How the Internet Trolled Robin Thicke in the Most Epic Way
All’s not well in the Robin Thicke camp. The singer is set to take part in a live Twitter Q&A Tuesday afternoon and everything is already becoming, well, what rhymes with disaster?
When VH1 sent out a tweet to gather questions from fans, users responded by flooding the Twitterverse with hilarious-but-poignant queries about Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” perpetuating rape culture, whether or not he’s using his latest album to publicly guilt Paula Patton into taking him back, and his general sleazy image.
All in all, the #AskThicke hashtag is now one of the most epic things to have happened since that time the internet shipped Pitbull off to Alaska in an attempt to exile him.
Here are just some of the best entries. Come on, don’t act like you don’t want to see Thicke attempt to answer some of these.
