NEW YORK —
Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will be investigated by Fox and National Geographic Networks right after allegations of sexual misconduct were leveled versus him.
Patheos.com posted accounts Thursday from two girls who say that Tyson behaved in a sexually inappropriate fashion with them. Tyson was host of “Cosmos” on Fox in 2014 and a new edition of the collection was to air on Nationwide Geographic up coming yr.
Tyson has not commented publicly and an email request for comment to his consultant was not immediately returned.
In a assertion the producers of “Cosmos” mentioned: “The credo at the heart of ‘Cosmos’ is to adhere to the proof wherever it potential customers. The producers of ‘Cosmos’ can do no a lot less in this circumstance.”
They mentioned they will conduct a extensive investigation. Meanwhile Fox and Countrywide Geographic stated Friday evening that they only recently discovered of the allegations and were examining the allegations.
Besides various Tv set appearances, Tyson is also the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of All-natural History in New York City.
