Tubi's Super Bowl Commercial Led to a Couple Breaking Up Because of The Guy's Reaction, Viral Reddit Post Reveals

A woman has revealed that she broke up with her boyfriend because of the way that he reacted to Tubi‘s Super Bowl commercial and the story is going viral online.

A Reddit post, which has since been taken down, reveals the story about what happened to this couple on the night of the Super Bowl.

If you haven’t yet watched the commercial, Tubi played a prank on viewers by making it look like someone was changing the TV to the streamer’s app in the middle of the game. The 15 second commercial received a lot of shocking reactions, but this is the first breakup we’ve heard about.

“I’m sure that in many households it caused chaos and was a funny event but not in mine,” the poster started her story.

The 23-year-old woman says that her 25-year-old boyfriend’s reaction led to their breakup.

“My boyfriend thought I was the one changing the channel and began screaming at me violently, calling me things that I don’t even want to write down. Even as I told him it was a commercial he ignored me and kept blowing up at me and punched a hole in our living room wall. He eventually realized what actually happened and awkwardly apologized but I was so disgusted over his reaction to a 15 second commercial. I feel like if you can’t keep you anger in check and get that violent over something so small I don’t want to be around for it. We’d been together for over a year, living together for the past 2 months and I’ve known him to get angry at things sometimes but this really took me off guard and I can’t forget how unsafe I felt around him during this,” the woman said in her post.

The woman says that her parents believe she is “overreacting” and her boyfriend is messaging and calling her “repeatedly.”

“I don’t think it’s normal to be that angry,” the woman wrote in the post.

Author Amanda Deibert shared a screencap of the post on Twitter and it has been seen over 4.3 million times.

She said, “I am glad to see a young woman seeing a red flag for exactly what it is and doing the right thing. I am sad her parents are trying to urge her to betray herself. I am delighted she is this wise.”


Broadway star Jessica Vosk chimed in, “Amen. As someone who had this boyfriend (🙋🏻‍♀️) and kept him around far too long before I snapped…I’m here to support anyone who is in this position. You. Come. First.”
