Don’t worry y’all, Neil deGrasse Tyson in all of his scientific wisdom has figured out why it was ok for NFL players to kneel during the National Anthem yesterday.

Whoa, a fictional show proves it.

Because SCIENCE.

EL OH EL.

Wait, you mean people aren’t revered for kneeling in a fictional universe?

That’s shocking.

Serfdom, yup.

That too.

Apparently Neil and his ilk are AOK with being ruled over.

What he said.

Neil really thought this was a good way to prove that kneeling wasn’t a disrespectful, cowardly act.

That’s adorbs.

It’s worth a Google.

We’re not sure he does know it’s fiction.

Harry Potter said they needed to stand their asses up.

Check please.
