called into question. Neil responded to the allegations in a long post on Facebook (the whole thing is after the cut). He admits to some questionable behavior but denies that he was consciously sexually harassing anyone and says that he was intimate with Ms. Amet on more than one occasion but that it was consensual. No one’s responded to my request from yesterday for someone to assure me that Bill Nye is still on the up-and-up. I’m going to need that after writing about this story.

This one stings almost as much as the Joss Whedon one. And the George Takei one. And Scott Baio. That last one was to verify if you’re still paying attention. And to illustrate that all of your heroes or role models are probably lying and evil. According to Variety, sexual misconduct accusations against astrophysicist and beloved TV science bae Neil deGrasse Tyson are being investigated by Fox and the producers of Neil’s show Cosmos.

ConDRAGulations! RuPaul Finally Won An Emmy!

September 12, 2016 / Posted by:

Before we fully get into the river of depressing smegma that this news week will probably bring, let’s raise a wig and celebrate some happy news: RuPaul finally got his hands around his first Emmy after being in the TV game for eons. HalleluRu!

If award shows always got it right, Ru would’ve gotten his first Emmy in the 90s for Best And Most Glamorous Talk Show host for Vh1’s The RuPaul Show. But since award shows mostly never get it right, that didn’t happen. It only took 20 years, but the title “Emmy-winning RuPaul” is finally a fact.
