On Tuesday, Dr. Phil sent out a tweet asking, "If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teensaccused"

According to MSN Now, Twitter users quickly began making accusations that Dr. Phil's tweet was excusing rape.

One user reponded, "The answer is No, Never you jackass. And then you kick whoever asked you in the throat." Another tweeted, "Is @drphil a moron or an a**hole? So hard to decide."

The tweet was later deleted.
