Neil deGrasse Tyson Accidentally Tweets About That Time He Fell While Trying to Take Off His Pants


We’ve all been there. We’ve all Tweeted something that we meant to text, or e-mail, or save as a note for later. Sean Spicer has done it. Even Michelle Obama isn’t immune.

But, we’re not sure we’ve all been… here. Neil deGrasse Tyson had his own Twitter mishap wherein he Tweeted something he didn’t mean to, and it’s really, really weird. Seemingly replying to a question, the astrophysicist wrote, “No. I have pretty good balance for my body size. But I have fallen over while attempting to quickly take off my pants.”

Instead of deleting it, he owned up to his mistake, and quickly followed up the Tweet with another one saying he was “responding to someone asking if [he’d] ever fallen trying to remove [his] T-shirt.”

Um, okay.
