Steak-Umm Reignites Beef With Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Puns Ensue

It seems that Steak-Umm woke up today and chose violence. And while it isn't the first time (their Twitter is pretty legendary), this mini-vendetta against Neil Degrasse-Tyson has been too funny to ignore. On Sunday, Degrasse-Tyson tweeted that "The good thing about Science is that it's true, whether or not you believe in it." The sentiment, which is actually pretty dull, caught the attention of Steak-Umm's social media manager, Nathan Allenbach - who turned the platitude into an opportunity to ruffle some internet feathers. While at first Steak-Umm simply replied "log off bro," they later contextualized their stance, explaining that "science itself isn't "true" it's a constantly refining process used to uncover truths based in material reality and that process is still full of misteaks. neil just posts ridiculous sound bites like this for clout and he has no respect for epistemology." 

Where the initial sass-filled tweets are fiery and entertaining, the responses are taking things up a notch. It seems that Twitter users are eager to one-up each other with beef-related puns, desperate for Senpai (Steak-Umm) to notice them. And guess what? Many of them succeeded. While some people have jokingly suggested that the account take on Stephen Hawking (RIP), we really would love to see them go after some more public figures. While we never expected to support a brand's social account, let alone one that shills processed meat, we've really been enjoying Steak-Umm's social media development and can't wait to what kind of mischief they cause in the coming months.

Steak-Umm Serves Up A Surprisingly Insightful Twitter Thread About These Difficult Times

Welcome to late-stage capitalism. Brands are becoming self-aware. Their attention helps our egos on Twitter and beyond. We're used to this now. But somehow, the @Steak-umm account has managed to pleasantly surprise us with a Twitter thread that is actually incredibly helpful in these incredibly confusing and stressful times. 

The frozen thin-sliced steak company took to Twitter on Monday, cautioning the world against coronavirus misinformation. 

"friendly reminder in times of uncertainty and misinformation: anecdotes are not data. (good) data is carefully measured and collected information based on a range of subject-dependent factors, including, but not limited to, controlled variables, meta-analysis, and randomization. outliers attempting to counter global consensus around this pandemic with amateur reporting or unverified sourcing are not collecting data. breaking news stories that only relay initial findings of an event are not collecting data. we have to be careful in our media consumption"

The thread doesn't end there. And it warns passionately against allowing our minds to absorb the constant and often unreliable narrative of fear that we're being fed. It promotes science. While the idea of a frozen steak brand becoming a sort of misinformation watchdog may seem absurd, take a look around you. The world is a freaky place. Sanity, even from a meat-interested social media manager, is incredibly valuable.
