    Netizens are ordering an immediate intervention for Phil McGraw after social media users mistakenly labeled him as the tenant of his son’s ostentatious and recently-listed home.

    Jordan McGraw, musician and son of longtime talk show host Dr. Phil, managed to stay below the radar earlier this week as his father

    was relentlessly roasted by netizens for the decor in the $5.75 million, Tuscan-style mansion.

    While it is true that Dr. Phil’s family trust purchased the home in 2007, an article by the LA Times cited a family representative who revealed the TV host never lived at the residence, which was instead inhabited by his son, Jordan.

    Nevertheless, Twitter pounced on Dr. Phil and attributed the gaudy home’s look to the television therapist after an LA Times reporter left out some key details in a tweet about the residence.

    From the numerous “Be@rbrick” collectibles and figure of a cigarette-smoking rabbit to its Tim Burton-esque staircase, the home quickly became the butt of countless Dr. Phil jokes.

    However, those worried about the eye-catching gun display will be happy to know that the “weapons” have a much deeper meaning than one might initially perceive.

    "The 'guns' on display are actually an anti-gun art installation where the useless guns are melted," Jerry J. Sharell, a spokesman for the "Dr. Phil" show, told CNN. He went on to clarify that "the property is held in the McGraw Family Trust, irrevocably," and does not belong solely to the TV host himself.

    Those interested in this “rare” Tuscan-style, Los Angeles dwelling at 1642 San Ysidro Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210, can request info from Hilton & Hyland real estate.
