Robin Thicke Is Getting Annihilated In A Live Twitter Q&A Right Now
#askthicke might just be the worst PR decision ever made.
Let it be known: the people of Great Britain have today committed a glorious and noble act. Working as one heart, mind and soul, these hardworking folk have taken it upon themselves to desecrate, steamroll and otherwise entirely obliterate the poisonous ego of everyone’s favourite lecherous middle-aged pervert, Robin Thicke, under a colossal, thunderous tidal wave of pure, unbridled, righteous hatred.

In the song “I know you want it” is “it” a lecherous disgusting string bean of a man or a job with equal pay? #AskThicke

Exactly whose idea it was to expose one of the world’s most reviled creatures to the concentrated bile of hundreds of thousands of vengeful Britons remains to be seen, but what is already evident is that this is the single worst PR move anyone has ever made.
Should we look at some more?
I think we should look at some more.
Will you melt away, wicked witch of the west style, if we throw a bucket of menstrual cycles & tampons over you? #AskThicke

It took a single hour for #AskThicke to start trending like hell in the UK, because not a single person in the country would’ve passed up the opportunity to call Robin Thicke an unreconstructed shitheap. They probably suspended Cabinet meetings.

On a scale of R. Kelly to Phil Spector, how do you intend to “Get Her Back?” #AskThicke

#AskThicke I feel a bit mean using this hastag to bash you, but I know you want it…

(I lied. It was three more.)
We salute you, good people of the United Kingdom. You have done their country proud this day.
