Dr. Phil caused quite a stir online this week after tweeting a question that inferred rape before quickly deleting it.
"If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teenaccused," was written on the verified Dr. Phil account on Twitter Tuesday evening, causing outrage from followers around the world.
Dr. Phil is known for posting upcoming show topics and themes on his Twitter account, but this tweet sent readers into such a fury that a Change.org petition was started. The petition calls on Dr. Phil to focus an upcoming episode on "survivors' voices and educates the public about the true definition of rape and sexual assault, as well as how to prevent it."
