A video posted online showed two armed men robbing a man, who withdrew money just moments before.
Onlinemagazin posted a video on Twitter of a man being robbed at gun-point at a gas station.
"An armed Gang of robbers followed a white man as he left a bank, at a gas station he was attacked and robbed.", part of the post read.
However, what was most notable of the incident is how people just stood by. No one attempted to help the man, or call police. They just stood there watching.
Twitter users were fast to point out how people went on with business as usual as the man experienced what was probably one of the most terrifying experiences in his life.
The video painted a gloom picture of South Africa, and because Onlinemagazin is from New York, people from other countries got to see it.
