Neil deGrasse Tyson has responded to the three sexual misconduct accusations against him, denying each one in a lengthy Facebook post.

The astrophysicist and “Cosmos” host also said that Fox and Nat Geo’s investigation into the matter is a “welcome” one.

“Accusations can damage a reputation and a marriage. Sometimes irreversibly.

He also posed this question: “I’m the accused, so why believe anything I say? Why believe me at all?”
