Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson accused of sexual harassment

December 3, 2018 222

After being accused of sexual misconduct by two women, famous astrophysicist and TV personality Neil deGrasse Tyson has said he will cooperate fully with an “impartial investigation” into allegations.

What happened?

Tyson has been the host of the famous science show “Cosmos” with Fox and National Geographic, both of which have stated that they would fully investigate the matter. The allegations were made public by the religious website, where two women accused Tyson of behaving in a sexually inappropriate manner with them.

Tyson’s Response

In response to these allegations, Tyson wrote in a public post on facebook: “For a variety of reasons, most justified, some unjustified, men accused of sexual impropriety in today’s ‘me-too’ climate are presumed to be guilty by the court of public opinion. Emotions bypass due process, people choose sides, and the social media wars begin.”

“In any claim, evidence matters. Evidence always matters. But what happens when it’s just one person’s word against another’s, and the stories don’t agree? That’s when people tend to pass judgment on who is more credible than whom. And that’s when an impartial investigation can best serve the truth – and would have my full cooperation to do so.”

“I’ve recently been publicly accused of sexual misconduct. These accusations have received a fair amount of press in the past 48 hours, unaccompanied by my reactions. In many cases, it’s not the media’s fault. I declined comment on the grounds that serious accusations should not be adjudicated in the press. But clearly I cannot continue to stay silent.”

The astrophysicist then denied in detail the accusation that he groped a woman and that he made inappropriate advances towards a production assistant when he invited her to his house to share wine and cheese. Tyson apologized for making the production assistant feel uncomfortable.

He then discussed another claim, dating from a relationship in graduate school, which he said “was used as a kind of solicitation-bait by at least one journalist to bring out of the woodwork anybody who had any encounter with me that left them uncomfortable”.

Tyson has maintained that he is open and would cooperate with investigation into the matter.
