Neil deGrasse Tyson Releases Defiant (and Long) Defense Against #MeToo Allegations

Neil deGrasse has written at length responding to sexual misconduct from associate physics professor who says Tyson groped her after taking a picture with her in 2009. A former assistant of his also says he made sexual advances towards her. And there are those nasty rape allegations from a few decades ago. For some odd reason he included a stock image with the post, and gave it the headline “On Being Accused.”

Tyson detailed the encounters from his perspective, explaining why his examination of a woman’s tattoo under her dress, a comment about hugs, and a wine and cheese party for two were all innocent.

Let’s all congratulate Bill Nye for getting to host Cosmos next season.
