Former "Dawson's Creek" star James Van Der Beek also had to out his repulse for the whole spectacle as he insulted Thicke's suit that reminded some of Bettlejuice. "Things I learned watching the VMAs 2013: If the goal is to not look creepy onstage with an underage twerker, a striped suit is not your friend," tweeted the actor.

Thicke's suit at the VMAs was actually the same one from his new video for "Give It 2 U," his new single that he also performed at the VMAs with 2Chainz and Kendrick Lamar. There were others who also had a hard time hiding how unpleasantly surprised they were over the Thicke and twerkinf Cyrus unrated show. One tweeter pointed out how Will Smith and his family all had the same face of disgust and disbelief.

Canadian broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi predicted that Thicke will be living with some "what ifs" after the performance. "Impact of VMAs is unralted to who wins awards. It's all about moments that get attention. Robin Thicke may regret tonight's appearance," said Ghomeshi.

Ghomeshi just might be right because "women exploitation" claims are coming back to the forefront as the Parents' Television Council express their outrage over the "Blurred Lines" VMAs performance.
"This is unacceptable," a spokesperson for the group said in a statement, according to NY Daily News. "MTV continues to sexually exploit young women by promoting acts that incorporate 'twerking' in a nude colored bikini."
Despite this, Thicke has no regrets at the moment for his VMAs stunt. Right after his set, Thicke saluted the performance.

In fact, Us Weekly reported the "Blurred Lines" singer already expected Cyrus to twerk out on him.
"He had fun and was fine with how it came out," an insider told the publication. "He knew what they were going to do and thought it was fun and awesome. He had a great time."
