South Africans love wedding proposals so much that they often want to be part of the wedding like they did with the famous KFC wedding.
Unfortunately, a McDonald's proposal is trending for a not so successful reason.
On 27 April, a couple went into a McDonald's at Sandton City Mall and the man is seen behind a woman who is placing an order. He proposes and she seemingly declines before storming off.
Sibusisiwe Moyo was in the store when it all happened. "People started coming when they saw him on his knee. He was on his knee for approximately three minutes," she tells us.
The man was persistent and hoping to hear a 'yes' as he held a black box, presumably with a ring in it, in the air, but the woman kept shaking her head.
She seemed agitated and angry. She eventually turned around to speak to the man on his knee but whatever she was saying didn't look like something good was about to happen.
On-lookers tried to get her to say yes, but she walked out of the store and left him there.
"She just walked away and continued walking out the mall, and he followed her," Sibusisiwe says. Leaving a disappointed crowd behind.
I watched this 10 times like why is she buying her kid so much McDonald’s and walking off without it ?????? then when he stood up I was thinking “oh maybe they’re taking it home but she couldn’t push it” nothing in me said this was a proposal bc why are you in McDonald’s https://t.co/jNU7DSssfc— Lovina ??

At the time of publishing we were unable to get comment from the couple.
