Since the journalist's employment history resurfaced, punters have questioned the "fairness" of him hosting the debate.
Scully then stirred more commotion when a cryptic tweet was posted on his account.
"@Scaramucci should I respond to trump," the Thursday night tweet read.
The message appeared to be directed at former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
Social media users have been left speculating whether the tweet was meant to be public or not.
Donald Trump Jr slammed Scully last night, writing: "Are you kidding me. Steve Scully the former Biden intern and moderator of the next debate thinks he’s DMing… but he’s doing it out loud. Yea, totally not a setup. Journalism is dead."
Some event suggested that the moderator should be replaced following the second debate.
It is still unclear when the debate will take place following Thursday's announcement that it would be made virtual.
"I'm not going to waste my time doing a virtual debate," Trump said following the news.
Trump's campaign manager, Bill Stepien, echoed the president's sentiments, saying: "We'll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead."
However, during an interview with Fox Business on Thursday, the president said that he would not do a rally if he was still contagious.
Biden's campaign also confirmed that he will not participate in the event but instead "will find an appropriate place to take questions from voters directly on October 15th, as he has done on several occasions in recent weeks," according to Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield.
The campaign suggested that the debate is moved to October 22.
In an additional statement, Stepein agreed with the prospective date, "and accordingly, the third debate should then be shifted back one week to October 29."
However, the Biden campaign has rejected the proposal to move the date of the third debate.
