Geraldo Rivera Selfie to Blame For Canceled Speaking Engagement?

Geraldo Rivera's infamous selfie was the reason Duquesne University canceled his upcoming college speaking engagement, the Fox News host says.

He was set to visit the Pittsburgh college for the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, he tweeted, but that pic of Geraldo Rivera nude nixed the gig.

The selfie of Rivera shirtless in front of a mirror with a towel around his waist created an uproar when he tweeted it in July. Duquesne took notice.

In a statement to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the university said that the photo was "inappropriate and inconsistent" with the Catholic school's values.

Spokesperson Bridget Fare told the newspaper:

"We warn our students not to put anything inappropriate on social media because of potential consequences -- you could consider this teaching by example."

The decision did not sit well with Geraldo at all.

Rivera sounded off on Duquesne, saying that not only was he willing to speak at the school unpaid, he was informed about the cancelation by a third party.

A stranger at a hotel bar introduced himself as a panelist at the upcoming event, then broke the news to Geraldo that he'd gotten the chop. Rough.

What do you think of Duquesne's decision?
