One Million Brit Kids Think Pro Green Is A Real Professor
According to new research, it has been found that an estimated one million children aged between 5-16 in Britain believe that UK rapper Professor Green is a real scientist. In addition to this, approximately six percent of children included in the survey believed that X Factor judge Tulisa invented the drug Penicillin…
In the study conducted by Haier Home Appliances UK, the findings revealed the full effects of pop-culture on the nation’s youth. According to MTV UK, the study saw children being asked various questions, which yielded some hilarious responses; including 35% of those surveyed believing London mayor Boris Johnson discovered gravity.
Discussing the results, a spokesman for Haier Home Appliances UK stated: "It is eye-opening to discover that children of today are more aware of popular figures like Mark Zuckerberg than men and women who have made iconic discoveries and inventions that have revolutionised the modern world.
"At Haier, we put science at the very heart of everything we do, and we passionately believe the future of innovation lies in the scientific interest and imagination of the next generation."
In light of the revelation, Pro took to his Twitter account, sharing: “One million school children think I'm a real professor? One rapper thinks there are probably better questions to be asking school children."
