Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse says he’s baffled by Demi Lovato’s stance on the term aliens. They feel the term is derogatory and prefer the term, “ET.”

deGrasse says since humans haven’t had any interactions with aliens how do we know what they feel and do they even feel anything?

Secondly, do we know that aliens would be offended by the term? Demi seems to think so as they made the statement during their interview discussing their new Paramount show, “Unidentified.”

“I think that we have to stop calling them aliens because aliens is a derogatory term for anything,” says Demi. The pop star recently came out as non-binary and uses the pronouns they and them.

Do you think aliens is a derogatory term? What would you call beings from another planet?
