August 5, 2019 – Neil deGrasse Tyson is facing backlash following his tweet about mass shooting statistics. The astrophysicist’s tweet came after the tragedies in El Paso and Dayton and suggested that mass shooting deaths are statistically less problematic than other issues:


The Twitter masses were fast and furious in their responses.

“Cold take, Neil. 200+ Americans died from gun violence in the past 48 hours,” author and gun control activist Shannon Watts responded.

Others mentioned that the other causes he listed were being researched or had reliable preventative measures that could be taken such as vaccines, while gun violence remains an unsolved issue.

Do you think Neil’s take on the mass shootings was offensive?
