The internet has exploded after Dr. Phil posted a tweet asking his followers whether they believe it is okay to sleep with drunk girls. The post was quickly taken down, but the twitterverse has continued to rage on, some even accusing the lowercase doctor of being a rape apologist.
This comes only hours after Dr. Phil’s arch rival, Dr. Oz, ran all the way from midtown Manhattan to help a woman who was hit by a taxi earlier today.
yes. this. RT @QuadCityPat If @DrPhil is a misogynistic rape apologist, do you tell him to fuck off? Reply yes or no.

@drphil you are a disgusting human being, and sent out one of the most stupidly insensitive tweets I've ever seen.

@DrPhil just basically asked if it is okay to rape someone….

Deleting that tweet will not make up for the complete fucking embarrassment and mockery you make of the mental health profession @DrPhil.

What the serious hell was up with that? Is @drphil seriously thinking there is any answer other than NO?

No, @DrPhil. It is not okay to rape someone no matter WHAT conditions are introduced. #rapeculture

Thankfully the definition of #sexualassault is not subject to @DrPhil and his twitter opinion poll. #rapeculture
