Dr. Phil stirs up a Twitter storm by asking if it's OK to have sex with a drunk girl

This is why old people need to be trained on how to use social media.

Yesterday, Phil McGraw tweeted out the since-deleted message, “If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil #teensaccused.”

Yikes. In the best possible light, McGraw was likely trying to begin a discussion presumably for fodder on his show about consent.
