Following in the tradition of Jimmy Kimmel and numerous other celebrities, Bill Nye took to social media to read aloud mean tweets directed towards everyone’s favorite Science Guy.
The video of Nye taking on his haters has gone viral for a good cause as Nye is attempting to spread awareness for a Kickstarter fundraising campaign for a fan-made documentary titled the The Bill Nye Film.
Nye has enjoyed a resurgence over the past few years after briefly fading into obscurity after his beloved 90s science education program went off the air. Despite his renewed popularity, Nye apparently still has plenty of detractors.
Mean tweets ranged from climate change deniers to creationism defenders. Others voiced their disdain for Nye’s personality itself, calling him “annoying” and “trippy.”
Nye stood his ground however and shut down his haters in a firm, but likeable manner which most of us associate with Bill Nye the Science Guy.
