Jerry Falwell, Jr., has been placed on an indefinite leave of absence from his role as president and chancellor of Liberty University after he posted a bizarre image on social media earlier this month. The Executive Committee of Liberty University’s Board of Trustees met Friday and requested that he take the leave of absence and Falwell agreed, according to the university.
Falwell posted a photo on Instagram earlier this month that showed her and another woman with trousers on the yacht, after which she deleted it. Falwell was holding a drink in his hand and his arm was around the woman. Falwell offered an apology and explanation, but not before the photo went viral.
Falwell said he apologized to everyone involved, but claimed the painting was part of a “costume party.”
