Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson actually deserves a round of applause for uniting the Internet in hatred against him on Christmas Eve. After firing off a series of quasi-science-based snarky tweets about Santa, Neil deGrasse Tyson had the Internet so riled up that he’d actually succeeded in spreading Christmas cheer in the form of united anger directed at him. It’s kind of brilliant when you think about it that way.

It all started early in the day on Christmas Eve. The Harvard and Columbia educated celebrity astrophysicist who is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at NYC’s American Natural History Museum fired off a tweet saying he was going to send Santa tweets from his archives.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is actually a friend of ours here at BroBible. He’s been a guest on our podcast. I personally met him a few years ago at a private event held inside the planetarium and he came off as an incredibly nice man. But these tweets sucked and thankfully, the Internet let him hear it. Just let people enjoy Christmas!

This is a really nice visual he’s painted here for all of his followers. Santa vaporizing himself and his reindeer.

‘Santa doesn’t know Zooloogy’…Does he think that Santa Claus personally wrote the story of Santa Claus?

He knew what he was doing. Trolling hard on Christmas Eve while all of the parents were up wrapping presents and building toys, taking breaks to scroll Twitter and seeing him go off.

The Entire Internet Is Furious With Tyson’s Santa Tweets

When you’ve got actual astronauts telling you to chill out then you should probably take some stock of what you’re doing.

Everyone in his field knows that Neil deGrasse Tyson has a brilliant mind and is one of the most intelligent people of his generation. But going off on Santa-debunking anti-Christmas tweet tirades on Christmas Eve doesn’t do a whole lot to help sell books or raise his profile as a household name for Saturday morning science specials for the children. It’s just a weird look.
