“Don’t believe what I say, research what I say. I’m going up against the greatest liars in history… you’ve been tremendously deceived.” – B.o.B.
“Spherical” Earth believers have been called crazy or accused with heresy in ancient times, but developments in technology and discoveries in science had proven them correct. Since then, it was taught to all of us in school, but all of the proofs have not halted conspiracy theorists from insisting that the Earth is flat. And one of them is famous rapper B.O.B.
American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer from Decatur, Georgia Bobby Ray Simmons Jr. known professionally as B.o.B, is one of those flat-earth believers, and is bent on raising funds to launch his own satellite and prove his claim.
In the hopes of gaining moral and financial support from his fellow “flat-Earthers”, B.o.B. set up a GoFundMe page called “Show BoB the Curve”.
The singer who brought us the hits “Airplanes” and “Nothin’ on You” has long been vocal about his disbelief of the Earth’s circular shape; often taking to Social Media to express his opinions.

His conspiracy-laden tweets had caught the attention of celebrity astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, whom the rapper engaged in an online feud in the past.
As of posting, B.O.B’s campaign has raised $646 donated by 28 people since it was created on September 21. His goal is $200,000.
