Neil deGrasse Tyson’s show pulled from the air as sexual misconduct probe continues

 

Jan 5, 2019, 12:37 pm

 

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.

Internet culture turned on him a while ago for being a general wanker. Still though, I'd wait and see what comes of it. The public's idea of judgement is not very good.

Probably more made up crap. Why not wait until it is proven to pull the show? Oh'yess, we have to destroy every popular mans life on t.v iin this country.

 

This metoo shit needs to fucking stop. This up front smear campaign is wrong.

You damn straight I will come along to say that the evidence is needed to destroy a mans life as one is innocent until proven guilty.  After what happened a few months ago to that judge that has been shown to have been nothing more then a witch hunt as he was totally cleared this metoo crap officially needs to die. This kind of crap shouldn't happen in the public sphere as it is no better then a witch hunt and destroys the jury pool for the accused. The effects on justice is the real crime.

 

If you think otherwise you're a nazi and a fascist. You're 100% right about that.

Why not pull the show until the situation is resolved, then release it after he is cleared, as they are seemingly planning to do?

 

Its weird that you don't seem able to see a difference between:

 

"Man accused of shit: Investigation ongoing"

and

"Man given lethal injection without trial because woman says he looked at her funny in 1965"

 

A lot of your responses would make sense if dealing with the second situation, but seem wildly misogynistic when discussing the first.

 

There's a big difference between taking accusations seriously and punishing people with no trial, but it seems like anything other than ignoring the (alleged) victims completely unless they can somehow produce evidence with no investigation is political correctness gone mad to you?
