Young rapper befriends grandma over Words with Friends

Sleyon is a 22-year-old rapper who lives in NY, while Guttman is an 81-year-old retiree who lives in Florida.

The pair have played more than 300 games together - and the rapper said they have become friends despite the distance between them.

Their friendship began last summer when they squared off on Words With Friends, an online game similar to Scrabble.

Sleyon's tweet, and accompanying photos of the two embracing each other, have over one million likes and thousands of re-tweets - clearly, people love these two.

Sleyon told The Root that Roz was his "best friend".

The accounts expressing joy at the unusual friendship story included the official account of Words with Friends. "Besides the obvious - the fact that I'm a young black male and this is an old white woman - a lot of people enjoyed the fact that we were able to get so close, especially given the tension in the country", Sleyon said. Amazing. Thank you for sharing your story with us'.
