UPDATE: Rivera deleted his tweet with the selfie photo Sunday afternoon and offered this kinda, sorta mea cupla (to which fellow Fox News host Greg Gutfeld replied in his own special way):
Fox News host Geraldo Rivera tweeted a jaw-dropping half-nude “selfie” mirror photo early Sunday.
“70 is the new 50,” the shirtless Rivera wrote from what appears to be a bathroom, 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…)”
Rivera, incidentally, is wearing rose-colored glasses in the photo.
The tweet came from Rivera’s verified Twitter account. Rivera has given no indication his account was hacked.
The photo was posted hours after Rivera was reportedly jeered at a rally for slain teenager Trayvon Martin in New York on Saturday.
Stunned reaction to the photo poured in from Twitter users, many involving variations of “Why?!,” “Oh my God” or the Internet-speak version, “OMG.”
“Leave the selfies to the teenage girls YOU CREEP!” radio host Gregg “Opie” Hughes tweeted.
