Eagle-eyed social media users are in debate over whether or not a gummy ring baseball proposal video was staged after spotting a suspicious detail.
Earlier this month, a video went viral of a woman slapping her partner at a Toronto Blue Jays vs Boston Red Sox game at the Rogers Centre.
Her boyfriend was caught on camera kneeling down on one knee in front of the crowd of thousands, producing a ring box out of his trousers, only to reveal a gummy ring.
Despite the initial shock and outrage from social media users over the girlfriend's extreme and violent reaction, many have since debated whether or not the incident was actually real.
As well as slapping her partner, the woman also proceeded to throw her drink all of over him, shouting, 'What the f**k is wrong with you' before storming off.
Her reaction to the proposal led to divided views across social media, however most viewers were pretty angered by her behaviour.
One wrote: "You can’t mess with someone like that. He humiliated her in front of THOUSANDS of people. Her emotions were probably the most exciting moment ever…"
However, another echoed the view held by a majority: "If she loved him. engagement or candy engagement..... yes should [have] been the answer. 10/10 not the girl for him."
While the video initially sparked heated conversations over the the woman's 'aggressive' behaviour, it has since triggered a discussion about whether or not the incident was an act, set up by the couple in order to promote something.
Eagle-eyed viewers of the video were quick to notice the girl in the video is wearing a top which reads: 'Love Lost Manhattan'.
A quick few Google searches reveal 'Love Lost Manhattan' is a swimwear brand who's CEO is a man called Alexander Korda - the guy who proposes in the video.
Korda also uploaded the video to his Instagram page.
The caption reads: "Shop @lovelostmanhattan i guess nextime I should get a real ring! Shop at: www.LoveLostManhattan.com."
Users were quick to put two and two together and many are now convinced the proposal was completely staged so Korda could promote his company.
One said: "This is so obviously fake. And for people that don’t believe me look at his hashtags it’s literally for promotion purposes."
"Ya don’t realize its fake and that’s not his gf and the video was to get views and get famous…" another wrote.
However, ultimately, as another put it, given the video has gone viral,: "The strategy worked."
