Alleged Jameis Winston snapchat goes viral

Wednesday December 3rd, 2014

A likely fake Snapchat allegedly sent by Florida State's Jameis Winston is going viral thanks to the raunchy request it contains.

Snapchat allows users to send photos that can only be seen for a preset amount of time before they disappear forever, making it ideal for the sending of sensitive material.

Jameis' alleged image, which can be seen here, is asking for, how do you say, "intimate" photos from a female FSU student, which someone then took a separate photo of and posted to the internet.

Many have been quick to point out that while the original article claims the photos were taken last weekend, Winston's hair appears to be much shorter in the photo than it was on the field for the game against Florida, lending credence to the idea that a clever college football fan has faked the photograph.

The images provenance is obviously difficult to trace and there are entire websites dedicated to the art of faking Snapchat pictures, but anything salacious involving the reigning Heisman champ is bound to take on a life of its own.
