These celebrities who are flat Earthers will not be convinced that they are standing on a globe. Who will you choose to believe: Tila Tequila or astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson? Check out the list and decide for yourself.
Following a long tradition of NBA players who apparently believe the Earth is really flat, Shaquille O'Neal said on his podcast that indeed the Earth is flat.
"It's true," he said on Big Podcast with Shaq. "The Earth is flat."
His reasoning? He's driven from Florida to California and said the whole ride was clearly flat to him. This comes just weeks after other NBA players - including Kyrie Irving and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green - said they, too, believe the world is flat. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver took the opportunity at his state-of-the-league address to say the Earth is round, but this only bolstered current and former NBA players to reinforce their beliefs.

For someone whose job it is to touch spherical objects, you'd think NBA superstar Kyrie Irving would know a thing or two about things that are round. But apparently he doesn't. On a podcast hosted by his teammates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson, Irving revealed that he believes the Earth is flat.
"This is not even a conspiracy theory," Irving told them. "The Earth is flat."
Irving believes the government is lying to us about the shape of Earth, and then explained semi-incoherently to his teammates about the rotation of the sun and planets. Right.

In 2016, rapper B.o.B claimed the Earth was flat. His reasoning? "No matter how high in elevation you are... the horizon is always eye level ... sorry cadets... I didn't wanna believe it either." Eventually, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joined the conversation to shut him down with actual science. But B.o.B persisted, claiming indoctrination to a "heliocentric belief system" has turned us all into sheep.

Are we all just sheep who've been tricked by actual pictures of outer space? George Bernard Shaw thought so. He said, "We are more gullible and superstitious today than we were in the Middle Ages, and an example of modern credulity is the widespread belief that the Earth is round. The average man can advance not a single reason for thinking that the Earth is round. He merely swallows this theory because there is something about it that appeals to the twentieth century mentality."
