In the long-overdue sexual harassment and assault reckoning that is taking place right now, there are really only two ways to respond to allegations that arise as a man.

  1. Condemn the guilty party; or
  2. Shut the fuck up

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera took a markedly different tack last night after Matt Lauer was ousted at NBC. He not only defended him but dismissed the severity of the allegations by calling news a “flirty” business and claiming courtship is being criminalized.

Now, there are almost too many things wrong with that tweet to truly, properly dissect everything terrible about it, but let’s start here: Maybe don’t try to defend a serial sexual harasser/abuser when you yourself may have a number of skeletons in your own closet.
