A South African woman named Sinazo Bambeni has gained attention online after a photo of her and a man other than her boyfriend was posted on social media.

Bambeni had taken a solo Valentine’s Day vacation in a hotel in East London, South Africa, but didn’t realize that the man’s leg was visible in the mirror selfie she posted on Facebook.

When her boyfriend in Cape Town saw the picture, he ended their relationship.

Bambeni later took to Facebook to blame social media users for making her lose her man and expressed her frustration with the situation.
