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.


Here’s the full post that has over 100 comments, been shared over 200 times and 'liked' over 2000 times: 

Some folks in the comment section found the caption in poor taste but others saw the funny side, like local TV personality Anele Mdoda. 

Here's her repost:

Maserati not like this though. Savage. ????????
