Robin Thicke's Twitter Q&A Quickly Turns Against Him

#AskThicke doesn't go the way the singer wanted...
Maybe Robin Thicke should have asked Dixie Carter about the wisdom of doing Twitter Q&As when you're currently on the downside of people's appreciation curves. The R&B singer didn't though, and held a Q&A on Twitter under the #AskThicke hashtag to promote his new album Paula that rather predictably turned into a podium for people to unload on him over "Blurred Lines," his new album and his separation from Paula Patton, for whom the album is named after.
Here is a selection of Tweets sent under the hashtag. To Thicke's credit, when someone noted that it the response was "brutal" Thicke replied "I'm a big boy, I can handle it."
#AskThicke are you incapable of making songs that don't glamourise rape, objectification and sexual abuse or baby is it in your nature?
