Neil deGrasse Tyson for being a real bite-in-the-arse

Neil deGrasse Tyson had no idea on Twitter, and Merriam-Webster was enough.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is a real bite for people using the word ‘awesome’ (no, we’re not kidding), and now we have to write some information about Netflix.

Really a world!

Really alive time!

And the fact that this Twitter is five years makes the dunk even more impressive.

Poor baby.

On Thursday, the astrophysicists decided to publish a complaint about the word “Awesome.” He was obviously tired of the word and believed that these words were abused by young people today.

The language and throwing shadow master Merriam-Webster promptly received a tweet prompt and responded to the only method.

“In my day, the word ‘Awesome’ was reserved for things like curing Polio and walking on the Moon, not for food or TV shows,” Tyson tweeted, and UGH, dude, could you be slightly less of a grumpy old man nerd, please?

After seeing this genius man tweet such a dumb, insufferable, failed attempt at being cool, Merriam-Webster replied with a simple yet suitable burn.

One word: Neil. (WITH a period, to really drive the point of “please stop” home.)

Twitter users rallied behind Merriam-Webster with support, also taking shots at the astrophysicist’s tweet.
