I assumed this was clickbait, but the person this article is talking about is Nima Arkani-Hamed. To give the article some context he is one of the biggest names in particle physics and a household name of sorts in US science. Put another way often times it seems these things are either nobodies trying to make a name for themselves through politics, or somebody trying to become somebody by tearing other people down. That is definitely not the case here. The title's also somewhat misleading. He's American - born in Texas where his father (both parents Iranian) was working on the Apollo project.
