B.o.B. may not be the most famous rapper in the world, but he may be the most famous flat-earther.
That’s right: the artist who brought you “Airplanes” and “Nothin’ on You” thinks Earth is flat, and he won’t stop tweeting about it.
Apparently, B.o.B. believes the notion that NASA knows the world is flat and is trying to keep us in the dark about it.
Now, you’re probably saying to yourself, “Hasn’t he ever seen pictures of the Earth from space?” B.o.B. has seen those pictures, but he does not believe they are real.
These kinds of claims have been met with vigorous resistance, but as with any conspiracy theorist, the attention has only strengthened his resolve.
B.o.B.’s apparent attempt to assemble some kind of science-denial cult garnered ire from science crusader Neil deGrasse Tyson, who tried his best to point out the folly in B.o.B.’s argument.
No one, not even Tyson, could shake B.o.B. and his iron will.
We’ll be keeping an eye out on “B.o.B. magic flat earth watch 2016” and we’ll let you know when the Kickstarter/Patreon/PayPal donation page for his inevitable book launches.
