Watch out Guys, we're dealing with a badass over here


Neil deGrasse Tyson Reaction is a rage comic character and reaction face of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson making a defensive gesture. The character image is sometimes associated with the catchphrase "Watch out guys, we're dealing with a badass over here" that is used to mock arrogant and boastful statements made by Internet users.


The outline drawing was based on a still image from an interview with Tyson by the online knowledge forum Big Think[4] on living and longevity (shown below), which was uploaded to YouTube on June 3rd, 2011. The non-plussed reaction occurred when Tyson explained how Sir Isaac Newton invented calculus before his 26th birthday.

An animated GIF of the reaction was submitted to the marijuana enthusiast r/trees[5] subreddit in a post titled "when asked if i smoke weed often" on August 25th, 2011 (shown below, left). User Hippopoptimus_Prime replied to the thread with a rage comic version of the face (shown below, right).


Most examples of Neil deGrasse reaction comics are intended to poke fun at self-gratuitous comments, status updates or photos found on social networking sites. On October 23rd, 2011, Redditor Onlyhereforthelaughs submitted a rage comic featuring the Tyson rage face to the /r/f7u12 subreddit.[6] On October 25th, Redditor GiggleAtTheGoatse uploaded a screen capture of a Facebook status update that read "Smokin Weed" accompanied by the Tyson rage face and the caption "Watch out guys, we're dealing with a badass over here." An updated rage face with the "Watch out, we got a badass over here" caption was uploaded by Redditor fairlydeadfellow[3] on November 7th.
