There were some sexual misconduct allegations a while back. If memory serves, there was an unsubstantiated rape claim from the 80s, and a couple instances of him acting kinda creepy that bordered on sexual harassment (I remember there being something about a handshake with too much eye contact, for instance). He denied the rape thing, while confirming the other behavior but offering explanations that basically amounted to him being a nerd who doesn't know how to interact with normal people. Which, as an astrophysicist, I'd rate those explanations as plausible.
Beyond that, I think his pedantic "actually..." tweets nitpicking every [expletive] thing just wore people out.
