- A man was hilariously exposed for his blatant lies via social media
- He posted photos of how he "treated" his wife to a brand-new car and a romantic supper
- Social media users quickly realised that the two posts included two different women and that the images were stolen
A man went from hero to zero in double-quick time as his fictitious social media post was exposed.
Twitter user @Mthi (@Mthi_) opened up a can of worms when he initially shared a tweet on Thursday to reveal that he "treated" his wife to a sexy new ride - a baby blue BMW.
He then followed this up with another tweet, which highlighted how he arranged a romantic supper for his wifey as well.
However, eagle-eyed tweeps quickly realised that something smelt fishy and dug a little deeper.
Mthi was badly exposed as tweeps first identified the two women as different and then traced the original posts.
Ironically, Briefly.co.za previously reported on both stories from the original sources. We first reported that a beautiful female doctor unveiled her fancy new ride via social media.
South Africans loved the photos, as her post went viral.
Briefly.co.za also reported that Ben Mashala decided to treat his bae like a queen on her birthday.
The romantic man set up a wonderful evening with stunning decorations and a cake.
Mthi's tweet can be viewed below.
