After 5 years, Netflix gets cold revenge on Neil deGrasse Tyson


Neil deGrasse Tyson is fairly insufferable on Twitter, what with all his fun-ruining explanations and unsolicited calculations. He gets owned often, and Netflix is the latest entity to roast him. For a five-year-old tweet.

In February 2013, the astrophysicist tweeted about wanting to watch Armageddon and, naturally, took a shot at the film’s lack of awareness about the laws of physics. He noted that it wasn’t on Netflix at the time. On Friday, Netflix finally had its shot.

The tweet just needs an “actually” after the “well” and it’s a near-perfect dunk.
