(AllHipHop News) It's 2018 an apparently there are still debates taking place online about the shape of the planet. In case you forgot, Atlanta Hip Hop artist B.o.B made headlines in 2016 for presenting a premise that the Earth is actually flat.
B.o.B was mostly ridiculed on social media for his belief. He then got into a back-and-forth with famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and diss tracks were even released.
Another television science communicator recently took aim at the Flat Earth conspiracy theory. While speaking with Complex, Netflix star Bill Nye (aka Bill Nye The Science Guy) blasted B.o.B, Boston Celtics player Kyrie Irving, and other round world skeptics.
Nye even called Flat Earthers a "dumbass." He stated, "The Earth is not flat people. What is wrong with you?"
B.o.B addressed the Bill Nye Saves The World host in an Instagram video. He suggested "The Science Guy" look into Eric Dubay, author of The Flat Earth Conspiracy.
"I grew up watching your show, but you got the wrong guy, my friend," said Bobby Ray. "The Flat Earth information did not, by any way, start with me or my beliefs. I could point you to some books if you want to look more into it, but I think it's about time you stop picking on rappers and athletes and really step up to the plate and talk to the big dogs."
