Hoyle was the second person I thought of. The first, though, was Mordehai Milgrom, who's long been pushing the hypothesis that there is no dark matter, and that instead gravity itself is modified in some way. The problem is that his Modified Newtonian Gravity can't fit all of the many different dark matter observations at once, it's very difficult to make it even self-consistent, and nobody has ever even proposed a relativistic form of the model. It may be that he's stumbled upon some interesting emergent phenomenon in dark matter distributions in galaxies, but it's obscured behind his mountains of nonsense.
