Trolls rejoice! VH1 and Robin Thicke joined forces on Twitter yesterday to answer fans' most burning questions—and it turned out as awful as expected. The “Blurred Lines” crooner had just released a new album/14-track apology to his estranged wife, Paula Patton.

It seems like Robin Thicke’s PR team could have taken note from previous hashtag nightmares as seen in McDonald’s #McDstories, The NYPD’s #myNYPD, and JP Morgan Chase’s #AskJPM campaigns. When will they learn?
