Last week, Steph Curry jumped on The Ringer's "Winging It" podcast and said that he didn't believe that the moon landing was real - something that was picked up and went viral from 0 to 100 real quick.

Curry quickly rescinded his comments and said that he was joking on the podcast and apologized for his comments and agreed to tour one of NASA's lunar labs to learn more about the explorations.

Kelly admitted that he had a similar fallout on social media when he called Winston Churchill one of the greatest leaders of all time not understanding how Churchill felt about race relations and colonialism.
