Many of us, at some point of time in our lives, have come across room mates that we haven’t liked. Whether there were ego-clashes, adjustment issues or mere difference in opinion, sometimes you just don’t gel. However, this story of two roommates is sure to make you cringe. In a series of Instagram posts, Brianna Brochu shared a detailed version of all the things she did to get rid of her room mate Chennel Rowe. Unaware about this secret war, Rowe was informed about these posts by one of her friends who followed Brochu.

In her post Brochu, who is a student at the  University of Hartford wrote, “After one and a half months spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions, rubbing used tampons on her backpack, putting her toothbrush places where the sun doesn’t shine, and so much more, I can finally say goodbye to Jamaican Barbie.”

Once informed about the things that her room mate had inflicted upon her behind her back, Rowe decided to speak-up about the issue on social media. First, she posted clarifying that she didn’t want to be just another statistic as a young African-American woman. She further wrote about the prevalence of racism in colleges and universities and added that she would fight for herself. She later went live giving details about everything that happened.
