Spencer tweeted photos with Roz - and his post now has more than one million likes on Twitter. "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?,'" Butler told The Root. After that, they went on to play over 300 more games together.

Spencer was quick to shut down any rumours that Roz may be in the lead when it comes to their Words with Friends battles.
