|B.o.B takes on Neil deGrasse Tyson.|
The most unusual feud in entertainment. Atlanta rapper/singer B.o.B taking on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. This stemmed from an argument over the Earth. The rapper is a flat-earther and he's adamant about it.
I'm so shocked but not surprised that B.o.B would tick off one of the coolest nerds in the world.
B.o.B went to social media to talk about the Earth being flat. The rapper rejects claims about the Earth being round. He mocks the scientific community and it touched a nerve with Neil.
So on social media, Bobby Ray went to the Twitterverse to explain his thoughts on the Earth being flat.
The cities in the background are approx. 16miles apart... where is the curve ? please explain this pic.twitter.com/YCJVBdOWX7— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
Good Job Guys 👍🏾 pic.twitter.com/GWFzfQDfNu— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
A lot of people are turned off by the phrase "flat earth" ... but there's no way u can see all the evidence and not know... grow up— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 25, 2016
Of course, Neil answered B.o.B's concerns with a few choice words.
Dear @bobatl, as an astrophysicist I don’t rap, but I know people who do. This one has my back: https://t.co/BbMi4tzHLz— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) January 26, 2016
When B.o.B got whiff of Neil's response, he went into the studio and punched his card.
The song Flatline went after Neil and used a notorious Holocaust denier David Irving in his lyrics.
Of course, he went back to Twitter to slam the scientist.
Once you go flat, you never go back— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
they want me to be a "good little rapper" and sing and dance and don't question things...— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016
I'm going up against the greatest liars in history ... you've been tremendously deceived— B.o.B (@bobatl) January 26, 2016

So once again, Neil goes to The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to drop the mic on B.o.B.
The scientist responded to a B.o.B. diss by schooling the rapper on exactly why he's wrong, making points about Calculus and B.o.B.'s "size" relative to Earth.
|Neil deGrasse Tyson explains gravity to B.o.B by dropping the mic. He burned the Atlanta rapper.|
He added, "And, by the way, this is called gravity!"
Neil let him have it. He said that influential celebrities such as B.o.B have a right to say the Earth is flat. But if you're broadcasting that to an audience who antagonizes common sense and reality, you've proven to the world you're an idiot. He basically said, entertainers such as B.o.B, as well as politicians (i.e. Donald Trump and Ted Cruz) are pretty much "Flatline".
The song that was posted by Neil was called Flat to Fact (a take on Back to Back by Drake).
It goes hard on Bobby Ray....
But what you're going to love is the video of Neil deGrasse Tyson on The Nightly Show.
Any thoughts on this feud?
