College Roommates Exchange Nude Photos for a Puppy
A tweet has gotten all kinds of attention online, both positive and negative, about a group of freshman college roommates who exchanged a friend's nude photos for a Husky puppy.
The women, who live together in San Antonio, Texas, had been wanting to get a dog, so when one of them saw a friend from home selling nine Husky puppies online, she asked him how much they were. He answered with the message: "Send nudes," but then followed up by saying it was actually a friend who'd sent the text, not him.
However, the girl who originally sent the text told her roommates about it anyway, and one of them got the idea of sending nude photos she'd been sent by a friend of hers who'd asked her to look through them and pick the one in which she looked best.
They asked the friend who sent the nudes, who actually agreed, and they sent off the photos to guy from home who'd posted about the puppies. The roommates picked up their new puppy, who's named Balto, last week.
One of them thought the whole story was so funny that she decided to tweet about it, and that drew a lot of backlash from people who blasted them for what they'd done, although a lot of people thought it was great too. The roomie who posted the photo defended them, emphasizing that they're friends with the girl whose nudes they traded and that they had her full consent. She also told BuzzFeed that if she'd know how viral the tweet would become, she probably wouldn't have posted it.
