Neil deGrasse Tyson has the best responses to haters of his sci-fi movie critiques

The scientific term for this is, ‘Owned.’

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is probably best known for having unpopular opinions about popular science.

Whether it’s the movie Gravity or the globe in The Daily Show‘s opening credits, America’s favorite science communicator has no qualms about speaking up when the media does science wrong. But many Twitter users would rather remain in the dark.

For the latest edition of Mean Tweets, a segment he does for National Geographic’s YouTube channel to promote his StarTalk show, Tyson reads through some of the comments he’s received from people who are less-than-thankful for his constructive criticism. 

Luckily, Tyson has a great sense of humor about all of it.

“So, among all those who are inventing tomorrow? I do not expect to see JoshFromSchool among them.” Owned.
