Twitter users were not pleased with Dr. Phil’s absurd question that he posed in one of his recent tweets. Let’s hope this was for a segment of his show and not some sort of moral dilemma he was in the middle of. Either way, twitter’s reaction made him delete the tweet not long after he posted it.

Dr. Phil is one of the few people that can actually use the line, “I’m not a doctor but I play one on TV,” and well, that’s pretty cool right?

A spokesperson for the show responded to Buzzfeed about the tweet in question: “This tweet was intended to evoke discussion leading into a very serious show topic. It was not intended to be taken lightly,” the spokesperson said. “It’s based upon a recent news story, hence the #teensaccused label.”

Still, did he expect anyone on twitter to tweet back a “yes” to that question? What the hell was he thinking? That he was going to get a couple of “hell yeah!” responses to this stupid question? Whether or not it’s related to a show is not the point. That he even asked the question at all in a public forum should tell you what a nincompoop he is. I guess that’s what happen when people play doctor.
