If you were a teenager who looked up to Dr Phil and read this tweet, what would you think? Could you come away thinking that having sex with a girl while she is drunk is a kind of moral gray area? As one commenter responded, "@drphil so is it ok to murder a man while he is drunk?"
This tweet is quite frankly outrageous. How could a respected media personality lead anybody to believe that sex without consent could ever be okay? Has Dr Phil gone out of his mind - or, disturbingly - do he and his team really think that it might be ok?
Please sign this petition to call on Dr Phil to apologise live on air and make it clear that sex without consent is never okay. But most importantly, please sign this petition to call on his team to produce and air an episode of Dr Phil on the importance of consent when it comes to sex. Airing an episode like that will make great strides towards ending the epidemic of sexual violence across the world.
Thank you for your kind attention.
