Rapper B.o.B thinks the joke’s been on us for hundreds of years—claiming the Earth is flat in a series of tweets to his 2 million followers on Monday. Without paying any homage to the concept of gravity, the Georgia native who dropped out of high school to pursue a record deal, fills us in on a stale conspiracy he thinks is reality.
His physics lesson goes on through more than 25 tweets over a span of 20 hours. Trending on Twitter and Facebook, the Grammy-nominated artist garnered a lot of reaction, including a few words from renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The rapper also posted a couple YouTube videos that showcase conspiracy theories surrounding the the Zionists, Freemasons, and NASA. Twitter, as usual, took the humorous route in dragging the rap star.
Bob questioning physics because his tape didn’t make a wave when it dropped.

Moral of the story? Stay away from conspiracy videos on YouTube and definitely don’t use them as evidence in your argument with a world-renowned astrophysicist.
