I’ve been an avid fan of rage comics since my teenage years and am pleased that this Neil deGrasse Tyson reaction face is now joining the pantheon of mythic rage comic characters such as Trollface, Me Gusta and Forever Alone. But what makes the Neil deGrasse Tyson reaction doubly special is the fact that it draws its likeness from the famous American astrophysicist himself.

Parodying an interview video Neil deGrasse Tyson gave on the topic of Isaac Newton, the new reaction face features the director of the Hayden Planetarium throwing his hands in the air with an incredulous look. The words "Watch out, we got a badass over here" are typed sarcastically beside the image and the meme is often paired with images of people wholesomely misbehaving for hilarious effect.
