    Dr Phil and the Drunk Girl Sex Tweet

    (CNN) -- Dr. Phil McGraw has incurred the wrath of the Internet after a tweet posted on his verified Twitter account asked if it's OK to have sex with a drunk girl.


    The outrage was swift:
    From @spsook: If a doctor doesn't understand consent, has he abdicated his medical authority? reply y/n to @DrPhil #teensaccused


    I am not a fan at all. If you take the time to check the guy out, you will see that imo Oprah owes all of us a heartfelt apology for "discovering" him.

    Then his staff (or he himself) deletes the tweet...all the while claiming it was an attempt to provoke discussion.

    Yeah right.

    In what context was it asked? Was it asked to about a certain show or case?

    I'm not a huge fan of his either, but I'd like to see the exact tweet, and I didn't see that in the article.

    As far as PR response.....people have been ruined for less over peoples fake outrage.

    Who knows....... :shrug:

    Clearly it was written (and poorly worded..) as a kind of poll.

    Outrage over it is, therefore, kind of stupid.

    I didn't understand the outrage until I saw that it's in reference to teens accused of rape.

    I highly doubt Dr. Phil wrote that tweet himself but he's still going to suffer the fallout.

    exactly-what kind of polling about that subject is appropriate? It is an illegal act. Sure, I bet an intern's head is going to roll, but it might provide some valuable insight into the machine that is Dr Phil.

    Regardless, I am encouraged by the wrath because to me it seems like progress.

    IDK, I was not really a fan, but I am enjoying his Life Code book. I think he's right on the mark with it...there are a lot of selfish, self-absorbed, me-at-any-cost people out there. In the book, he tells you how to spot them, and how to avoid them, or how to deal with them, if you must.

    As for his tweet...he said he intended it to generate discussion. I guess it's done that.

    I muist be dense...but I don't understand the outrage. It is not like Dr Phil was condoning having sex with a drunk teen. And it is highly unlikely that he was even the one that worded the text. Seems kind of unfair to make it out like he was implying anything out of that poorly worded tweet, imo.
