Robin Thicke didn’t exactly receive a warm welcome from Twitter today when he hosted a Q&A with the hashtag #AskThicke. Twitter certainly had a lot of questions for the Blurred Lines singer but, well, let’s just say that the Q&A didn’t go exactly as planned.

Robin Thicke has been trying very hard to improve his image and repair his relationship with Paula Patton. He recently recorded an album of love songs for Patton in an effort to #getherback. But here’s the thing: Most people don’t see the #getherback campaign as a sweet gesture. Instead, it’s viewed as sad, desperate, and a little creepy.

#AskThicke If you sang in a forest and nobody was there to hear it would you still sound like a creepy, rapey, pound-shop Justin Timberlake?

Are you surprised that the #AskThicke hashtag backfired so hilariously on Robin Thicke? Are you a little disappointed that he didn’t answer these questions?
