Celebrities and public figures often use Twitter to “feel closer” to their fans and the general public alike, but sometimes the freedom of the popular micro-blogging network results can backfire in a number of (usually hilarious) ways.

On Monday (Jun 30), VH1 asked Twitter to submit their “burning questions” to Robin Thicke for a Q&A session using the hashtag #AskThicke.

Normally, this would be a good idea, considering Thicke’s album was coming out the next day, and these days, artists need all the promotion they can get. But VH1 and Thicke’s team soon realized how bad their idea actually was.

As it turns out, Twitter did, in fact, have several burning questions for Mr. Thicke: questions about consenting to sex, his rapey lyrics, his failed marriage with his estranged wife Paula Patton, the fact that he’s begging/stalking the hell out of her, why he chose to wear a Beetlejuice outfit the VMAs last year, etc…

Here are some of the highlights:
