University of Kansas student, Gavin Colgrove, tweeted a screenshot of a DM gone horribly wrong between him and girl who misinterpreted his profile picture.
Colgrove told Fresh U via direct messaging on Twitter that he did not expect the tweet to receive was much attention as it did, “especially since Corey (the guy on the left) is as ugly as he is.”
The tweet has received 20k retweets and 78k likes and counting, along with “a lot of very vulgar messages, but mostly positive and nice DMs,” Colgrove mentions.
“A lot of people have been ‘volunteering as tribute’ or accidentally messaging me instead of their fathers, saying ‘daddy’ a lot. It’s probably just a classic mixup though.”
Twitter users have been responding with a lot of sympathy for Colgrove.
Colgrove says that he “was pretty surprised” about the whole thing and that now he’s “mostly waiting on MTV to call.”
While it's not the best DM to get, shout out to Gavin for making the best of it and having an awesome sense of humor!
