Now people can’t stop tweeting about Jerry Falwell Jr.’s pool boy

Man's legs by pool

We can’t help but feel a wee bit sorry for Jerry Falwell Jr.’s former Miami pool boy, Giancarlo Granda. The poor guy appears to be an innocent bystander in the sex scandal currently plaguing the antigay Christian extremist and Trump devotee.

This week, the 20-something Georgetown University student had to put out a statement saying he doesn’t know anything–nothing, nada–about those “racy” photos of Falwell Jr. that everyone’s been talking about. He also asked people to stop calling him a “pool boy,” as he finds the term demeaning.

Granda’s attorney, Aaron Resnick, told Miami New Times that his client has “no idea about the alleged ‘personal photographs’” of Falwell Jr. and that he definitely isn’t the person who tried blackmailing the evangelical leader, adding that any reports suggesting otherwise are “absolutely false.”

Meanwhile, an attorney for the Falwells has called the whole story “not accurate” and insists “there are no compromising or embarrassing photos of Falwell, period!”

But the statements have done little to quell the chatter on Twitter.

Here’s what people are saying…
