Fox, National Geographic, and the producers of Cosmos are investigating new allegations of sexual misconduct against Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Hollywood Reporter posted:

Two women came forward with claims of inappropriate sexual advances in a story in Patheos on Thursday. In 2014 a first accuser, a former classmate of deGrasse Tyson's at the University of Texas in Austin, accused him of rape in a blog post.

“We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson. We take these matters very seriously and we are reviewing the recent reports," Fox and National Geographic said in a statement.

The producers of Cosmos added in their own statement, "The credo at the heart of COSMOS is to follow the evidence wherever it leads. The producers of COSMOS can do no less in this situation. We are committed to a thorough investigation of this matter and to act accordingly as soon as it is concluded.”

They previously ordered a second season of Cosmos (with Tyson still hosting) that was scheduled to premiere sometime next year

Good long piece about Terry Crews and when he was assaulted.

Edit:

Can we not link Daily Mail accusations until a news source that doesn't constantly lie corraborates the story . I'm not saying those stories are necessarily false, but they've published a lot of untrue stories about celebrities in the past, not just about sexual assault, but standard gossip stuff too.

This Patheos article has more details about the allegations, including stuff like this:

quote:

Specifically, Watson said Tyson occasionally made “misogynistic comments,” and that he kept a list of overweight actresses on his phone to prove that women aren’t inhibited by portrayals in the media when it comes to health and fitness. He allegedly said it was untrue that women feel pressured to be skinny based on societal standards.

And while I don’t explicitly remember searching for Pluto at the top of her shoulder, it is surely something I would have done in that situation. ... I was reported to have “groped” her by searching “up her dress”, when this was simply a search under the covered part of her shoulder of the sleeveless dress.

It sounds like you do explicitly remember, but you gotta make sure to add that plausible deniability if this ever goes to trial.

I remember reading that one when it was posted in I think the Fantasy/Sci-fi thread, thinking that something absolutely monstrous must have happened since the blogger seemed so reluctant to spell out the details. But then at the end all I could gather was that she had been lied to while the guy was cheating on her. A real rear end in a top hat move by the guy, but her saying "[She] was set up, groomed, emotionally manipulated, sexually exploited" might be an accurate description, yet it sounds a lot worse than "He cheated on me during our relationship". Was a while ago and I'm not a native English speaker so very possible I missed something.

Yeah that’s incredibly long and by the end I’m still not sure what she’s saying happened.

Well no, it was "he manipulated me into sex while also manipulating a ton of other women, some of whom I worked with, into sex the exact same way at the same time". She also seemed to insinuate it was like, really nasty or degrading sex or something?

Basically he's a piece-of-poo poo PUA and apparently a misogynist who liked to pick on and use successful woman because that got him off. Because of some sick power-trip thing.

Actually, that was pretty sad. It’s not very nice to bully a person who’s in a bad place and isn’t allowed to work even though he didn’t commit a crime or anything. His apology was the sincere one. Obviously, it wasn’t written by some PR team and he admitted that his behavior wasn’t ok. It wasn’t criminally wrong or anything like that. He could have lied like every other scumbag.

Heckling is risky, cause a lot of comedians have prepared a ton of material specifically for hecklers.

It's actually weird that he hasn't done that, especially since he had that whole scene in season 1(?) where a woman heckles him and he just jizzes comebacks all over her & then she wants to gently caress, according to his comedian buddies. And iirc it's supposed to be based on a true story, or one that he told to Opie & Anthony like years earlier.

Maybe not since he started doing theaters but his material was always dirty so he definitely got dirty heckles, there's no question. Strangely there aren't any heckling clips to find on youtube that aren't rebranded versions from his own show or him telling stories on various talkshows?

Anyway, this old clip is him talking about how it made him feel to be heckled one time, and his reactions and feelings are very interesting I think:

It's probably been a very long time since he's been heckled. Before the whole masturbation thing he was selling out concert halls, no one is going to pay what it costs to be within earshot of him just to try and ruin his set, and for this comeback tour, so far it's probably mostly been people too shocked to see him to be able to heckle. I hope this story goes viral and inspires a slew of copycats.

There's just no argument he or the club can possibly make that he's entitled a heckler free set, because they keep doing this poo poo where he pops up unannounced for a "surprise performance". Nobody is there because they thought they'd have a nice evening out listening to a sex pest try to begin his comeback, they have every right to tell you to gently caress off.

Your prepared material only works if you can keep your cool because the person just said something stupid that doesn't actually pertain to something personal about you. It's hard to come back from something that's specifically crafted from something in your life that's targeted to just remind everyone in the room what an awful piece of poo poo you are. That person wasn't heckling because she was wasted or just came there to talk to her friends over the show or because she thought he wasn't funny, really - it's barely even a heckle at that point, it's just straight up a situationally appropriate form of protest.

And even with the former scenario, I've found that there are way less videos of comedians "owning" hecklers than there are videos of comedians just having meltdowns on stage that live and die on just how much a boorish mass of sycophants their fans are.

The surprise performance thing is apparently a common deal in comedy for bigger names and isn't at all exclusive to Louis CK.

That being said, the reason that comedians like doing these performances is so you get a reaction from real people who aren't necessarily fans rather than the reaction of people who paid $100 for a ticket, and "people are super pissed at you for whipping your dick out in front of your colleagues" seems like valuable feedback that he should take into consideration.

There's a slight difference between Bill Burr or Kevin Hart testing some new material before going on tour and someone who has been publicly ostracised for sexual abuse trying to make a comeback.

If I was at some random during open mike night and someone like Billie Joe Armstrong came out to do an unannounced acoustic set I'd be excited even though I don't like Green Day that much. If Gary Glitter did the same thing I'd be pretty loving upset with the venue.

True, I'm not a comedian. CK has been in the industry since like 1990, it's either very shameful or very calculated that he did not have a comeback to her heckle. That's all I'm saying.
