No really, this happened! You need to remember that if you are not a 10 in the US, you’re not a 10 over there either! That was the spring break warning message from the State Department twitter account yesterday:

Travel Warning

Social media did not appreciate the tweet, with many calling it sexist and asking if the State Department was implying that “fugly people were being targeted for roofies”. The Department stood by its first tweet at first before issuing an apology a few hours later.
