Geraldo Rivera shared a selfie of himself Sunday morning, pictured half-naked and with a towel covering his privates, writing on Twitter, "70 is the new 50," TVNewser.com reports. Rivera turned 70 July 4.
The Twitterverse responded by retweeting the image hundreds of times, but many of the comments were far from positive. A number of political pundits and TV personalities were among those responding with their own tweets. Here’s a sampling from the TVNewser report:
Meghan McCain: "Thanks internet, I cannot unsee Geraldo Rivera’s naked selfie. So much wrong. So. Much. Wrong…"
Michelle Malkin: "The. Horror."
David Folkenflik: "I must say that on closer review of that Geraldo near-nude selfie, I wish I hadn’t more closely reviewed that Geraldo near-nude selfie."
Anthony Bourdain: "Geraldo throws his hat into the New York mayoral race"
Rivera tweeted the photo sideways, but we’ve rotated it to its upright position:
