It appears Dr. Oz is the latest celebrity to have a seemingly innocent Twitter campaign go horribly wrong.

“What is your biggest question for me?” Mehmet Oz tweeted to his nearly four million followers on Tuesday, promising to publish the questions on his website.

“How do I get my patients to stop believing your bull?” asked @DrChaya, a Fox News contributor.

“I just got my flu shot, when can I expect to develop autism?” wrote @Smorz7IU.

Dr. Oz was grilled by a Senate panel in June over claims he made about weight-loss products on his TV show, “The Dr. Oz Show.” The celebrity doctor acknowledged that his language about some supplements had been “flowery,” and that he looked forward to finding a way to deal with scams, USA Today reported.



“How do I tell the difference between ‘Flowery Language’ and ‘Bulls—-?’ I’m confused,” wrote @PauliOhukainen.

“Dear @DrOz: is quackery a miracle weight loss cure? Something tells me your walls are going to be a lot lighter w/o your license,” wrote @FluffieDucky.

“I just read that my new detox regimen might be toxic. Can you recommend a detoxification to detoxify my toxins?” wrote @WyoWeeds.
