NBA player Steph Curry said he was joking when he said he didn’t believe humans landed on the moon.
The remark was made when the athlete made an appearance on the Monday episode of the “Winging It” podcast, which is hosted by Atlanta Hawks players Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore.
ESPN reported that the Golden State Warriors player was in the middle of a lighthearted discussion with teammate Andre Iguodala, Carter, Bazemore and podcast co-host Annie Finberg when the moon landing came up.
“We ever been to the moon?” Curry asked at the 46:45 mark of the episode. The group replied, “No.”
“They’re going to come get us,” Curry said. “Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies.”
Finberg was skeptical, but the others mentioned part of the theory that says director Stanley Kubrick staged the moon landing footage.
People quickly responded, criticizing Curry for spreading the conspiracy theory, especially when he has young fans.
“Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast,” Curry told ESPN Wednesday. “I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake-moon-landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own.”
CNN reported that NASA responded to Curry’s claim Tuesday.
“There’s lots of evidence NASA landed 12 American astronauts on the Moon from 1969-1972,” NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said in a statement. “We’d love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab at our Johnson Space Center in Houston, perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets.”
Curry told ESPN he’d take NASA up on the offer.
“In terms of the reaction that I've gotten, I am definitely going to take them up on their offer. I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years and hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power,” the father of three said. “For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe.
“I’m going to go to NASA and I’m going to enjoy the experience wholeheartedly.”
President Trump attacked MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Thursday for using a homophobic slur on the air and tweeted that if a conservative person had said it, "that person would be banned permanently from television."
"She will probably be given a pass despite their terrible ratings," Trump said.
"Morning Joe," the show Brzezinski co-hosts with husband Joe Scarborough, regularly has harsh takes on Trump and his administration. Brzezinski was criticizing Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday for comments regarding the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
She said it sounded like Pompeo was carrying water for a "wanna-be dictator," using a cruder term.
Afterward, she apologized via Twitter, saying it was a "SUPER BAD choice of words."
MSNBC had no comment on Trump's tweet.
Brzezinski was not on the air Thursday due to a long-planned family matter, an MSNBC spokesman said. Her Pompeo reference, which had drawn social media criticism, was not mentioned on the air.
They used to wish they were special. Now they're the most artistically significant band of the past two decades.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced seven inductees for its 34th annual ceremony Thursday. Janet Jackson, Radiohead, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, The Cure, Roxy Music and The Zombies are the newest class of inductees.
According to the Hall of Fame website, “inductees are recognized for having contributed over 25 years of musical excellence.”
NPR reported that the inductees were voted upon by over 1,000 past winners, historians and members of the music industry. The seven inductees were chosen from 18 nominees, which were announced in October.
Nicks is already a member as part of Fleetwood Mac, but she’s a first-time nominee as a solo artist. Billboard reported that Def Leppard and Roxy Music are also first-time nominees. Janet Jackson was nominated twice before and The Zombies were nominated three times.
“I have a lot to say about this, but I will save those words for later. For now I will just say, I have been in a band since 1968,” Nicks said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone. “To be recognized for my solo work makes me take a deep breath and smile. It’s a glorious feeling.”
“Now we can stop holding our breath,” Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott told Rolling Stone. “How wonderful to be in the same club as the Rolling Stones and the Beatles and the Who and Queen … It’s a nice badge of honor.”
“Thank you Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” Jackson said in a statement. “I am truly honored and I am happy to be in there with my brothers.”
The New York Times reported Radiohead and The Cure were nominated twice before, but it’s unlikely Radiohead will be at the ceremony. Most of the band expressed no interest in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone.
“It’s probably not at the top of my list of things to do,” drummer Phil Selway said.
“I don’t care,” lead guitarist and keyboardist Jonny Greenwood said. “Maybe it’s a cultural thing that I really don’t understand.”
“I don’t want to be rude, but if you ask me what I’d rather be doing that night, I’d rather be sitting at home in front of the fire or going to a gig,” guitarist Ed O’Brien said. “I realized years ago that I didn’t like award ceremonies.”
Lead singer Thom Yorke echoed O’Brien’s remarks: “It wouldn’t be the first place … don’t ask me things like that. I always put my foot in my mouth.”
Bassist Colin Greenwood was the only member to lean more positively toward an induction. “I’d be grateful if we got in. Look at the other people that have been inducted. I don’t know if everyone else will go, though.”
Collectively, the band issued a broader statement in response to the induction news.
“The members of Radiohead have been surprised to learn of the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2019,” they said in a statement, according to Variety. “The band thanks the Hall of Fame voting body and extends congratulations to this year’s fellow inductees.”
The 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be March 29 at the Barclays Center in New York. An edited special will air in the spring on HBO.
