As you probably know, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. “went viral” the other day for all the wrong reasons.

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. posted — and then apparently deleted — a bizarre Instagram post in which he appeared with his shirt hiked up and his pants unzipped, standing next to a woman identified as a “friend.” In the caption, Falwell wrote the drink he was holding was “just black water” and a “prop only.”

The post was captured by Houston Chronicle reporter Robert Downen before it was deleted. The caption says that “Lots of good friends visited us on the yacht.”

This morning, on WLNI radio, Falwell responded to the controversy, saying:

“You know, it was weird…She’s pregnant, so she couldn’t get her pants up. And so…I had on a pair of jeans that I hadn’t worn in a long time, so I couldn’t get mine zipped either, so I just put my belly out like hers…She’s my wife’s assistant and she’s a sweetheart. And I should never have put it out there and embarrassed her. Anyway, I’ve apologized to everybody. I promised my kids, I’m going to  try to be a good boy from here on out...It was a costume party…We were on vacation…Long story short, it was just in good fun, that’s it.”

So there you have it! LOL
