Twitter went ballistic on Sunday night during the Red Sox-Cubs game at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, after a fan proposal was broadcast on the park's video board and things went south fast.
People in attendance said that the camera cut away from the couple in the middle of the broadcast, indicating to many that something had gone wrong.

The scoreboard proposal at Fenway may have just gone awry. There was no hug, the camera cut away and the crowd groaned.— Pete Abraham (@PeteAbe) May 1, 2017
The couple appeared to argue after the cameras cut from the proposal.
Kudos to the woman who drew a line in the sand and said no to the proposal at Fenway. Let this be the beginning of the end for this.— Judd Zulgad (@1500ESPNJudd) May 1, 2017
