B.o.B Starts GoFundMe to Prove the Earth Is Flat

Written by 

He may be known as a popular rapper but B.o.B, a.k.a. Bobby Ray Simmons Jr., is making news these days for something other than his number one hits. B.o.B has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for weather balloons and satellites to send into space. The purpose? To prove the Earth is flat, once and for all.

The rapper has become well known in recent years for his unconventional views on things. He is a proud member of the Flat Earth Society, which supports the idea that the Earth is not round. His Twitter followers get a regular dose of his thoughts on the matter, as well as his support of theories like 9/11 conspiracies and the dangers of vaccines. He has also posted mysterious tweets like this one, which implied that celebrities might be clones since they “can’t gain weight, and they can’t grow hair.”

B.o.B is so passionate about his flat-Earth theory, he once engaged in a Twitter battle with physicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The battle inspired his song Flatline, which sampled portions of Tyson’s speech where he referred to the Earth as an “oblate spheroid.”

B.o.B may have a fan base for his songs, but his theories aren’t gaining quite as much traction. He’s still at the low end of his one-million-dollar goal, including the $1,000 he pitched in to kick off the campaign.
