Fox and National Geographic Are Investigating After Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Accused of Sexual Assault, Rape



(Newser)

Next up, Neil deGrasse Tyson? The world-famous astrophysicist is under investigation after two women claimed he behaved inappropriately with them—and an old rape claim re-emerged online, Deadline reports. Fox and National Geographic, the networks behind his show Cosmos, have joined the show’s producers in investigating the two more recent claims. “The credo at the heart of Cosmos is to follow the evidence wherever it leads,” the producers say. “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.” In a report this week by journalist and author David McAfee, Tyson is accused of feeling up an associate professor and trying to pressure his then-assistant into sex. For more:

  • The tattoo: Dr. Katelyn Allers, the Bucknell assistant prof, says she and Tyson were at an after-party for the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in 2009 when Tyson explored a solar-system tattoo on her arm and “followed the tattoo into my dress,” per Allers. “My experience with him is he’s not someone who has great respect for female bodily autonomy,” Allers says. McAfee’s blog includes photos.
