Neil deGrasse Tyson Cuts Rapper B.o.B’s Epic Brain Fart With Some Serious Febreeze!

If you’ve been on the fence with regards to your opinion of rap, be prepared to forever hate the genre. Rapper B.o.B. of “Airplanes” fame actually believes the world is flat and that we’ve all been lied to and deceived, in his very words. It started on January 24th, when B.o.B. posted the following tweet…

bob flat earth tweet 1

He followed up this grievously stupid Tweet with the following drivel:

“I’m going up against the greatest liars in history.”

“You’ve been tremendously deceived.”

Okay. WHAT?? I didn’t know people still believed the world was flat and the fact that more than 2,000 people LIKED his Tweet is seriously concerning! Unfortunately, today’s society is more influenced by people like rappers than they are by scientists, so our children (and the simple-minded) are at a real risk of buying into this prehistoric notion.

Enter the coolest guy alive: astrophysicist and curator of the Hayden Planetarium, Neil deGrasse Tyson. In this video, Neil presents the facts in pure poetry, calling B.o.B. out for the simple fool he is – but, you know, in a totally intellectual and non-offensive way. So if you were feeling a little slow today and struggling to get your brain into gear, take solace in the fact that there are people out there who are far more ignorant than you are. It just sucks that many of them are millionaires *coughdonaldtrumpcough*

  1. Even the “lunar landing is a hoax” crowd would have to hand the crazy crown to B.o.B. This would be the most elaborate and longest running con in the history of the world.

    1. Haha! I wonder what motive B.o.B thinks there is for such a hoax? How would anyone benefit from having the world’s population believe they live on a round Earth? STAY IN SCHOOL, KIDS!!

  2. There are too many dumb people out there…….and way too many more uninformed and easily misled people that blindly follow along with those regressives. Thankfully people like Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson are fighting the good fight in the public domain.

    1. Totally agree… and it’s like Neil says – in a free society you can believe what you want to believe, but it’s when you have influence over the beliefs of others that it becomes harmful. I just can’t get over what a damn fool B.o.B is!

  3. I can’t watch the video in Canada, at least not in my part of Canada but I’m sure it was epic. I’m still shocked that scientists are ignored for the drivel spouted by celebrities. Love this post. Wish I could view the video!

    1. That’s odd! I don’t see why they would block it. Have you tried Googling “Comedy Central Neil deGrasse Tyson takes on rapper B.o.B”? Or something like that? Didn’t know Canada was THAT conservative!
