B.o.B Insists the World Is Flat: 'There's No Way You Can See All the Evidence and Not Know'

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars … oh, and also that the world is flat?

On Sunday night and Monday morning, hip hop artist B.o.B took to Twitter to express his views regarding the shape of the Earth – he says it’s flat – and the vast #NASA cover-up that has tricked millions into believe that the Earth is round.

“Don’t believe what I say, research what I say,” the “Airplanes” rapper tweeted, after facing an almost immediate backlash. “You can regurgitate force fed information all day … still doesn’t change physics.”

B.o.B. tweeted about his position for hours. His biggest piece of evidence? His personal experience on an airplane, when he witnessed the Red Bull jump happening five miles away. There was no curve between him and the Red Bull balloon. This proved that the world was actually flat because he would have seen a curve if it weren’t.

He then tweeted several pictures of the earth that he believes illustrate the planet’s irrefutable flatness.

The rapper knows his views are out there, but refuses to be cast aside as a looney. “Don’t try to back me into the “conspiracy theorist” corner don’t be fooled. I speak from personal experience,” he tweeted on Sunday.

B.o.B is not alone in his distrust of hundreds of years of scientific data. In 2007, The View host Sherri Shepherd infamously stated that she wasn’t sure whether the world was round or flat.

Naturally, famed scientist/Internet hero Neil deGrasse Tyson won’t let the rapper’s “regressive” tweets stand.

Tyson finished him off with an elegant quip: “Being five centuries regressed in your reasoning doesn’t mean we all can’t still like your music.”
