Falwell apologizes for unzipped pants photo: ‘I’m gonna try to be a good boy’ 3

A clerical oligarch gets caught with his pants down. Literally.

By Peter Canellos and Michael Stratford

Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. said on Wednesday that he had apologized for posting a photo of him in unzipped pants and arm around a woman — but also defended the incident as a vacation “costume party” that was “just in good fun.”

The now-deleted photo showed Falwell, a leading evangelical supporter of President Donald Trump, with his pants unzipped and his underwear showing beneath, while he had one arm around a woman whose shorts also appeared to be unbuttoned and his other holding a glass with a dark-colored liquid. The photo appeared to be on board a yacht.

    • I’m from the Lynchburg, Virginia area originally. My family was friends with the Falwell family so I knew all the Falwell kids who are all roughly my age. Jerry, Jr. is a total dickhead. Always was. He inherited all of his dad’s worst qualities (greed, narrow-mindedness, pomposity) and none of the positive ones (generosity, humor, loyalty). Jon, who is the pastor of their megachurch, was okay, as was their sister, who is a surgeon. But Jerry, Jr. was just an entitled asshole.

      • I knew you were from the area, but I didn’t know you knew him. Do you have any interesting history about Falwell? Any chance that you meet Larry Flynt? =-P I used to care more about him before, his branch of religious right seems to be losing power…
