He’s as much a medical doctor as Dr. Who and Dr. Demento.

Now Dr. Phil has incurred the wrath of the Internet after a tweet posted on his verified Twitter account asked if it’s OK to have sex with a drunk girl.

It was quickly deleted.

CNN was unable to reach the Dr. Phil show late Tuesday night, but in a response to a question posed by our partner Buzzfeed, the show said: “This tweet was intended to evoke discussion leading into a very serious show topic. It was not intended to be taken lightly. It’s based upon a recent news story, hence the #teensaccused label.”

But the damage was done.

It started with this Tweet on Dr. Phil’s verified Twitter account. Though it was posted and quickly deleted Tuesday, the responses — and the backlash — are far from over.
