B.o.B Claims Earth Is Flat, Gets Shut Down By Neil DeGrasse Tyson


Despite overwhelming scientific evidence that has proven many myths and old wives’ tales wrong over the centuries, there are some people who still cling to those false beliefs. Rapper B.o.B is one of those people and he was more than willing to let everyone know this when he posted the following on Twitter:

“A lot of people are turned off by the phrase “flat earth” … but there’s no way u can see all the evidence and not know… grow up”

Needless to say, reactions were numerous and loaded with scientific facts to prove just how absurd the rapper’s original statement was. The rapper stood his ground and claimed that all of it was nothing but “force-fed information” and came up with his own piece of “evidence” to support his claim. Unfortunately for him, that’s when Neil DeGrasse Tyson decided to explain a few things.

The rapper refused to be swayed by Tyson’s reasoning (!) and even went as far as to write a song dissing heliocentrism, titled “Flatline.” Guess some people just can’t admit when they’re wrong!
