I'm asking this mainly because I'm a serious minded person and sometimes struggle to see the funny side of things.
Anyways there's this guy I know (Ross) who used to have a thing for me like a year ago. We've been talking again a little lately and he's always really nice to me. However he went out on Easter Sunday and ended up getting really drunk.
He left his phone lying and one of his drunk friends picked it up and sent me a message saying 'Invigorate my rotund hairy arsehole, f**king chipmunk' which I took pretty offensively and replied to in a shocked/annoyed manner. Ross messaged me the next day apologising and assured me his friend sent the message, not him.
However I heard today that he actually screenshot yes my reply and posted the rude message along with my shocked reply on Twitter. He entitled it 'I'm glad my social circle includes the sort of adult capable of the likes of this...' and it ended up a lot of people retweeted/favourited it.
I'm really not impressed that he's publicly posted this and I'm feeling quite embarrassed because I had such a bad reaction to it. I just don't know if I'm overreacting though?
I'm guessing he must not like me anymore if he's behaving like this.

You're not overreacting. I honestly think publicly posting it on a social media site was the first draw, if he didn't message you that then why would he screenshot it? Certainly he wouldn't screenshot what a friend messaged you and your reply (unless he's fucking stupid). And to post it on a social media site so people from all over the world could see it? I guess "keep it between us" is out of the question. The second draw was when he was bashing you not in a playful way but in a literal way. But only you know him personally and how he acts like so I wouldn't know. He was drunk and had the "I don't give a fuck attitude." and wanted to put you in your place by belittling you or something. He doesn't like you like that or he thinks being a jerk and thinking that this is somehow "funny" shows that he likes you. The way you reacted to it reassured his beliefs has a man thinking that he's superior and that you're inferior. I'm pretty open minded and I don't get butt hurt over a lot of things but there are times where people cross the line and I honestly think he's crossed that line.1
