Someone Asked TLC If They Still Have A "No Scrubs" Policy And Their Response Is Epic

No, I don't want your number / No, I don't wanna give you mine...

If there's one thing '90s kids know about TLC, it's that a scrub is a guy who can't get no love from them.

But the year is 2017, and the world is crazy. For all we know, maybe TLC is now more open to scrubs?! Fortunately, comedian and writer Paul F. Tompkins tried to find out:

Does anyone know if TLC has relaxed its policy on scrubs?

Some had their own answers...

They still "gets no love", I'm afraid... https://t.co/0Ux2Cyq8e5

Others were confused by the use of "scrub" instead of "buster":

@PFTompkins unfamiliar with these "scrubs." Are you referring to "busters?"

But then something magical happened — TLC chimed in to set things straight:

Some people weren't too happy about that, TBH:

So pissed. https://t.co/LhMRvCf5Sz

It didn't stop there. The people needed to know if we were still using the same old "scrub" terminology — and the answer was an obvious yes:

@edzitron @PFTompkins absolutely....thinks he's fly, sits on his broke ass, etc.

The epic conversation even addressed another TLC classic:

@The_Enabler @PFTompkins we prefer rivers and lakes honestly...

TL;DR: TLC still has a hard no policy against scrubs, they prefer rivers and lakes over waterfalls, and my whole world has changed forever.
