In case you missed it, Robin Thicke is not a well-liked person. More specific, he has been labeled misogynistic, creepy, out of touch, and just an all around embarrassment to music.
This week has been even less kind to him than usual. Not long after releasing an ill advised musical attempt to win back ex-wife Paula Patton, Thicke agreed to an even more ill-advised Twitter talk back session via VH1. Thicke kicked off the interview session with a confident tweet “I’m a big boy. I can handle it #AskThicke“. Little did he know he had released the army of trolls that is the internet. The Results were disastrous for Thicke and hilarious for everyone else. Here a few of the best entries from the day:
