Some days it doesn't pay to show off online. A young woman took to Twitter to flex her new ride and got hijacked on the same day. The alleged thieves must have been tipped off about her car and somehow knew her location.
In a Twitter post by well-known social media commentator Man’s NOT Barry Roux, @AdvoBarryRoux, he shared the woman's post which reveals what happened to her.
He captioned the post with the following:
"South Africa is a crime scene."
The post seems to have been deleted from her page but not before people took screenshots. Briefly News reached out to her and she confirmed that her car was stolen after she posted pics of it online. She revealed that she had deleted the post from her Twitter account.
Briefly News contacted the woman in question for comment but she had not replied by the time of publishing.
Here is some of what Briefly News read in the comments section:
"Not to be insensitive but it seems she didn't buy the car in the first place no ribbons no champagne... No keys I mean people do anything for likes these days... But yes SA is a crime scene."
"One thing I can tell you guys, yall think on Twitter is only good people we socialize with. Our enemies are also on this App. Be careful what you tweet cause not everyone is happy for you. I hope she will recover and get her bakkie back."
"Stop sharing your life on social media guys. You tell people where you are, who you with at what time and what you driving. Might as well share your pin number."
Earlier, Briefly News reported that a group of civilians stepped up and took matters into their own hands when a man allegedly tried to hijack a car.
A video uploaded to Twitter shows two armed civilians apprehending a man on the side of the road in Durban North.
The two civilians are armed and had their guns trained on the suspect. The closest civilian kicked the man to the ground as the security officers approached to restrain him.
As the security officers turn their backs to fetch something from their car, the suspect tried to stand up and was immediately brought back to the ground by one of the civilians.
