The Vatican is getting closer to solving the mystery of who 'liked' a bikini model's photo from Pope Francis' official Instagram account.

It's doubtful that the head of the Catholic Church 'liked' the naughty photo himself.

It's more likely that a Vatican official forgot to log out of the Pope's account before logging into his own page to browse the IG profiles of scantily clad models.

A sharp-eyed Twitter user spotted the Pope's 'like' and the post went viral on social media.

Barstool Sports captioned the freaky photo: "Pope Francis is horny as hell."

While Pope Francis is staying out of the controversy, Brazilian model Natalia is enjoying her newfound fame. It's not everyday that the Pope gives an Instagram escort his blessing.

"At least I'm going to heaven," Natalia joked.

O.J. Simpson weighed in on Jeffrey Toobin's Zoom masturbation scandal on Monday.

The former NFL running back jokingly compared Toobin to Pee-Wee Herman in a video clip he posted on his Twitter account on Monday.

"Daaaaamn, Jeffrey Toobin. At least Pee-wee Herman was in an X-rated movie theater. I'm just saying," Simpson laughed.

Herman was a fictional children's character portrayed by comedian Paul Reubens, who was arrested for exposing himself in an adult theater in July 1991.

Toobin, 60, was participating in a Zoom video call with his colleagues at New Yorker magazine and WNYC radio staffers when he began pleasuring himself.

The writers on the call included Jane Mayer, Evan Osnos, Masha Gessen and Jelani Cobb, who were simulating scenarios for the upcoming presidential election.

At some point during a break in the Zoom call, a few of the writers observed Toobin begin to masturbate.

New Yorker editor David Remnick sent an email to staffers informing them that Toobin had been suspended.

"Please be assured that we take such matters seriously and that we are looking into it. Best, David," Remnick wrote.

Toobin apologized on Monday for the "embarrassingly stupid mistake."

"I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers," Toobin told Motherboard

"I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video," he added.

Toobin, a Harvard law grad, will also take a leave of absence from CNN, where he served as chief legal analyst.

Toobin made a name for himself covering Simpson's double murder case, which was dubbed "the trial of the century" in 1995.

His book on the murder case was adapted as a TV series, The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which won 9 Emmy Awards.

Simpson, 73, was acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman. But a civil jury found him liable for wrongful death and battery. Simpson was ordered to pay over $33 million in damages to the Goldman family.

Howard Stern trended on Twitter.com after an unearthed video clip showed him wearing blackface and telling racist jokes during a comedy skit.

The clip was posted on Twitter.com, and retweeted by Donald Trump, Jr. prompting a backlash against Stern, who had claimed on daytime talk show "The View" that he never used the 'N-word'.

In the skit, Stern plays actor Ted Danson in blackface while seated on the lap of the late comedian Sherman Helmsley, who plays Danson's then-girlfriend Whoopi Goldberg.

Helmsley, best known for his role as George Jefferson on CBS television series All in the Family and The Jeffersons, pretends to be shocked as Stern drops the N-word repeatedly while saying, "Whoopi wrote it."

The skit was a parody of Danson's infamous blackface performance with Goldberg at a Friar's Club roast in 1993. Stern's sidekick Robin Quivers is seen in the clip criticizing Stern for his repeated use of the N-word.

Stern expressed regret about the controversy on his SiriusXM show on Monday: "The s**t I did was f**king crazy," Stern said. "I'll be the first to admit. I won't go back and watch those old shows; it's like, who is that guy.

"The big headline is this, and this is my fear in all of this," Stern continued. "I was able to change my approach, able to change my life and change how I communicated. If I had to do it all over again, would I lampoon Ted Danson, a white guy in blackface? Yeah, I was lampooning him and saying, I'm going to shine a light on this. But would I go about it the same way now? Probably not. Not probably, I wouldn't."

Stern challenged Trump Jr. and his father President Trump to seek therapy.

"At the same point, I will say, it f**king distresses me that Donald Trump Jr. and Donald themselves won't go into psychotherapy and change. Why not change the way you're approaching things because, wearing a mask is not a bad thing?"
