Robin Thicke And VH1 Laugh Off Questions About Misogyny

Thicke’s Q&A session was flooded with questions about his treatment of women, but the response was simply: “What controversy? Hahaha.”

1. VH1 tweeted Monday night to submit questions with #AskThicke for an online Q&A session that would be held the following day with Robin Thicke. The hashtag was immediately flooded with queries about misogyny.

2. On Tuesday, people continued to engage the hashtag in much the same way:

5. During the Q&A session on Tuesday, Thicke answered about 10 questions:

6. Most questions and answers were pretty silly:

Cause smart people know better :) RT @JT_Gunner #AskThicke Why do fools fall in love?

— VH1 (@VH1)

Too much upkeep RT @ballaterbboy #AskThicke Why don't you bring back the locks, bro?

— VH1 (@VH1)

8. There was even this:

*cartoon blink* RT @VH1 Because "Beatrice" didn't have the same ring to it RT @VH1Music Why did you name your new album "Paula"? #AskThicke

— Karlie Hustle (@THEkarliehustle)

9. But a few questions were answered that were more serious:

Why didn't you write a whole album for her when you were WITH her? #AskThicke

— Chelley (@meisriri)

.@meisriri She's always been my muse only this time from a distance #AskThicke

— VH1 (@VH1)

Yes, the most RT @FreakieChris Was Paula and emotionally challenging album to record? #AskThicke

— VH1 (@VH1)

12. Although, Thicke’s response was basically “listen to the album” to find the answer:

If you cherish #Paula as much as you say, why can't you respect her desire for space & time to think & heal? #AskThicke

— Nichole (@tnwhiskeywoman)

.@tnwhiskeywoman If you listen to the album you wouldn't ask that question #AskThicke

— VH1 (@VH1)

14. VH1 and Thicke both laughed at the “controversy.”

What controversy? Hahaha #AskThicke

— VH1 (@VH1)

15. Thicke also said he could “handle it” and called himself “a big boy.”

I'm a big boy. I can handle it. RT @IamEast Man people are brutal on this #AskThicke
