Rep. Mark Waller (R-NC) is calling on Jerry Falwell Jr. to resign as president of Liberty University, saying a now-deleted Instagram post showing Falwell with his pants unzipped and arm around a woman was part of a patter making him unfit to lead the evangelical Christian institution.
This isn't the first time Falwell has had to apologize for a photo he posted on social media. In June 2020, he deleted a tweet that showed one person in black face and another in a Ku Klux Klan hood and robe after black alumni and religious leaders spoke out against it and his "incendiary rhetoric" over the last several years.
Falwell was also roundly criticized in May for posting the photo with the racist figures, which was taken from Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's medical school yearbook.
In the offending tweet, which criticized Northam's policy to require masks in public, the image was made to appear as though it was the design on a face mask.
That tweet, Falwell said, was intended to "remind all of the governor's racist past."
