Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. shared a strange photo and quickly deleted it after realizing it was provocative, leaving some to question what was actually going on.
The photo, which was screen captured by Relevant Magazine, shows Falwell on a yacht with his pants undone while holding a woman by the waist–her pants were also undone. The photo also showed Falwell with a glass of dark liquid in his hand.
“I promise that’s just black water in my glass. It was a prop only,” the caption reads.
“In the hours after the screenshot of the photo was posted, Falkirk Center fellow Malachi O’Brien tweeted that the photo was ‘not President Falwell,’” the report said. “The Falkirk Center is the conservative thinktank Falwell started in partnership with Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk. O’Brien deleted that tweet and posted an update, confirming ‘it was Jerry.’”
O’Brien claimed the photo was “taken out of context of the other photos w/ it.”
“What it was was being used to imply is ungodly & seems to have been posted out of context for that reason,” O’Brien then tweeted.
