A man was left frozen in shock when his romantic idea to propose in front of thousands of people backfired as the woman fled the scene as quickly as she could.
During a recent minor league baseball game at Polar Park in Massachusetts, USA, a couple was filmed in what was probably one of the most vulnerable moments in their lives.
The pair were seen being cheered on and even featured on the stadium’s large screen in the background before seeing the entire moment take a turn for the worse.
A man was filmed getting down on one knee holding a small jewellery box with a ring before the woman he hoped to spend the rest of his life with.
The woman was wearing a matching purple t-shirt of the baseball team they both came to support.
To everyone’s shock, the poor bloke’s partner appeared to be completely caught off guard and did not seem happy about his romantic gesture in the least.
The audience was first cheering and expressing their happiness for the doomed couple before some dramatic “oh my Gods” were heard in the crowd as the not-so-soon-to-be-bride began shaking her head and moving backwards.
The woman in question looked like she had seen a ghost, and was visibly extremely uncomfortable as the entire situation unfolded in front of many unfamiliar faces watching on.
In a clip taken of the tragic moment, the woman ran to the edge of the platform she was standing on and told the crowd she had “got to go”.
Her partner was left in absolute dismay, as he was left frozen on his knee with a look of utter confusion on his face.
Naturally, the scene quickly spread online and was shared thousands of times on social media.
The original video, which was shared on Instagram, received 95,056 views in a few days after being uploaded.
Some people thought the incident was a lesson to be learned, as one person wrote: “Lmao never propose in public.”
Another commented: “Salute for a fallen soldier.”
As many critics against the woman spread in the comment section, some followers were in full support of her wish to leave.
One person responded: “Let’s not shame her for using her right to say no.”
Someone else wrote: “Fun fact: you’re 100% allowed to say no.”
