Sorry, it looks like you will have to purchase a new mug. If you hadn't told your roommate that the mug had to be hand-washed, you really can't blame her/him for putting it in the dishwasher. When you get the new mug, make sure to show the mug to your roomie and tell her/him that it has to be hand-washed so please just leave it for you to take care of. Obviously, if your roomie knew the ruined mug had to be hand-washed, you should ask them why they put it in the dishwasher
BTW, please make sure the mug does not contain lead. Many items made in China do contain lead.
I can understand about roommates destroying things. I would be happy that the roommate was even helping with cleaning so I would let it slide lol. I suggest seeing if it comes apart first before spending money on a new one. Gotta get that paper in there somehow lol and if that doesn't work buy a new one.
if its what i think it is
you can take them apart
the inside bit (that holds the liquid)
comes apart from the outer "mug" part
its os you can change the inserts if you want to
