IMPORTANT NOTE from Dr. Castro:

Please don’t assume that I am a Democrat or Republican just because I write or mention my admiration about certain people who are registered as such. I am neither. I hold no rigid political affiliation.

I admire the human being, no matter his/her political affiliation, religion or lack thereof.

I am a true freedom thinker who do not like labels. I don’t follow hypocrites. I admire what I think it’s admirable to me, and criticise what I sincerely think has to be denounced as a bad policy, error or a crime.

Sincerely,

Dr. Martha A. Castro Noriega, MD

Neil deGrasse Tyson Exposed

 

Astrophysicist Tyson under criminal investigation

 

I don’t know if Neil deGrasse Tyson is a sexual harasser and a rapist or not. But there are serious accusations against him since the 1980’s by a woman named Tchiya Amet who says Tyson raped her and no one believed her.

Now there are three additional women, one for the first time, who say that Neil sexually harassed them. This isn’t looking good for the popular science entertainment personality.

 

MY VIEW ON THESE ACCUSATIONS AND THE ACCUSED:

 

What is upsetting and idiotic is that a lot of people in superfluous Facebook support deGrasse  “On Being Accused” statement.

 

He is under criminal investigation and I am not going to support him. No one with a little bit of gray matter would. But I understand that Facebookers are losing their capacity to think. Being in that short memory lack of respect social media platform damages people’s capacity to think logically. I pity the fool.

 

I don’t support the well-known astrophysicist, but I don’t accuse him either. I rather wait for the results of the investigation and then analyze how professional and truthful it was conducted by the detectives. I would, then, and only then, make an opinion.

 

After all, this famous (soon to be infamous?!) astrophysicist has become a very popular Hollywood figure and a sort of media cheerleader for science, instead of an actual scientist. He has forgotten to continue to study science and how to evolve as a real scientist, not a “tv scientist”.

 

Also he is stupid when talking about neuroscience, neurobiology and medical science.

This is how dumb Tyson is in his tweets. Come on, for an astrophysicist who praises himself as being “smart”, this kind of horrific mistake is just, well, pitiful.

Final Note in my View:

Right now I would not jump into conclusions that he is innocent, but I would not jump into a ranting hate speech against him either…yet.

 

ALLEGATIONS:

 

Ashley Watson, a former assistant to Tyson who says she was forced to quit her job due to his inappropriate sexual advances.

Watson says she had been working directly under Neil deGrasse, who called out Trump in 2016 by saying “he would grab him by the crotch when they met”, and that they got along well.

That all changed, however, when he invited his underling to his apartment at around 10:30 P.M. to “share a bottle of wine” and “unwind for a couple of hours”, says Watson, quoting Tyson.

 

“I was about to work for this guy, and everyone else was telling me what an amazing person he was,” Watson told BuzzFeed News on Saturday from her home in Los Angeles.

The comments on the website that published the woman’s story — calling her a “mentally disturbed individual” who “lies for a living”

 

REPORTING</2> FromAzeen Ghorayshi for BuzzFeed News:

 

With three women now making allegations on the record, the Patheos article spread far and wide, prompting Fox Broadcasting Company, which produces the show, and National Geographic, which airs it, to announce an official investigation. A spokesperson for the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where Tyson has led the Hayden Planetarium for over 20 years, said that it has never received a complaint about him, but was also looking into the allegations.

On Saturday, Tyson released a 1,600-word statement on Facebook, confirming many of the details of Watson’s and Allers’ allegations, and apologizing for what he deemed clumsy displays of affection that had been misunderstood.

He also responded to Amet’s rape allegations, his only public acknowledgment of the claims in the four years since Amet first blogged about them. He said they had been friends in graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin, and had been “intimate” on a few occasions.

 

But he denied raping her. Noting her “odd” interests in New Age healing, he suggested she had a “false memory.” (Watson, Allers, and Amet have disputed much of Tyson’s statement. Tyson declined multiple requests to comment on this story.)

 

Now a fourth woman has told BuzzFeed News her experience of sexual harassment from Tyson. In January 2010, she recalled, she joined her then-boyfriend at a holiday party for employees of the American Museum of Natural History. Tyson, its most famous employee, drunkenly approached her, she said, making sexual jokes and propositioning her to join him alone in his office.
In a 2014 email shared with BuzzFeed News, she described the incident to her own employer in order to shoot down a proposed collaboration with Tyson.

 

Over the course of nearly three years, BuzzFeed News has spoken with more than 30 people for this story, including the alleged victims and their families, Cosmos crew members, and graduate students and professors who were at UT Austin 30 years ago. Dozens more from that time did not reply to requests for interviews.

Some people interviewed felt a bit sorry about the prospect that damaging allegations might take down the world’s most famous living scientist — and perhaps the most famous black scientist in history — liked for presenting himself as a less stuffy academic
