Seriously? Again?

In what is becoming a regular thing these days, yet another celebrity in the midst of controversy has reached out to people on Twitter, and yet again it has backfired.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has been under fire for promoting suspicious weight loss products on his show, initiated an online Q&A on Tuesday for people to submit their medical questions.

Instead, he was inundated with Tweets basically calling him a snake oil salesman and a quack.

Here's a few notable examples, but you can read them all on the hashtag: #OzsInbox.
