Twitter account 'Kuboobs' facing legal threat from Kansas University

Wellington, June 13 (ANI): Kansas University is reportedly threatening to close a twitter account that is entirely dedicated to pictures of women showing off their bosoms while donning the university's tops.

@Kuboobs, the account, which was launched in 2012 to raise breast cancer awareness and to support the uni's sports teams, called the Kansas Jayhawks, has more than 50,000 followers, Stuff.co.nz reported.

All the pictures posted on the website include just a cleavage and no face.

The warning of a shut down has enraged students and resulted in more pictures of boobs in support.

However, the University bosses are not outraged by the images of boobs but the fact that the account's owners have been selling 'KU Boobs' wristbands via their website, KUboobs.com.

The University is planning to use lawyers in the dispute to protect its trademark 'KU'. (ANI)
