Cape Town – South African social media users had a strong reaction to a caption on a Facebook post by car brand Maserati.

The picture in the post features two men in a Maserati showroom in Cape Town.

The pair had seemingly just bought Maserati merchandise but neither own a vehicle made by the luxury car brand.

Here’s the much talked about caption: 

Mr. Sam Siviwe and Mr. Buyela Qhinjanna are not yet Maserati owners, but they wear the Trident badge with pride. They paid us a visit to have a look at the merchandise at our Cape Town showroom and decided on a Maserati cap each. True Maserati fans. Thank you for your support guys.
