1. Robin Thicke is planning to answer questions online Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. ET, so in preparation VH1 asked users to submit questions through a hashtag.
2. The hashtag was quickly flooded with queries about his questionable treatment of women, both in the song “Blurred Lines” and in his relationship with his wife Paula Patton, who split with Thicke earlier this year.
28. It’s not the first time a VH1 hashtag went awry; something similar happened to the rapper T.I. just last week.
29. Some people even enjoyed acknowledging what was happening with the hashtag itself:
32. While others were excited to see how the #AskThicke Q&A would go down on Tuesday:
- UK voters sent a massive shock through the world, overturning 40 years of British EU membership.
- Prime Minister David Cameron says he will resign by October.
- British banks got hit hard, and their European peers were hit even harder.
- Scottish leader Nicola Sturgeon says a second independence referendum for Scotland is "highly likely."
