Over the weekend people checking into Twitter hoping to hear news of Kate Middleton’s labor were instead punished by a truly disturbing image. If you felt a disturbance in the force yesterday, if you heard the sound of screaming all over the world, this is why: Geraldo Rivera posted a nude selfie, sideways, with the caption, “70 is the new 50.” Scores of Twitter users were immediately blinded by the sight of Rivera wearing nothing but rose-tinted glasses (indeed …) and a bath towel tied way too low around his hips.
