A man with the username @jordan_vonsmith86 commented about his "girl's" drive-through order taking too long, but ended up being caught by his actual girlfriend, @shanlee_rose.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Burger King for its take on the whole thing, but has not received a response.

So is the breakup story real or not?

Probably not, but that didn't stop people from reporting on it as if it were real.
