Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., or better known as BoB has entered into the "earth is flat debate." Even if you haven't listened to most of his music (which I do recommend because he's great), being a rock fan you most likely have heard his song with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer.

However, being incredibly talented musically, doesn't necessarily translate to talent else where. BoB recently went to Twitter to make his claim that the Earth, is actually flat.

When asked about the edge of Earth and why no one has seen it, BoB responded with, "Have u been to the edge ? or is that what your science book told you?"

So of course something like this happens, enter famed astrophysicist and cosmologist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

BoB posted this

Tyson responded with this "Earth's curve indeed blocks 150 (not 170) ft of Manhattan. But most buildings in midtown are waaay taller than that." Tyson then added "Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.” I agree with that statement 100%. I'm not going to listen to BoB's album because of his thoughts on the Earth being flat. I'm going to listen because he's talented musically.
