Neil deGrasse Tyson Fails to Grasp The Force Awakens


Once again, Neil deGrasse Tyson attempts to remain relevant by ridiculing Star Wars, and once again, he fails…

Neil deGrasse Tyson’s moment in the spotlight is quickly fading, and just like some sad reality television star who has realized they are no longer relevant in today’s pop-culture, he is trying to say just the right thing to get popular media to mention his name…one more time. Tweeting out his “promised” review of The Force Awakens (as if anyone really cared), Tyson delivered his banal and pedantic attempt at…scientific humor? I guess?

Again, why do we care? I guess we are reporting on it…so there’s that. Oh look, Tyson thinks Star Wars is about politics. Nice pandering you puffed-up blowfish.

He turned his attention to BB-8. Neat.

Ah, there it is. Let’s make BB-8’s rolling around all about science, because it just can’t be about movie magic, huh?

Oh, TIE Fighters aren’t real, Tyson?

You mean a planetary weapon could never be real? Really, Neil? Nobody likes you Neil, nobody.

Oh…more explanation about a fake planetary weapon, from a has-been blowhard.

No, Neil…it’s not the lack of understanding Wookie. You just aren’t liked because you try and pander to your Twitter followers by using a hashtag that brings in hundreds of thousands of people looking for info on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and you turned it into a sermon on how you and science are right, and science-fiction/fantasy is wrong…that’s why you’re isolated, you windbag.

Neil goes onto talk about parsecs, which he clearly doesn’t understand. But, if this sack of hot-air had bothered reading any information at all about the subject he is droning on about, then he would realize that Wookies do not in fact age at the same rate of humans.

Neil deGrasse Tyson continues to try and remain relevant in an industry that has obviously passed him by. When you set out to make fun of a beloved franchise just to get clicks on your Twitter handle, then people tend to despise you more than usual. Get a life Neil deGrasse Tyson and go make fun of Christmas and how it’s scientifically impossible for deer to fly or for one man to deliver presents worldwide in one night. Jerkface.
