Robin Thicke's #AskThicke Hashtag Goes Hilariously, Gloriously Wrong

Gaston of the 21st Century Robin Thicke has really stepped into it, Twitter-wise.


Despite the fact that pretty much everyone has been sick of Thicke's shit for a very long time now, someone, somewhere has decided that this is an opportune moment to do a Twitter Q&A with Robin Thicke and other humans. So far, it hasn't gone very well.

Yesterday, Vh1 tweeted, "Have a burning question for @robinthicke? Submit your ?s for tomorrow's Twitter Q+A using #AskThicke!" Well, as it turns out, Twitter does have several burning questions for Robin Thicke: questions about his rapey lyrics, about his insanely objectifying "Blurred Lines" music video, about his misguided and creepy campaign to "win" Paula Patton back, about why he chose to wear a Beetlejuice outfit to the VMAs...

Here are some highlights:
