Video shows Jerry Falwell Jr. inviting students to his home for 'the real liberty graduation'
A video posted to social media purports to show former Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. speaking to a group of college seniors and inviting them to his home for the "real" graduation.
Save71, a group of Liberty University alumni, students, and faculty, posted tweets saying, "Last night Jerry Falwell Jr showed up to a party of @LibertyU students, got on stage, and invited the seniors to his house for a party on May 8. He said 'we're going to have the real Liberty graduation.'"
Less than a year ago, his wife Becki Falwell was accused of sexually preying on a student, and both Falwells were accused of joking about students they would like to have sex with. @LibertyU has not addressed either allegation.@JerryPrevoLU do you want to address them now?

Last week Falwell was sued by Liberty University for $10 million. From his Twitter account, which still says he's the "University President," Falwell tweeted: "My wife and I were banned from the campus," and added, "We were threatened with arrest if we walk on campus."
Save71 adds "new details about last night's event from one of its hosts: the event was a comedy show, not a party. Multiple families were present. According to others at the event, Falwell appeared visibly intoxicated, but he didn't get the drinks from the party."
