A woman suffered a heartbreaking surprise when her doorbell camera caught her boyfriend saying he wants a new girlfriend for Christmas.
Colbi Carlson, 18, from Minnesota, shared the footage on TikTok along with a photo of herself looking upset, writing: ‘As my boyfriend was leaving my house last night, I heard him say something I wish he didn’t…’
In the clip, her boyfriend Cooper is believed to be walking out of her home when he callously tells his friend: ‘You know what I want for Christmas? A new girlfriend.’ His pal then laughs in response.
Yikes: Colbi Carlson, 18, from Minnesota, caught her boyfriend Cooper saying he wanted a new girlfriend for Christmas on her doorbell camera and shared the footage on TikTok
‘Merry Christmas to me,’ Colbi captioned the TikTok, which has been viewed a whopping 28.5 million times since it was posted last Thursday.
The post has received nearly 100,000 comments, many of them urging Colbi to break up with her boyfriend.
‘You mean your ex boyfriend right?’ one person asked, while another agreed: ‘He best be an ex now.’
‘Send that to him and say Merry Christmas your wish came true,’ someone else suggested.
Many people shared their support for the teen after the apparent diss, but some noticed that the video’s audio states ‘THIS IS A JOKE’ in capital letters.

In a bizarre follow-up video, Colbi defended Cooper and claimed the video was just a joke that got out of hand.
‘In regards to my last video, that was a complete joke,’ she said. ‘I actually accidentally told him that he was a downgrade, so he said that back as a joke and apologized — like I was laughing.
‘That picture of me crying was for something stupid from months ago,’ she added. ‘Sorry for the confusion. Sorry for the hate, Cooper. I appreciate the support, though, if this were actually to happen.’
Colbi ended the video by insisting that Cooper is ‘great’ and ‘didn’t do anything.’
Viewers weren’t buying her explanation, however, and some believed her boyfriend actually made her film the video claiming it was a joke.

‘HE DEFINITELY MADE U DO THIS,’ one person commented, while another added: ‘Wear a white shirt in your next video if it wasn’t a joke.’
‘You can literally tell this wasn’t a “joke” and he needs to be gone. Thank you for coming to my TED talk,’ someone else noted.
A number of people pointed out that Cooper made the comment behind her back, which makes her story even harder to believe. Others thought she was just as bad for telling him he’s a ‘downgrade.’
‘How do you “accidentally” tell your boyfriend that he’s a downgrade?’ one person asked. ‘That’s even more of a red flag than what he said.’
‘Accidentally called him a downgrade…also he said that NOT around you?? I can’t take that as joking. Sis you’re both unhealthy, both move along,’ another TikTok advised.
