What Does Neil deGrasse Tyson Think About Demi Lovato Wanting Us to Stop Calling Aliens, “Aliens” Because it’s a Hurtful Term?

Demi Lovato recently advised their fans not
to use the phrase “aliens” while discussing extraterrestrials since they
believe it is insulting. Neil deGrasse Tyson, on the other hand, strongly
disagrees.

Recently Demi Lovato told E! News, after
denying having an unreleased song called ‘Aliens’: ‘I think that we have to
stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything.
That’s why I like to call them E.T.s!’

The singer made the remark while promoting
her new documentary Unidentified, in which they investigate the truth
of alleged UFO sightings. The program follows Lovato, best friend Matthew
Scott Montgomery, and sister Dallas as they try to contact other worlds.

Lovato said: “I wanted to film everything
that goes down when I go and search for these UFOs so that my fans can come
along for the ride. I think that [ETs] are looking for nothing but peaceful
encounters and interactions because like I said, if they wanted us gone, we
would have been gone a long time ago.”

Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson replied to Demi
Lovato’s accusation that the term “aliens” is “derogatory” by reminding the
singer that aliens “have no feelings.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson was recently asked about
this in an interview with TMZ, and though he understood they were trying to be
nice, he thinks there is no need to change that term when it comes to beings
from other planets: ‘When I refer to aliens — just to be specific — I always
say ‘space aliens’. And then, what we used to call aliens on Earth —
undocumented immigrants, that’s what the new term is for them, and I’m all in
on that. So what that means is — if we all do that — the only invocation of the
word ‘alien’ is for creatures from outer space that want to kill us all.’

He also noted that assuming extraterrestrial
species can grasp the term “alien” is dubious because they could not understand
any of Earth’s languages in the first place. “Why should I even believe they
know English?” he continued. “I don’t get it.”

What do you think about the term?
