Dude. Neil. Bro.
In my day, the word “Awesome" was reserved for things like curing Polio and walking on the Moon, not for food or TV shows.— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) April 13, 2018
It’s not the first time that Tyson has insisted on harshing mellows. Sometimes, it’s like Neil deGrasse Tyson is the anti-Dwayne Johnson — you know how The Rock can make a shitty movie fun? Tyson is the opposite of that, and needlessly so. Brilliant guy, obvs, but maybe follow Bill Nye’s lead when it comes to social interaction.
But it did inspire some enjoyable backlash.

neil degrasse tyson, breathing down my neck: what did you just say you uncultured swine. foods can't be awesome. food is nothing more than nutritional substances. they're indifferent to you and your feelings, you brainless animal.
"Tegan and Sara state that Everything is Awesome in their contribution to the 2014 animated film The Lego Movie soundtrack, when in FACT only vaccine and other scientific discoveries are awesome." - Neil deGrasse Tyson, probably.— Yis (@ym4rin) April 13, 2018
