Dr. Phil Had an Important Question

Yesterday on Twitter, Dr. Phil asked an important question to all his followers. He wanted to know if it was OK to have sex with a drunk chick (#teenaccused). He must have been looking for a 60%+ approval rating before proceeding. Naturally, the pitchforks came out. Sooner rather than later, he deleted the tweet and issued a statement to Deadline explaining this was meant to start a discussion.

This Tweet was intended to evoke discussion leading into a very serious show topic based upon a recent news story, hence the #teensaccused label. It was a poll question, not a statement or a joke.  As he has maintained over many years, Dr. Phil believes that the position of those incapacitated in any fashion; be it drugs, alcohol, age or mental illness can not and do not have the capacity to give their consent to anything, especially sex, which could have life changing repercussions. This was a research post in preparation for a show, not a personal post and Dr. Phil deleted it the second he saw it. It was clearly ill-advised. We sincerely apologize that it suggested anything other than what was intended, data gathering.  As you can imagine, Dr. Phil is very upset that this happened.

To be fair, there’s a very gray area in this whole debate. That being the point where she’s too drunk to make decisions but not drunk enough to forget everything the next day. Right, bro?! High five! *Chugs some Natty Ice*
