Oh no! Our favorite pseudo scientist may be in trouble!
While giving a presentation at USC last night, Bill Nye "The Science Guy" collapsed in front of hundreds of people.
One USC senior who attended the lecture said the former TV personality was walking toward the podium when he collasped mid-sentence.
The worst part? Nobody helped him! Another senior went on to say:
"Nobody went to his aid at the very beginning when he first collapsed — that just perplexed me beyond reason. Instead, I saw students texting and updating their Twitter statuses. It was just all a very bizarre evening."
a-holes students in the audience felt it was more important to update their Facebook status than help the ailing man out.
Luckily, Nye popped back up only seconds later and seemed determined to finish his lecture, but as some Twitter accounts add, he went on to faint more than once and slur his speech, eventually being removed from the stage.
Removed?! It sounds like they treated the guy like some kind of infected lab rat!
It was unclear if Bill Nye was treated or required transport from the team of emergency officials who responded to the scene, but we hope he’s okay!
Feel better, Bill! We hope it is nothing serious!
