You might think Bill Nye is a delightfully goofy and universally loved explainer of science. You would be wrong. There are some people on Twitter who definitely do not love Bill Nye.

The video above was made to promote a Kickstarter campaign for an untitled documentary on Nye’s life, journey to Science Guy-dom, and passion for science ambassadorship. The campaign is still about $200,000 shy of its $650,000 goal, but you can contribute until August 13 if you are so inclined. We can only hope that it will include more readings of mean tweets.
