70-year old veteran Fox News reporter Geraldo Rivera says he was too drunk to realize that he was posting a scandalous semi nude pic of himself on Sunday.
The TV personality explained in an interview Monday morning with Scott & Todd on 95.5 PLJ Radio in New York City that his nude selfie decision was influenced by alcohol and he didn’t realize what he did till the next morning.
In the video he admits, ‘I was back in the bathroom at 2:30. I had a couple of drinks. I said “Dammit I like that picture!” I learned how to use Twitter a couple weeks ago.’
He then revealed the drink that drove him Twitter nuts:
‘This weekend was tequila. I never do tequila when I’m alone and I had a new bottle that someone had given me. I got so many bottles for my birthday.’ He then admitted that he drank two bottles, and the second bottle ‘sealed’ his ‘fate’ ‘cos at that point, taking and posting the scandalous pic ‘seemed like a great idea’.
Anyways, he believes that his bosses at Fox will not fire him, though he received a call from them to take the pic down before he finally did. ‘I figured they’d cut me some slack because I’m so old!’ he joked.
