Eat This: Scientist faces backlash after tweeting image of a chorizo slice was a distant star.

.



A French scientist says he's sorry for tweeting out a picture of a slice of chorizo and claiming it was an image taken by the James Webb Space Telescope of a distant star, CNN reports.

Physicist and director at France's Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, Étienne Klein, shared the image to his Twitter account, with the caption, "Picture of Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the Sun, located 4.2 light years away from us. It was taken by the James Webb Space Telescope. This level of detail... A new world is unveiled everyday."

The post immediately went viral, getting over 14,000 likes and retweets.
