*Well now, what do we have here, Mr. Gerald Rivera?
Hmm, looks like a meltdown. Ok, maybe that’s not entirely accurate. Maybe it’s a lapse in judgment.
Whatever it is, Geraldo’s got some serious ‘splainin’ to do.
The Fox News host/darling tweeted a breath-taking (for some) half-nude “selfie” mirror photo early Sunday along with this message: “70 is the new 50.”
the shirtless Rivera also wrote from what appears to be a bathroom … with a fluffy white towel or robe positioned very low in front of his hips: “(Erica and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age…)”
This is the same guy who basically said Trayvon Martin was asking for trouble just because he wore a hoodie the night he was killed.
Speaking of which, according to The Blaze, a conservative (Glenn Beck owned) website/newsletter, the pic was posted hours after Rivera was reportedly dissed at a rally for Trayvon in New York on Saturday.
Naturally, the reaction to the photo was pure shock. A lot of Twitter users were using variations of “Why?!,” “Oh my God” or the Internet-speak version, “OMG.”
Here’s one we love that pretty much sums it all up:
“Leave the selfies to the teenage girls YOU CREEP!” radio host Gregg “Opie” Hughes tweeted.
And from the for what it’s worth dept., Rivera is wearing rose-colored glasses in the photo.
And yes, the tweet came from Rivera’s verified Twitter account. And so far, he hasn’t played the “My Twitter account was hacked” card. At least not yet.
Like we said, Mr. Rivera’s go some ‘splainin’ to do and we can’t wait to hear his explanation.
Here’s more Twitter response:
