Neil deGrasse Tyson Gets Skewered by Steak Company on Twitter

Twitter is a soulless hellhole where good ideas and good sense go to die. But sometimes it is worth the price of admission.

For instance, it’s really fun when self-righteous, fame-obsessed astrophysicists who insist on selling their unscientific politics as genuine scientific commentary get owned by a popular steak company account.

The left has turned the word “science” into a religion, one that completely ignores actual science. They’ve made an idol of the term to “own the cons” but in the process have made a mockery of the study of science. Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of that religion’s most popular saints. On Monday, he sent out a tweet letting everyone know that he believes in science. One can only assume, given deGrasse’s modus operandi of constant condescension, that he was aiming the declaration at those nasty Americans who actually question the effectiveness of masks and lockdowns. You’ll note that he capitalized “science” just like the faithful do for their gods.

But one brave — and tasty — steak company account decided to speak truth to power.

Who knew Steak-umm carried such resentment toward our patron saint of tv science? But then Steak-umm got straight-up educational. Hope Tyson likes his comeuppance medium-rare.

Well, okay then. There you have it. Most of the time, Twitter is a garbage pile sitting on top of a garbage mountain that juts out of a sea of garbage. But sometimes, every now and again, a random bit of wisdom rises to the top and provides a bit of a giggle in the process.

Your move, St. Neil.
