Robin Thicke - Robin Thicke Tackles Detractors In Twitter Chat

R&B star Robin Thicke tackled his critics head-on on Tuesday (01Jul14) after taking part in a Twitter.com chat, which had been bombarded with negative comments.

Bosses at U.S. Tv network Vh1 faced a backlash on Monday (30Jun14) after attempting to field questions from Twitter users for the Thicke session using the hashtag #AskThicke, but the promotional stunt backfired as detractors used the opportunity to attack the singer instead.

The star's reputation has taken a hit over the past year after he was accused of misogyny over the controversial lyrics to Blurred Lines, which many women's rights campaigners claimed promoted sexual violence, while he faced further criticism over his split from wife Paula Patton earlier this year (14) following allegations of his infidelity.

Critics took advantage of the #AskThicke tag and one Twitter user wrote, "Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?", while another took aim at Thicke for attempting to woo actress Patton back by naming his new album, Paula, after her and issuing multiple public pleas to her, taunting, "How many times do you expect Paula to forgive your bs (bulls**t)..."

The Vh1 Twitter chat still went ahead as planned on Tuesday, with Thicke even addressing some of the more critical comments after declaring, "I'm a big boy. I can handle it."

When one fan asked, "Why didn't you write a whole album for her when you were With her?", he replied, "She's always been my muse only this time from a distance".

In response to another asking, "Do you honestly think that what you're doing is going to win Paula back?", he wrote, "I have no idea. I just want the world to know how special she is".

Another tweeter suggested he should give his estranged wife some space - and not write songs about her and name his new album after her.

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

Thicke responded, "If you listen to the album you wouldn't ask that question."

He was also asked if he's still in touch with the 2 Guns star, and replied, "Yes because our child comes first."

The former couple has a four-year-old son, Julian Fuego.
