(Newsday) Fox News host Geraldo Rivera tweeted, then deleted, a nearly-naked self photo on Sunday morning in an online faux pas amazingly similar to the scandal that engulfed former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY).

Thankfully, the photo did not feature the 70-year-old anchor’s, erm, parts.

“70 is the new 50 (Erica and family are going to be so pissed … but at my age … )” the host of “Geraldo At Large” wrote in his early morning tweet, attaching a shirtless, self-shot photo of him wearing his signature red glasses and a towel that’s a bit too low for comfort.

After the photo began making its rounds on social media, the tweet vanished. “Note to self: no tweeting after 1am,” Geraldo wrote on Sunday afternoon.
