‘Oh NO he di’nt!’ Neil deGrasse Tyson drops a WHOLE lotta data on U.S. deaths that trigger gun-grabbers (poor Smash Mouth!)

Neil deGrasse Tyson made a whole lotta people mad on Twitter by dropping a whole lotta data on other causes of death in the USA.
Take a look.
In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.

On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

500 to Medical errors
300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents
40 to Homicide via Handgun

Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.

‘Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.’
Huh.
Guess how this went over with our friendly, neighborhood gun-grabbers who have spent the last 24+ hours demanding law-abiding Americans turn over their guns.
We're working to prevent medical errors.
We're working to prevent the flu.
We're working to prevent suicide.
We're working to prevent car accident.
We're doing fuck all about mass shootings.

Spot the difference, Neil.

We’re working to prevent medical errors? Huh.
Alrighty.

You guys remember Smash Mouth, right? The guys famous for the Shrek song.
Heh.
They seem really angry, right?
I guess that makes racist, white supremacist mass murders just normal. Thanks for the clarification, Professor.

Not what he said.
A: [pokes scientist in eye]
Scientist: "Ow!"
A: Your "Ow" is illogical. That's mere cellular death and all of those cells were going to die anyway.

How do you not see the difference between an honest medical error and someone being needlessly killed by a white supremacist? Stick to gatekeeping science

Yeah! How dare you not exploit certain deaths more for an agenda!
We’re still not sure where these facts are coming from … where are we working to prevent car accidents? And the flu?
This is a terrible tweet. Factual, sure. Just not appropriate as we process two truly preventable tragedies.

They are so ticked.
Bad take, plus cherry-picked data. Every day, 100 Americans are killed by guns, and hundreds more are injured. Unlike medicine, cars, or sneezing, guns are designed to serve one purpose: to kill someone from a distance. 100 percent of gun deaths are unnecessary and avoidable

Did this account really just ‘well ackshully’ Neil?
HA HA HA HA HA
Gosh! I am so ashamed I paid money to go see your show. What a truly idiotic thing to say. Trying to play down this tragedy. Of course we know people die of diseases. We are all doing our best to fight against it. What are we doing to fight against white nationalistic terrorism?

He wasn’t downplaying the tragedies.
He was pointing out how many people die every day.
That’s it.
Neil,

I used to think that you were as cool as the other side of the pillow.

Now I just think you're COLD.

Ooh, sick burn.
Wait, not really.
This is Neil admitting he's a Republican. Downplaying these tragedies goes against logic - *unless* you are Wealthy and more concerned about making money and not paying taxes. Priorities. He's downplaying this to protect his bank and stock portfolio.
