  • Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson spent his Christmas Eve trolling on Twitter and successfully pissed off tens of millions of people
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson fired off some tweets about Santa, his reindeer, his diet, and more that caused everyone online to Dunk on Tyson on Christmas Eve

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson actually deserves a round of applause for uniting the Internet in hatred against him on Christmas Eve. After firing off a series of quasi-science-based snarky tweets about Santa, Neil deGrasse Tyson had the Internet so riled up that he’d actually succeeded in spreading Christmas cheer in the form of united anger directed at him. It’s kind of brilliant when you think about it that way.

It all started early in the day on Christmas Eve. The Harvard and Columbia educated celebrity astrophysicist who is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at NYC’s American Natural History Museum fired off a tweet saying he was going to send Santa tweets from his archives.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is actually a friend of ours here at BroBible. He’s been a guest on our podcast. I personally met him a few years ago at a private event held inside the planetarium and he came off as an incredibly nice man. But these tweets sucked and thankfully, the Internet let him hear it. Just let people enjoy Christmas!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Tries To Ruin Christmas With Bad Santa Tweets

Tweets from my Santa Archive. All day today. Stay tuned…

Since the Northern Arctic is just ocean, Santa’s North Pole workshop has only ever existed on a floating sheet of ice.

Images that portray Santa’s workshop with pine trees and snow-capped hills on the horizon are geographically underinfomred.

If people left carrots, celery, & hot tea for Santa on the table instead of milk & cookies, I bet he’d be much, much thinner.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

This is a really nice visual he’s painted here for all of his followers. Santa vaporizing himself and his reindeer.

For Santa to deliver gifts to all world’s Christians in one night requires hypersonic speeds through Earth’s lower atmosphere, vaporizing his reindeer & sleigh.

Just sayin’.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

Santa is pale because he’s in the middle of six months of darkness on Earth’s North Pole. And he delivers gifts only at night.

Random Santa Fact:

Longitude lines are the boundaries of Time Zones. So at the North Pole, where all lines of longitude meet, clock-time has no meaning.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

Santa surely keeps track of how many hours pass & how long the Elf union allows them to work, but on the North Pole, where all Time-Zones meet, the actual time of day has no meaning.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

How does weight change if Earth stops turning?

Santa on the North Pole weighs the same as ever. Everyone else loses the centrifugal force, which peaks at the Equator.

There, a 150 pound person weighs 1/2 pound more.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

As Earth warms, and Arctic ice melts, Santa will lose his habitat too. We may one day see photos of him clutched to an ice floe.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

Santa knows Physics:

Of all colors, Red Light penetrates fog best. That’s why Benny the Blue-nosed reindeer never got the gig.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

Something Einstein’s Theory of Relativity never considered:

Maybe Santa’s Reindeer are stationary, and it is we who fly past them on Christmas Eve.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 24, 2021

‘Santa doesn’t know Zooloogy’…Does he think that Santa Claus personally wrote the story of Santa Claus?

Santa doesn’t know Zoology:

Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.

So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered.

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (@neiltyson) December 25, 2021

He knew what he was doing. Trolling hard on Christmas Eve while all of the parents were up wrapping presents and building toys, taking breaks to scroll Twitter and seeing him go off.

The Entire Internet Is Furious With Tyson’s Santa Tweets

When you’ve got actual astronauts telling you to chill out then you should probably take some stock of what you’re doing.

There is a time to a scientist and a time to be a regular person. Christmas is a time to be a regular person Neil. We all know you are smart ok?

— Jose Hernandez (@Astro_Jose) December 26, 2021

Being pedantically correct for a living is getting less & less endearing, dude

— Matt Jones (@othermattjones) December 24, 2021

“In the Scandinavian and Arctic Circle populations, old males’ antlers fall off in late December, young males’ fall off in the early spring “ it is possible for them to be male and have antlers

— R.I.P SEALAB 2021 (@CalvinBenefield) December 25, 2021

Santa delivers all presents at the same time (according to time zone of course) as long as the wave function is not collapsed.
This is why it’s important that no children stay up and observe the delivery of presents.

— Frank Ashe (@frankashe) December 24, 2021

Wow now I don’t believe in Santa, thanks a lot, Neil.

— Cody Johnston (@drmistercody) December 25, 2021

Neil, if they can fly, it’s obvious that Santa can make male reindeers keep their antlers.

— Conor Mcgroover (@ConorMCGroover) December 25, 2021

You couldn’t have just stopped ruining things when you demoted Pluto?

— MJfromBuffalo (@mjfrombuffalo) December 24, 2021

Santa can deliver $1 trillion worth of Christmas gifts in a single night clearly he’s magical enough to eat a few million cookies and be good

— Stephen Sawyer (@stephenvsawyer) December 24, 2021

But can you kiss yourself

— Royce Lopez (@hippojuicefilm) December 24, 2021

Everyone in his field knows that Neil deGrasse Tyson has a brilliant mind and is one of the most intelligent people of his generation. But going off on Santa-debunking anti-Christmas tweet tirades on Christmas Eve doesn’t do a whole lot to help sell books or raise his profile as a household name for Saturday morning science specials for the children. It’s just a weird look.
