While the majority bashed Thicke's "Blurred Lines" performance that was overshadowed by Miley Cyrus twerking all over him, the "Gowing Pains" dad allegedly came to his son's defense via Twitter.

"Anyone expecting the VMAs to have Growing Pains sensibilities does not watch videos and should be familar with content before watching with children. Don't complain, supervise!" tweeted Thicke Senior.

This statement could've been directed to the Parents' Television Council who deemed Robin and Miley's "Blurred Lines" performance at the VMAs as inappropriate "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." Alan also added that the MTV award show is meant to surprise instead of give a warm fussy feeling inside. "The stated mission of the VMAs is shock and awe, not shucks and ahhh like a family sitcom," said the veteran actor.


 

Although it is still undetermined whether this is Alan Thickes official Twitter, other media outlets like IBT have reported this news.

Additionally, in a past interview with CTV News, Alan was without a doubt supporting "Blurred Lines."

"It's not so much 'we know you want it' — it's 'we hope you want it,'" he said. "It's still a guy waiting for permission, saying 'I'm not your maker.' Nobody grabs anybody. We're waiting for permission here. And not only that, but it's guys trying to be cute and funny. This is not a lascivious video. There's no humping and grinding as we've been seeing in music videos for two decades now."
