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.

The Dr. Phil Show issued the following statement before deleting the tweet.
