Scientist Apologizes For Trolling Twitter With Photo Of Sausage

A French scientist is doing some damage control after sending Twitter into a frenzy with a picture of what he claimed to be a distant star but was actually just a piece of sausage.

Etienne Klein tweeted an image or what appeared to be a telescopic photograph of a red-tinged circle on July 31, claiming it was a photo taken by the James Webb Space Telescope of the star Proxima Centauri, which is the closest star to the sun.

“Photo of Proxima Centauri, the closest star to the Sun, located 4.2 light years from us. She was taken by the JWST,” the translated tweet read. “This level of detail,” he continued. “A new world is revealed day after day.”
