Neil deGrasse Tyson accused of sexual misconduct by three women

Neil deGrasse Tyson accused of sexual misconduct by three women

First, Dr. Katelyn N. Allers, a colleague of Tyson's detailed an encounter in 2009 at an after-party following an American Astronomical Society meet up.

2018: Ashley Watson says she quit her job as his assistant this summer after he invited her for wine and cheese and attempted to coerce her into sex.

Watson says Tyson asked her if she needed any releases, and she responded with a story about sexual harassment she endured in the past.

Faced with three accusations that span three decades and range from "creepy behavior" to rape, Neil deGrasse Tyson offered up a lengthy defense via Facebook post on Saturday, saying "clearly I can not continue to stay silent".

Saturday night, Tyson posted a lengthy response to the allegations on Facebook.

While their interaction may have not been an assault, Allers said it was a clear sign that Tyson was capable of "creepy behavior", the website reported.

Tyson wrote in his Facebook post that he never touched Watson aside from the special handshake he had learned from a Native American elder on reservation land.

"We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson", Fox Broadcasting and National Geographic said.

I know my upbringing wasn't ideal . "I made a bad choice and I'm not going to let this bring me down". He said he wants to get treatment for it, but also says he has not tried to seek treatment.

The next night, however, in the auto, she says that Tyson told her that she was too "distracting" to work as a producer.

"But clearly I can not continue to stay silent", he wrote.

Patheos.com recently published accounts from two women who say that Tyson behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner toward them. The hug comment made her particularly uncomfortable.

She recalled blacking out after Tyson gave her a drink and waking up naked on his bed. "When he saw that I had woken up, he got on top of me and mounted me, and I passed out again", Amet recalled. He added that they ran into each other a few years later when she was pregnant.

For me, what was most significant, was that in this new life, long after dropping out of astrophysics graduate school, she was posting videos of colored tuning forks endowed with vibrational therapeutic energy that she channels from the orbiting planets.

The producers behind Cosmos, as well as Fox Broadcasting Company and National Geographic, are now investigating sexual misconduct claims against Neil deGrasse Tyson, the astrophysicist and author who hosts the science series. Tyson was host of "Cosmos" on Fox in 2014 and a new edition of the series was to air on National Geographic next year.

Tyson said he fully supports the investigation.
