A South African couple that became Twitter famous on Valentine’s day after celebrating love by gifting each other a brand new Volkswagen Polo died in a freaky accident this past weekend.
They won so many hearts on the day when the boyfriend bought his girlfriend a brand new VW, but not everyone was celebrating with them.
On Valentine’s day, a number of social media users wished death upon them with the popular “it will end in tears” mantra on their posts.
One of Twitter users by the handle shady_daville foretold their death in a comment under one of the posts.
“vw! early ticket to death, i guess the poor guy is tired of that chick shem!” he said.
