Harlem Rapper Finally Meets His 81-Year-Old 'Words With Friends' Buddy
Dec 06 2017
"One night, a few months ago, they started a conversation about who their best friends were, and Spencer said, 'My best friend is an 80-year-old white woman who lives in a retirement community in Florida, ' and I said, 'What?,'" the Rev. Butler toldThe Root.
Spencer Sleyon is a young rapper who goes by the name Half Empty, and his new best friend is an 81-year-old woman in Florida named Roz.
For anyone who needed reminding that not everything about the internet is a awful garbage fire, please allow me to introduce you to Spencer and Roz.
His tweet has been retweeted more than 147,000 times, including by the Words With Friends account, which replied: 'We can't get enough of this! They eventually played more than 300 games against each other. Ms Butler arranged for the pair to meet face-to-face in West Palm Beach.
"I was like, yo, how do you know that word?"
Sleyon tweeted a photo with Guttman on December 1, which has been retweeted more than 240,000 times and received more than 1 million likes as of December 5.
Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter. We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine.
The meeting became possible thanks to Amy Butler, a pastor at the Riverside Church in Manhattan. Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person'.
