A woman’s chivalrous act drew flak instead of praise on social media – after she carried her boyfriend through flood waters to save his leather shoes! Photos of the girl carrying her boyfriend through a street in Wuhan, China went viral on Chinese social media site, Weibo.
The photos drew mixed reactions on social media.
While there were those who praised the girl for being ‘one-of-a-kind’ and thoughtful, many branded her as stupid for letting the guy take advantage of the situation; however, the girl defended her boyfriend saying that he would spend a lot of time fixing his shoes if these got wet in the rain.
But many also pointed out that if they had wanted to save the leather shoes, he could still do so by taking it off and walking in the flood like everyone else, including his girlfriend!
One guy wrote, “I would definitely marry that girl if I were that lucky guy. Where can I find a girl like that?”
Still, more people bashed the couple. One wrote, “I understand that it’s their relationship and I have no right to say anything, but isn’t this a little over-the-top? Dude, if you don’t want to ruin your leather shoes, just take them off! And I don’t even know how to describe that girl: naive or stupid?”
