Reportedly Dr. Phil, the talk show host doctor tweeted on Tuesday afternoon a question that created much controversy. Dr. Phil asked if it was ok to have sex with a drunk girl and immediately caused many tweeters to criticize his question. The tweet has since been deleted but a rep for Dr. Phil made this statement.
“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.”
