It’s been a year since Robin Thicke took over the airwaves with his summer hit, “Blurred Lines” but feminists, sexual abuse advocates and critics alike aren’t over the dangerous themes and telling lyrics the crooner uses in the song.

So when VH1 and 37-year-old singer teamed up for a Twitter chat, using the hashtag #AskThicke, his opponents seized the opportunity to reach out to Robin directly—and they didn’t hold anything back!

Tweeters asked about everything—from his very public breakup with Paula Patton and subsequent displays of desperation, to that questionable suit and unforgettable performance with Miley—but most seemed to focus on Robin’s troubling lyrics.

Since the song’s release, lyrics like “I know you want it” have been at the center of discussion and criticism by rape victims and women’s advocates alike for the message it sends about consent.

But last night’s #AskThicke Twitter chat was their chance to get even. And the results included a worldwide trending topic and a chance to finally be heard—even at the cost of public humiliation for Robin.
