Dr. Phil removes sexual assault tweet after public outcry

Dr. Phil felt the wrath of the Twittersphere Tuesday after his official Twitter account posted a question about the appropriateness of having sex with a drunk girl.

The tweet, which read, "If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teensaccused" was eventually deleted, but not before Twitter users mocked and criticized the post.

.@DrPhil - here's a hint; if you wouldn't want it done to yourself, your child, or your loved ones, IT IS NOT OKAY. Also, you're a moron.
