B.o.B. Believes The Earth Is Flat, The Internet Erupts With Science

The Atlanta rapper shares a scientific theory that has everyone talking.

Above underground luxury and beyond the strange clouds, the adventures of Bobby Ray makes a stop in geography. Call it ‘being in his psychedelic thoughts,’ but over the last 24 hours, B.o.B. has been trying to convince his Twitter followers that the Earth is, um, flat.


Following the math and science conducted centuries ago, the “Airplanes” rapper dug up the age-old thesis to share his own thoughts via a flurry of memes and tweets. “Don’t believe what I say, research what I say,” he wrote, before later adding, “You can regurgitate force fed information all day… still doesn’t change physics.”

As evidenced by the string of “flat earth” messages above, B.o.B.’s views left many on social media either puzzled or fueled up for a rebuttal. Among those who challenged Bobby Ray's thoughts was America’s favorite astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Considering Tyson's response, will this be the last of Bobby Ray’s geographical stream of consciousness? Can we still pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars? And what does this mean for the strange clouds? So many questions to be answered in the next episode of the Adventures of Bobby Ray.
