Investigations began in December 2018 after Katelyn Allers and Ashley Watson came up with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior, including flogging (described as "dreadful" than attacks) and attempts to motivation. It also started a rape allegation from Tchiya Amet in 201
DeGrasse Tyson said he recalled two newly revealed events differently, but acknowledged that he could not make the women. He further opposed rape allegations, saying that Amet did not really remember what had happened and made a "guess" of the mistake. At the same time, he also acknowledges that it contains evidence and encourages the investigation.
