Dr. Phil could probably use a Twitter tutorial.
The celebrity doc sparked a social media controversy when he tweeted Tuesday afternoon: “If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her?”
The overwhelming Twitter response was (obviously) “No!” And why the heck is he asking, anyway?
Fox News’ “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld” commentator Andy Levy wrote: “Are you ‘asking for a friend’?”
Other users demanded the talk show host delete the offensive message.
So he did.
Dr. Phil then quickly moved on to tweeting about missing children and “abuse by a stepparent.”
