'Worst Thing I Ever Posted': The No. 1 celeb social media blunder

'Worst Thing I Ever Posted': The No. 1 Celeb Social Media Blunder
E! counted down the top 10 unfiltered, regretful and embarrassing celebrity social media moments on the special, "Worst Thing I Ever Posted."

So who topped that list? Geraldo Rivera, proving that bad judgement knows no age. Back in July, Rivera posted a near-naked selfie on Twitter.

Other contenders for most embarrassing celebrity moment were Kim Kardashian, Amanda Bynes and Justin Bieber ... but they all fell short of Rivera's nakedness.

Rivera's decision to tweet after drinking too much tequila had some repercussions.

The infamous selfie actually cost Rivera a speaking gig that year at Duquesne University.

"A spokesperson for the Pittsburgh school said the 70-year-old's photo was 'inappropriate and not in line with the school's values as a Catholic university.' Rivera called the cancellation 'pretentious censorship.'"

Fans on Twitter were loving the show, saying it was pretty hilarious and entertaining.

Hilarious......it isn't going to matter for someone like Geraldo. He has money, and it won't cost him anything; although I don't know who wants to look at him naked anyway. However, young folks need to understand when you post naked (or near naked) pics of yourself, they can go anywhere. Employers could get hold of them.

Terms like hater and selfie are so high school and grade schoolish. People and the author of this article need to grow up and act and talk like adults.

OK guys, if you believe this is a REAL photo of Geraldo Rivera... you are naive. This is photo shoped! Don't believe ANYTHING you see in photos. It's just way to easy to change them!

Geraldo has always been narcissistic and eager to show off his body. Frankly, I'm pretty impressed that he's in such good shape at 70. I was never as offended as everyone else by this photo. It's innocent enough, and he lost credibility years ago, so what's the problem? The "questionable taste" was demonstrated by Duquesne University for inviting him to speak in the first place.

His body looks better than that of a 35 year old. I'd show it off too.

Sorry Rivera, it was the "Creepy Factor" fear of "guilt by association" that caused them to come to their senses and cancel your address. After all, some people do have their standards. I know that is a strange concept to Rivera (kinda like how Al Capone's hidden safe turned out).

That's funny about Capone's safe, you would think after that one no one would hire him. I for one think he should shut up as I am not much of a fan...!!
