Neil DeGrasse Tyson Kind Of Spoiled The Ending Of ‘The Martian’ For Everyone On Twitter

GOOD ONE, DAD.

Warning: this article contains spoilers, obviously.

Celebrity astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and the internet’s dad Neil DeGrasse Tyson has been all over new sci-fi blockbuster film The Martian for the past few days. Given he featured in a promotional video leading up to its release, and has obvious professional interests that align with key themes of the film, it’s not that surprising.

Displaying his usual flair for science comedy, which is probably a thing, Tyson took time out from flirting with international fugitive Edward Snowden to tweet a bunch of his thoughts on the movie, which stars Matt Damon as a very thirsty astronaut stranded on a planet we all now know is covered in flowing water (how embarrassment).

His sassy comparisons of the plot’s fictional scenarios to real life ones were initially well-received:

And his mini Martian reviews/open love letters to logical thinking gave his fans something to rally behind.

But then the smattering of witty and relatively harmless tweets began to give way to something far more sinister: ruining the god damn movie for everybody.

 (WARNING: YEP, THIS IS THE PART WHERE WE SHOW YOU THE SPOILERS.)

Understandably, people were pissed.

Neil, mate, you knew the rules. If you play with spoilers, you will get burned – by a hundred thousand angry Twitter users for all of eternity.

P.S — we obviously still love you though, you adorable drongo.
