FURRY FURY! Homer Hickam deletes his Twitter account after uproar over fired NASA intern

Author and engineer Homer Hickam, who sits on NASA’s National Space Council, got into a spat with a Twitter user after she used foul language to announce her internship with NASA on Twitter.


@NaomiH_official wrote, “EVERYONE SHUT THE F*CK UP I GOT ACCEPTED FOR A NASA INTERNSHIP.” To which Hickam simply replied, “Language.”

That’s when “Naomi” responded with, “Suck my dick and balls I’m working at NASA.”

Hickam, in a now deleted exchange wrote, “And I am on the National Space Council that oversees NASA”:

Whoops. NASA did pull her internship over the exchange, but Hickam — being a class act — explained in a blog post that he was only looking out for the woman and was warning her about using foul language and tagging NASA in a tweet. The two have reportedly been in touch and Hickam was trying to get her internship back at NASA or an even a better one someplace else:

But then things got weird. Apparently Naomi is a “Furry” — people who dress up in animal costumes — and members of the Furry community got furious at Hickam, which caused him to delete his Twitter and the blog post he wrote where he explained how he was trying to help Naomi:

And this is why we can’t have nice things:
