36Richard Dawkins: "I'm a feminist, but this Sargon of Akkad fellow has made an interesting youtube video about how Feminism and Islamism are the same thing". UPDATE: He's now deleted the tweet FURTHER UPDATE: Dawkins has been uninvited from the NECSS 2016 conference due to a majority vote from the panel. To his credit, the tweet was removed prior to the decision being released. FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE: The NECSS panel has openly and privately apologized to Dawkins for acting unilaterally rather than first expressing their concerns, and he has been re-invited to NECSS to discuss both his prior planned talk, as well as being part of a panel discussion about diversity and free speech within the skeptical community. Unfortunately, this was just prior to his stroke, and cancellation of other talks due to his health.

(With a casual side of Holocaust denial!) Tyson responded with a (fanmade) diss track of his own.

44Milo Yiannopoulos loses his little blue "verified" checkmark on Twitter, for multiple TOS violations. Breitbart goes goddamn nuts.
