Robin Thicke’s Twitter Takeover REALLY Backfired
‘Blurred Lines’ star trolled after #AskThicke goes wrong
Somewhere, at some point, someone decided it would be a good idea for Robin Thicke to host a Twitter Q&A to celebrate the launch of his new album ‘Paula’. That person probably no longer has a job.
VH1 decided to give fans the opportunity to ask Robin Thicke any burning questions they had and used the hashtag #AskThicke to do so. Twitter users have made the hashtag the highest trending tag by inundating it with questions about misogyny, cheating allegations, Blurred Lines and his recent breakup (and consequent public stalking).
Many people have taken #AskThicke as an opportunity to tell him to leave his estranged wife Paula Patton alone, which is probably a slightly useless effort considering the album he is promoting is dedicated to her. Even so, the tweets are very funny. What a fool...

Robin Thicke is getting terrible abuse on the #AskThicke hashtag. Maybe If he'd dressed less provocative & stayed sober it wouldn't happen?— Jim Sheridan (@Jim_Sheridan) July 1, 2014
If you HAD to choose, would you rather be remembered for a rape anthem, the public stalking of Paula or cultural appropriation?#AskThicke— Rachel McKibbens (@RachelMcKibbens) June 30, 2014

#AskThicke Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?— Maria (@MariaJPrice) July 1, 2014
