A man’s comment about his girlfriend left people fuming after she overheard it on a doorbell camera.
Colbi Carlson was urged to dump her boyfriend after sharing a video of the awkward moment on TikTok.
On the caption of the video, she added: “Merry Christmas to me :(.”
In the clip, she explained: “As my boyfriend was leaving my house last night I heard him say something I wish I didn’t…”
In the video, a man can be seen exiting a house and telling a friend: “You know what I want for Christmas? A new girlfriend.”
The video has been seen 28.4 million times since being uploaded to TikTok.
It has racked up 5.1 million likes and 93,100 likes – with lots of people left outraged by the comment.
One viewer blasted: “Send it to him, be like “good luck with that Christmas wish.”
Another joked: “Help the process by making him available for one.”
A third asked: “You mean your ex boyfriend right?”
A fourth added: “Drop him, you deserve better…treat yourself for Christmas, and take care.”
Following the backlash, Colbi uploaded another video to defend her boyfriend.
She said: “In regards to my last video, that was a complete joke.
“I actually accidentally told him that he was a downgrade, so he said that back as a joke and apologised.
“Like I was laughing, that picture of me crying was for something stupid from months ago.
“Sorry for the confusion and hate, I appreciate the support if that was actually to happen.”
Lots of people were less relieved by the explanation – with one viewer commenting: “Thank god! I thought it was a joke.”
Another added: “Once again, people taking it out of hand.”
A third replied: “Good girl, I was ready to come find him for you.”
But others were less forgiving, with one asking: “How do you “accidentally” tell your boyfriend that he’s a downgrade?”
Another asked: “How is that a joke, I’m confused.”
