‘Cosmos’ Host Neil deGrasse Tyson To Be Investigated By Fox, Nat Geo & Producers After New Sexual Mi

Neil deGrasse Tyson is like a click bait headline in human form. Not surprising at all that these allegations are coming out. I have a certain fake "medical" doctor in mind who might be next.

The action follows a report by David McAfee, in which Dr. Katelyn N. Allers, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Bucknell University, claimed that Tyson groped her at an after-party following a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in 2009, while Tyson’s former assistant Ashley Watson said she was forced to quit her job over his inappropriate sexual advances.

The two women join musician Tchiya Amet, who a year ago accused Tyson of raping her while both were grad students. In a recent interview, she revealed additional details about the alleged incident.

Hmm... the 'new' sexual misconduct allegations are (over?) 9 years old.

Lost all respect for this man ever since he inserted global warming fantasy into his "science".. I mean, he's a damn scientist and he's grandstanding for a scientific claim this is unsupported by the scientific evidence.. Oh, and Carl Sagan is turning in his grave!

That's practically yesterday compared to allegations I've seen made against others.

Yeah, if only he'd listen to Sean Hannity regarding an extremely complex scientific topic.

Didn't that go out the window a few months back?

They tried to end presumption of innocence, but I believe it backfired on them. Even women saw it as a witch hunt.

Re: ‘Cosmos’ Host Neil deGrasse Tyson To Be Investigated By Fox, Nat Geo & Producers After New Sexua

No word of a lie, a couple weeks ago my son was watching one of Tyson's talks on youtube and I thought to myself, "I wonder when this guy will be accused of sexual assault."

To be fair, I ask this question about a lot of famous men who are "experts" I see on TV because #metoo has shown us that a lot of men in positions of authority tend to abuse their subordinates and colleagues. They also tend to use their power to construct reality for the rest of society so that nobody will be the wiser. It grosses me out.

But that's the state of patriarchy in the modern world which is now being exposed. I'm glad we continue to clean house.
