    Default Robin Thicke's #AskThicke Twitter Q&A Backfires

    #AskThicke backfires big time on Robin Thicke

    A sample of the #AskThicke Q&A from Twitter.

    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    • Robin Thicke and the team at VH1 learn a lesson in social media the hard way
    • Users flood Twitter with criticisms of Thicke, his music, and his treatment of women
    • "Robin could use a good #AskThicke in," tweets @Doolies67


    (CNN) -- As wise people say: Don't ask questions if you don't want to know the answer.

    Robin Thicke and the team at VH1 learned that lesson the hard way Tuesday when the hashtag #AskThicke, created for a Twitter Q&A session with the singer, backfired in a big way.

    Users flooded the micro blogging site with biting criticisms of Thicke, his music, and his treatment of women, particularly his wife.

    The couple, married since 2005, decided to separate in February, and since then singer has been trying to win her back with his performances.

    "Do you think Tim Howard can save your marriage?" tweeted @PlaidAndDots, referring to the goalie for the U.S. team at the World Cup.

    "Y'all knew that #AskThicke was going 2 be a disaster. Twitter has no chill and once again PR people are getting celebrities clowned," tweeted @LisaBolekaja.

    The Q&A went forward, despite the backlash, with Thicke seeming to address the controversy at one point.

    "I'm a big boy. I can handle it," he tweeted during the session with VH1.

    A representative for the "Blurred Lines" singer declined to comment Tuesday. CNN reached out to VH1 but did not immediately hear back.
    Meanwhile, the hate fest continued online.

    "On a scale of 1 - Robin Thicke, how creepy is your next single going to be?" tweeted @emmaensign. "Any general tips for women trying to avoid men like you?"

    "Robin could use a good #AskThicke in," tweeted @Doolies67.

    CNN's Topher Gauk-Roger contributed to this report.

    I wish I'd known about this. I would have asked how he felt when he realised that even Miley's raw chicken act couldn't distract from his creepiness.

    It's been said that the song sort of alludes to date rape, Beeyotch.

    Robin Thicke's creepy new video isn't romantic—it's harassment: http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/robi...eo-harassment/

    He's been trying to get public sympathy to manipulate Paula into getting back with him. The album is called 'Paula'. Here's the creepy song. It seems to show their text message exchanges.

    And the unrated version of that video is just obnoxious, and he's obnoxious it in.
    I mean hey, I'm all for looking nice racks But after the first minute of the video, I thought "Ok, I get it - boobs, and....?"

    That song and video are bad. Is that suppose to make the public feel sorry for him. Here's an idea: Don't Cheat! Novel, I know.

    So he thinks airing personal text messages in a music video will get her back? Or maybe he doesn't want her back, he just wants public sympathy. He's just so unattractive to me. His doughy face is just repulsive.
