National Geographic Channel has pulled Neil deGrasse Tyson’s pop culture and science talk show, StarTalk, from the air while Fox Networks Group investigates multiple claims of sexual misconduct against the celebrity astrophysicist.
At the end of November, two women came forward to accuse Tyson of sexual misconduct. One woman, a physics and astronomy professor who knew Tyson through professional circles, said he groped her at a party in 2009. The other, a former assistant of Tyson’s, said he propositioned her for sex and told her she was too “distracting” to advance in her career.
The accusations weren’t the first against Tyson, however. Following several blog posts over the years, a woman named Tchiya Amet, spoke out again in 2017 about how Tyson drugged and raped her when they were both grad students in 1984.
Don't worry, everyone. I'm sure Matthew will be along shortly to debunk everything and inform us he has 100% knowledge of the events and that all women are vindictive Nazis.
