Steak-umm Hits Deep Thinker Neil deGrasse Tyson With A Meaty Diatribe

Videos by OutKick

Folks, the last thing you want to do is get into a deep thinking, science-based war of words with the Steak-umm brand Twitter account as big thinker Neil deGrasse Tyson has done this week. Steak-umm blew its meaty top Monday night over a NGT tweet stating “the good thing about science is that it’s true, whether or not you believe in it.”

BOOM…an instant Twitter beef. My brain isn’t big enough to know what’s really going on here, but I can read tweet body language and Steak-umm clearly has a bone to pick with a guy who has one of the nerdiest resumes in scientific history. NGT doesn’t even bother listing his accolades in his Twitter bio. “Astrophysicist” is all he has to list and people go, “Woah, he’s not to be f–ked with.”

Well, Steak-umm, which is best known as the DIY meat of the homemade cheesesteak industry, clearly doesn’t mind an intellectual battle with Mr. Astrophysicist. Don’t forget that Steak-umm was founded by a food technologist who is also credited with inventing popcorn chicken. You’ve met your match, deGrasse Tyson!

So far, Neil has yet to directly engage with the shaved meat account. This isn’t the first time Steak-umm has been triggered by NGT. It looks like this meat vs. Mr. Astrophysicist battle has been going on since way back in 2017.

Never underestimate that shaved beef you’re crushing at 2 a.m. after closing down a bar.
